Recently during a group coaching session one woman was describing how she was on overload and in total overwhelm. She had more to do than there were hours in a day. The more she talked about the situation the more her energy escalated. The feeling of overwhelm was radiating from her.
Have you ever felt like this? So much to do and so little time to do it?
As the woman’s energy was approaching red line, I told her to take a deep breath and feel into this. I said to her:
“If you pick a big yes, you’re going to have to say no to something.”
This is true for everyone who has a big calling that they have said yes to.
Hearing this shifted the woman from being consumed by overwhelm and overload to evidence that she said yes to a big calling. Just naming that began to shift how she was feeling because she was owning her calling which then led her to begin prioritizing what was important based on her calling which she knows she’s here to fulfill.
If you are feeling the overwhelm and overload, stop right now and take a deep breath, feel into this. What are you here to do and be? Prioritize what to say yes and what to say no to with that in mind and it will change everything.
What are you ready to say yes to? What gets a no because it’s not really a priority? Share your thoughts and feelings in the comments section. We all learn and grow together when we share.
