Autumn is the season for making changes, starting new projects and pursuing new goals. Students, startups and job seekers know that can be hard work.
I know how overwhelming change can seem with so many moving parts to think about. So, I’m going to suggest 3 steps to overcome the overwhelm problem and get your smile back:
Accept Your Feelings
If your new project feels nightmare-ish work out how to break down your big goal into more manageable chunks. When we aren’t struggling life feels better. Start completing those smaller steps and you will feel more in control of your situation.
Build Your Network
Take time to connect to people who you can help and who can help you. Reduce the number of people in your world who drain your energy and frustrate your focus.
Celebrate Your Progress
I know it is obvious, but sometimes we don’t notice we are improving and downplay positive feedback. We should be hungry to receive constructive feedback and able to feel good about the significant improvements we start to make once we get going.
What’s Your Next Move?
Obviously, these are tasters of bigger themes and it isn’t easy to put these 3 steps into practice. It is worth it though. Give it a go and feel free to comment on how things work out. Like and Share too so others can benefit too.
Have a great month.
