How To Overcome Stress

Overcoming stress or overwhelm in your business can be one of the hardest emotional and physical challenges you face. Here in the first part of a two part series on overcoming stress, I present one awesome tool for you to use.

Before we get onto that, let's be honest here.

You might not even know you are experiencing stress or overwhelm. Take a moment and look at the feelings or statements and ask yourself if any of these sound familiar to you?

"I’m overwhelmed, torn and frustrated"

"My business is time consuming and tiring"

"I’m spreading myself too thin"

"I'm exhausted"

"I have to force myself to take action"

"I can’t make a decent living"

"I’ve got lack of structure"

"I’ve got a lack of clarity"

"I’m pulled in so many different directions, there’s distractions everywhere"

If you said yes to any of the above then read on!

Overcoming Overwhelm - Are You In Flow?

If any of the above statements rang true for you then take note. These are the words that come from someone who is out of flow.

When I say flow - I mean what Carl Jung called synchronicity, the collective unconscious. When we are in flow, i.e, doing what we love to do and it comes so easily to us it doesn't even feel like work, then we somehow attract positive coincidences, experiences, situations, opportunities.

When we are out of flow - we experience stress and overwhelm.

So, this is why you need to get back in flow.

How To Overcome Stress - The Habit Of Connection

To overcome your feeling of overwhelm and stress, I want to suggest one lifestyle tool you can use everyday to start creating connection. I call this your connection habit.

The habit of connection is about reconnecting to your soul, to the collective unconscious, the universe, what God wants for you, for your soul - that’s what you need to reconnect to.

Because when you have your connection, you’ll be creating synchronicity, you’ll be tapping into that collective unconscious, you’ll be creating flow. Magic will happen to you, but it will be no accident and that’s where your ultimate lifestyle business comes from.

So, the secret to overcoming overwhelm and getting back into our sense of flow, the secret is maintaining connection regularly. We’ve got to have a habit of connection and if you want to create your ultimate lifestyle or you just want to eradicate stress or overwhelm then you must create a connection habit.

That means it’s not something that happens once, it’s not something that happens twice. It’s something that happens everyday. You stay connected and every single day, you need to make sure that you do that.

And so what we need to do is to create that habit connection?

We'll look at that in Part Two.

How To Create Your Dream Lifestyle

Create a SUPERLATIVE LIFESTYLE BUSINESS!

This week has been a very family oriented one for me... Friday night was a small engagement party in Hobart with my family-which was LOADS of fun.  I'm really close to my family here, and love catching up with all my aunts, uncles and cousins!


Then on Sunday it was my Mum's 60th birthday.  We surprised her with a delightful cruise down the Derwent River to a wonderful venue called Peppermint Bay.  As my sisters Kath, Emma and I worked on the speech, we discovered she had packed over 7,200 lunchboxes in her time... WHOA!

The rest of the week was looking at wedding venues for our own Big Day in January.  Oh my Lord.  I'm in the events industry, but I'm telling you... finding a wedding venue is no mean feat.  I'll let you know how we progress.

It honestly rocks to be able to take some time to spend with family like this though. Make it a mission to create a SUPERLATIVE LIFESTYLE BUSINESS!  You'll never regret it!

Business Transformation Week

This week has all been about the wonderful MDM and the Business Transformation Week on the Gold Coast.  I have to tell you, the breakthroughs and growth we saw over the 7 days was INCREDIBLE!

We took them out on the high ropes course and it was absolutely pouring with rain.  If you haven't seen it already check out last week's BTS tip!  You know what though?  They all kept their spirits high and completed a really challenging course in the torrential flood-causing rain.  There were literally dozens of roadblocks and floods around the Gold Coast area, yet these guys still rose to the challenge.

Anyone can do a ropes course in the fine weather (phobias permitting!) but in the flood-causing rain?  I guess it was like making money in July 2008 vs post-GFC.  The ecnomic climate has changed but it doesnt mean we can't succeed in business...it just means that we need to be a little more cautious.

Anyhow - they were such an amazing bunch.  Check out some of these photos from the ropes course and from our super fun awards nights.  There's lots of photos on facebook for you.
