If you’re a entreprenuers who struggles with Wanting a quick solution creates even more stress and overwhelm, then read this immediately because the solution is inside this article.
Typically this problem presents itself in 3 stages. Let’s take a closer look at each stage and how to solve it.
Stage #1: “Wanting a quick solution creates even more stress and overwhelm”
How do you describe the problem at this stage? At this stage you probably haven’t even figured out what your stress is all about. You may know you’re feeling a little anxious but really haven’t taken the time to figure out why.
First take your time. Do some introspective thinking about why you’re actually feeling the way you’re feeling. A quick solution can work if you know what you are creating the solution for. If you find that you completed some techniques to get rid of your stress only to feel it come back or actually never leave then you probably haven’t truly identified the problem.
Any tools, insight, or advice to stop the problem here and keep it from getting any worse?
Stage #2: “It’s a Habit”
According to the dictionary, a habit is an acquired pattern of behavior that has become almost involuntary as a result of frequent repetition.
Even though your habit may seem automatic, behind it stands a thought, a choice, and a decision. You are going to be developing the skill of awareness throughout this empowerment course. You will be conscious of your choices and why you choose them. All actions have consequences. It’s time for new actions that bring new results.
A new habit takes at least 21 days of consistent effort to set in – When we try to change a behavior/habit or implement a new one, it takes at least 21 days of consistent repetitive behavior for it to set in. If it happens to be an addiction, it could take as long as 35 days, or more. No quick fix is designed to change habits.
You cannot fix any problem you have not admitted to yourself that you have. Staying in a denial state of mind only prolongs your pain and reinforces behaviors that make you unhappy with yourself.
List exactly what habits you have that hurt your health, add to your waistline, waste your time, or in some way make you feel bad or angry with yourself:
Stage #3: “It takes hard work and commitment.
How many times have we started a new project, exercise routine, or diet plan bursting with energy and enthusiasm only to see wane and wither away? Too many, I’m sorry to say.
The truth is, it isn’t easy to stay focused and committed, which is why, once again, we look for the quick fix instead of buckling down and getting on with it.
If we recognize that it will take time, hard work and continued dedication to develop and improve ourselves, we would save a lot of time and heartache.
