You’re DROWNING but there is no water around you. That’s EXACTLY how you feel because you’re drowning in OVERWHELM.

  • Have you ever felt like the walls were closing in on you?
  • No matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to get ahead?
  • There’s so much to do that you don’t know where to even begin?
  • Or maybe something catastrophic has happened to you and you see no way out?

I KNOW how you feel. I’ve been there too.

=> WHEN I SAW IT, MY HEART SANK. I THOUGHT I HAD JUST KILLED MY BOYS!
I had unintentionally put myself and my boys in harms way. In the path of an EF-4 TORNADO!

  • I’ll never forget the overwhelm of fear when I saw the size of the tornado.
  • I’ll never forget the overwhelm of sadness when I saw the devastation.
  • I’ll never forget the overwhelm of frustration when I didn’t know what to do.
  • And I’ll never forget the RELIEF after I finally overcame my overwhelm.

There were 3 specific things I did, or as I since have called them, 3 Daily Doables, that helped me overcome my overwhelm not only in that situation but in other situations too.
I would like to share these 3 Daily Doables with you.

Daily Doable #1: Make A Plan
If there is ONE thing coming face to face with a tornado reinforced in my thinking it was this, life is fragile and we need to number our days. By numbering our days, I mean make every day count. Plan your days so that you are making the most of your time.

I would like to invite you to check out,
20,000 Days and Counting: The Crash Course for Mastering Your Life Right Now
by Robert D. Smith.
This book has helped me to plan my days. We all have a finite amount of time on this earth so let’s make the most of EVERY day. The stories in 20,000 Days are compelling and reinforce why we should really make every day count.

Here’s the LINK.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Doable #2: Keep It Simple
Many times, people make things too complicated and overlook the simple or little things. It’s been said, the little things make a BIG difference.

I would like to invite you to check out,
The Little Things: Why You Really Should Sweat the Small Stuff by Andy Andrews
This book has helped me to not overlook the little things in life. Like 20,000 Days, the stories are compelling and reinforce why we “should really sweat the small stuff.”

Here’s the LINK.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Doable #3: Do What You Can
This was the most liberating doable for me. I didn’t try to do what others were doing. I made a plan, I kept the plan simple and I did what I could.
Space won’t permit me to go into all of the details here of what I did but I have recorded it in a short KINDLE BOOK. I will say this much. With the help of many of my friends and neighbors, we were able to raise $89,000 in relief money to aid those directly impacted from the tornado.

Here’s the LINK.

 

 

 

 

 

 

These 3 Daily Doables not only helped me overcome the overwhelm of the tornado tragedy but they have helped me overcome the overwhelm in other less threatening situations.

Take a deep breath and decide that you will overcome overwhelm once and for all too.
You can do it!
