Overcome Your Fears and
Take Back Control of Your Life
by Kevin Hogan
Here's what you can you do if you start feeling despondent:
Reduce the despondency to small elements.
Break down larger desired outcomes into slightly smaller ones and focus on taking attainable daily actions for longer periods of time. Do this and you will create a nice steady momentum.
Your actions must not be too small or the sense of momentum will never come and that feeling
of "rolling" is very important to achievement.
Work in four hour blocks taking about 10 - 15 minute breaks every hour. In four hours you can make very REAL progress toward significance.
People who work on something for 20 or 30 minutes will likely remain despondent forever.
Do remember to take a break after an hour or so. If you start feeling overwhelmed, itís time to focus on something else!
Taking a break is NOT the same thing as quitting. Sometimes you just need to step away from the intensity of change. Take a 10 - 20 minute power nap. Even a short break is enough to recharge your batteries, refresh your perspective and renew your commitment.
Keep measuring your progress and distance to the destination and see that youíre making REAL and SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS.
Remember that your perspective can often work against you, fooling you into believing that youíre never going to reach your destination. Look at how far you have come. Look at where the finish line is.
Create your own beneficial illusion. Think about the smaller outcome waiting just around the next corner. Report on your progress.
It's never an easy feeling watching others slough off while you are out making it happen.
Learn to trust yourself by completing what you set out to do.
