4 Proven Strategies for Beating Burn-Out

As entrepreneurs, it is easy to always be on the clock. In addition to a cycle of constant creating, there are many other aspects of running a business that has to be tended to -- by you. Often times, these administrative tasks become more of the focus than the actual creative part of your business that brings you passion. There’s so much that goes into running a business, beyond just the actual product or service you are selling that it’s no surprise that we run into burnout.

When you add in full time jobs, children, families and or other responsibilities to the mix there are can be a lot of demands on “a little bit of time.” Naturally, with all of these demands, it makes sense that over exertion would catch up to you. While it’s true that lack of downtime can lead to burn out, that is often the symptom and not the root. The real cause is a little deeper than that.

What Story Are You Telling Yourself?

When you sit back and look at the motives behind why you do what you do -- the short answer is the same -- *cue Drake & Trey* "I just want to be successful"

Pretty much? We want to be successful. Whether it's as the smart and savvy business person, the transformational coach, the best selling author, or the most amazingly talented whatever. We believe, this identity, this goal, this feat is the ticket.

And it's not.

The problem is it takes more than wanting success to get it. It even takes more than "thinking" you know how you are going to get it (career field included). The hard work and daily grind is only half the battle. Your mindset is the other part. It's really that deep. @@No matter how hard you work, you can not out hustle a lack mindset.@@ You will eventually have to tackle and master what's in your head.
