Feeling Overwhelmed

Last Update: January 20, 2018

I’ve been trying to complete the trains, find affiliate networks or programs, and write content. I believe somebody has been there before me!

What suggestions do you have?


Thanks.

You can do it Michael!! You are not the first, only or last one to feel overwhelmed but just keep it simple and follow Kyle's great advice below... step by step. ~Mark

The great thing I have found in my short time here is your never alone. This community is great about getting behind you and wanting you to succeed as well.

I run into a lot of the same issues myself. I have to keep myself more organized and take a lot of notes. I can tend to be scatterbrained at times. I also make a schedule of things I want to today, this week, this month, etc. I do not beat myself up if I do not get it all done or figure it all out in that time, I just work it back into the schedule.

When I feel bogged down and can't think clearly. I go chat with other members. Sometimes just walk away completely and try not to think about it for a minute.

I have seen others that have joined after me finish certification already. I have not. I am ok with that. I am moving at my pace and feeling productive doing it that way.

I go back over things that I have already seen and make sure I got it right and I am happy with it. I set one day a week aside just to review what I did the week before.

Feeling overwhelmed just means you have a strong desire to achieve. If you can put that into pace with the program and make it fit you, it will equal great success.

Best of luck!

Don't worry as you can see many of us feel from time to time the same way.
I just keep asking for help, one question after the other until I get something that works, and it is not a race, some things you get the hang of quickly some take more time.
Be specific in stating your problem, that way you will get quicker and better answers to your queries
Smile and have a great day

Thanks Geoff.
My thing is one thing rolls in to another and they all become intertwined.

Thanks again

Newmayberry is right, sometimes it is better to leave the problem for a bit and tackle it later, I don't know how many times I had to go back a lesson or two and review it then move on to a new lesson
You will get there my friend.. If not today, tomorrow who cares

I'm right there with you, man. Overwhelmed, frustrated, and a general feeling of wanting to give up. It is hard to stay focused and on track all the time. Just do your best and go at your own pace. Keep pressing forward and don't quit.

Make it a great day!

Take a deep breath and keep on keepin' on--I know the feeling, but first and foremost believe in yourself--my training is way behind, but the beautiful thing is the fact that we can work at our own pace!

This is common, Michael! I posted a similar blog at about the same time in as you called "Perplexed and Overwhelmed".

You've received some good advice so far. One step at a time and do stick with the training, even if it seems slow. Every step we are asked to complete tasks which slows us down compared to just taking in information. But it is important to do it that way so we really learn what we're being taught.

You're not alone.

All the best to you and keep us posted on your progress!

Hi Bob! I was just reading you bio. Very interesting. Your motto got wheels turning on content!

Awesome! You never know where inspiration will strike.
Hope you're feeling a little better. Being overwhelmed will come and go and become less and less as you learn.
Take care,

Can I use your motto?

I do use it as categories on my website where each represents a blog category, three blogs in all dealing with quality of life issues. I would prefer you wouldn't "copy-cat" my tri-blog website format or use any of those particular blog ideas.
Having said that, the motto is not copyrighted as far as I know so you could use it.
Do you have a particular blog idea cooking?

I can understand how you feel. I would recommend breaking it up into smaller steps so its less overwhelming. Complete each lesson and simply focus on completeing the tasks in each lesson then move on to the next lesson.

Thanks Barry,
Maybe it’s just me. When I’m focusing on one thing, my mind says I need to be focused somewhere else if that makes any sense.

I call it 'Information Overload'. It can blow your brains clean out... The only way to do it is to take it step by step, and let things sink in a bit...

Hey James,
That is exactly what it feels like.
Thanks..

It's pretty common here. Just don't give up...even if you manage just a little bit of progress every time.

Try to break up your day into blocks. So if you have 8 hours you can devote each day, spend 2 hours training, 2 hours working on lining up affiliate networks, 2 hours writing content, and 2 hours on your site design. You'll accomplish a great deal without getting burned out or bored in one area. Hope this helps! :-)

Thanks.
That helps. I start one place which leads to another. Then I’m in the middle of somewhere with numerous tabs opened!

Hey you just described where I was going
wrong as well! An idea pops into my head and
I leave what I'm doing and end up with a pile
of unfinished stuff.

I've started to divide my time into slots where I
work on one thing only. I keep a notebook next
to me so if I have some great idea pop into
my head I note it down for later rather than
leaving what I'm working on.
