How to Avoid Burnout: 3 Ways Successful People Conquer Burnout

Do you ever find yourself feeling really stressed or overwhelmed from all the work that keeps on piling up?

The stress is getting to you, and some days you end up feeling really burnt out and unable to perform.

If this is something that resonates, I want you to realize you're not alone. As high achievers this is our kryptonite. We're able to accomplish things that most people can't, but sometimes we push too hard, and wake up the next day not feeling as sharp as usual.

Benjamin Franklin once said: “give me six hours to chop down the tree and I’ll spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

Would you agree that sometimes, you forget to stop and sharpen your axe? And as a result it is getting blunt.

That's why today I’m going to share the mindset shifts that you must adopt, in order to approach your work and success like the world’s top 1%. Even though they are handling an extreme amount of pressure and workload, they're able to perform at a high level every single day.

It's all down to the way they're approaching their life, so be sure to pay close attention to what I’m sharing today.

When you learn the answers to these questions and more, you’ll realise what you need to do in order to stop being burnt out so often—if at all:

  • How can you use stress to help you perform at your highest level?
  • Why is the life of world class athletes similar to that of entrepreneurs?
  • How can the careers of Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates help you?
  • Why is the way diamonds are physically created a great example for entrepreneurs?
  • When does the biggest growth in your life take place—at work or leisure?
  • Why can a gadget measuring sleep be your best friend?
  • What should you say no to if you want to succeed? 

I hope you found today's video helpful. Here's a quick bonus tip: plan tomorrow today! Make this a habit in your life, it will totally change the game for you. Do it every single evening, don’t just wake up and wonder what you’re meant to do today. That means you're just reacting and if you're reacting, you're going to burn out because you're not focusing on what matters to you.
