Today is the 9th day in the year 2019, are you already beginning to feel overwhelmed by your 2019 goals?  Are you already thinking your goals are too big and you might not achieve them, hey…. relax and grab a chair.

Some days ago, I spoke to a senior friend on how busy the year has been for me, sincerely, I didn’t envisage it will be like this. After our discussion, I realized that it was the same for him too. In the corner of my mind, I know I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed already about the whole work thing, but believe me, it’s pointless. Hence in this post, I will share with you some of the things I have learned to do in order not to feel overwhelmed by my 2019 goals. It sure will be of great help to you.

Break down your big goal into smaller goals

Let me tell you something about myself. Plenty of food scares me! It usually feels like an insurmountable mountain to me, so what I do is to eat in bits. This way, I deal with that fear (I am not a foodie oo). But what I learned from this is, when you have a big goal to crash, instead of feeling overwhelmed, break it into smaller bits. It can be daily, weekly or even monthly. This post, how to set monthly goals, explains this further.

Take it a step at a time

Hey, don’t kill yourself by doing everything at a time, schedule your broken down goals and take them a step at a time. This simple practice will help you not to feel overwhelmed. Do things daily, do things one step at a time, do not crush yourself by doing it all at once. Little drops of water make a mighty ocean.

Encourage yourself

This is a brain work you need to learn and keep doing this year. Instead of feeling overwhelmed with your dreams, appreciate the efforts you are making. Encourage yourself even if others won’t. That’s the way to truly live your dreams and achieve your goals.

In Conclusion

I hope this post helped you by taking away that self-imposed burden of feeling overwhelmed. I really would love to hear from you how it helped you. Hey, hit the comment section of this post, or send me a mail:  and don’t forget to share this post with your friends.
