Why Do I Feel So Overwhelmed?

With the rapid pace of life these days, and the constant advances in technology, is it any wonder that I often ask myself “Why do I feel so overwhelmed?” Overwhelm has become the new disease of the modern era.  

Many folks are running to therapists and taking numerous types of medication to combat this new villain, but there just may be a much simpler and far less expensive way to handle this.

 

 

What’s Wrong With Technology?

Since I have personally worked in and around technology for many years, I have been privileged to see both the pluses and the minuses of this worldwide industry. It has made life easier in so many ways, but at the same time, just like medications, it does definitely have it’s side effects as well.

It seems like every twenty plus (20+) years after a new invention in technology, we experience a higher level of stress in the general population. This started with the invention of the telephone, increased when cell phones became commonplace, and has taken a strong upward trend with social media.

What will stress levels and overwhelm be like in a few years when nearly the entire worldwide population has access to the net?

It really doesn’t have to be this way. Technology is a tool, like any modern appliance or hand tool which we have used. Is this tool in control of us, or are we in charge?

Like any tool, it pays to spend the time and effort in learning how to utilize it properly. There are no shortcuts when we desire to become good at something. When we utilize technology properly, overwhelm is not an issue.

 

There Is A Solution

When we are doing so many things at once, we do not do them well or efficiently.  We not only rush around like road runners, but we are so distracted, that we do not even recognize, and acknowledge when a job is completed and well done.  This merely results in a very unhappy existence, no matter what outward signs of success we achieve.

We are so busy sending emails and texts, making phone calls, holding a lot of meetings which are mostly unnecessary a large part of the time, that we have forgotten why we are doing all this to begin with. It really does not take very long for burn out and frustration to set in.

It can set in whether we accomplish our goals or not. It really doesn’t matter, because we are not really happy.

First we need to learn to slow down, and do one thing at a time as efficient as we can. We will not only get better results, but we will actually experience what we have been looking for all the time; just a little bit of joy, fulfillment and happiness.

Can we slow down? Of course we can!  It takes a little practice of observing ourselves, and making corrections along the way.

 

Take It Easy

When we take things slow and easy, we are more likely to enjoy the experience. By staying present and alert, we begin to notice when we get out of sorts.  Taking it Easy

Instead of ignoring this, or accepting it as the way it needs to be because it always has been since we can remember, let’s pay attention, and then allow ourselves the opportunity to choose.

Once we get tired enough of all the stress, frustration, and overwhelm, we will more inclined to choose a bit differently.

Thinking On Purpose

Over the years we have picked up so much garbage information from both well-meaning, and not so well-meaning sources, that we spend very little time thinking on purpose. Rather, most of our thoughts are generated accidentally, to a response of what is happening around or to us.  

This lack of purposeful thinking contributes greatly to our lack of results, and creates more problems and obstacles for us. When we spend the time to learn “how” to think, we give ourselves an enormous competitive advantage.

 

Competition

True competition is when we compete with ourselves, and not with others. It is more important to reach our own personal goals and track our progress over time, than worry about what others are doing and how we can surpass them.

When we are truly focused on improving our performance day-to-day, competition in the marketplace does not even exist for us. The only way that it can is if we focus on, or worry about it, and then we are actually creating our own competition by giving it value that it does not deserve.

This is a topic we can spend a lot of time on, but the key take away here is that what we focus on (give energy to) expands. It happens to be one of those universal laws, principles, or things which makes our world go round.

 

What Is Our Purpose?

To be able to think on purpose, it helps to know what our purpose is. We can have a different purpose for each project in which we are involved, but at the same time, each of us has an Overall Purpose which inspires us to do what we do. Discovering that purpose makes life a lot easier, and much more fun.

Our purpose is actually part of our uniqueness, as we then use our own individual gifts, abilities, and talents to fulfill that purpose. At this point, all of our thoughts and intentions are aligned, so that thinking on purpose becomes natural. If an accidental thought appears, it is immediately recognized, because it does not fit in.

The easiest way to discover our purpose is to spend some quiet time, and reflect on what is most important to us. Ideas will arise, and somewhere in there we will discover what our genuine reason for being here right this moment is.

Another way to do it is when you awaken in the morning, while still in that half-awake state, ask yourself the question: “what is my true purpose in life?” or “What do I most want to accomplish in this lifetime?”.  Then go about your regular routine, and at some point when you least expect it, you will get a revelation, as to what is most important to you to achieve in this lifetime.

This can also work by asking yourself before you go to sleep the same questions, and then you may get the answer upon awakening, or you may even dream about it.

 

Downhill or Uphill

It is much easier when riding a bike to be traveling downhill, rather then pumping those pedals up the hill. This is rather obvious.

But what is not so obvious is that we have the exact same situation in life. When we know what we desire, and that desire is in alignment with our True Purpose in life, then we are traveling downhill and picking up speed all the time.

On the other hand, when we allow ourselves to take random actions based on reacting to people and events in our lives, we are then putting in a lot of effort as we pedal uphill in life. The choice is ours, when we realize that we have this choice.

The Ultimate Power Tool

We all have the most amazing vehicle for success right within us. This ultimate power tool is our mind. Unfortunately, it does not come with a user manual, so we erroneously assume we know how to use it.  

When we assess the results we have achieved in each department of our lives, it is most likely evident that we are not all that proficient is using this powerful tool.

 

What’s the Score?

Just because we have a mind with which to think and process our every choice and decision, does not mean we are doing it correctly. Our scorecard is our results. Are we happy with the results which we are getting?

Since we were young, we have been taught all sorts of things from tying our shoes, riding a bike, learning to read, and even baking a cake, but the most important skill of all, we have never been taught, which is “how” to think.

We have certainly been instructed by our teachers, parents, the media, the government, and so called experts in every field in existence, “what” to think, but none or very little time in teaching us how to utilize this most potent device we possess.

It’s like we have this high-powered machine running wild, instead of supporting us in creating the life which we desire. Is it any wonder that when we add up our score (results), we quite often find ourselves below average.

 

 

Out of Control

When this is the case, we find ourselves out of control in many areas of our life, and blaming others and circumstances for our poor performance or lot in life. This is because it seems so real to us, that we are convinced that anyone else in our position would think the same about these circumstances.

And that is where the very Trap lies.

And that is a very good expression, because this “trap” actually is a lie which we have bought into. Unless we are able to break free and “externalize” our view on this, we will remain trapped.

We have “interiorized” this thought pattern or belief system to such an extent, that it has actually become a part of us. To let it go now, would be like cutting off a limb, which we are not very likely to do.

So our “out of control” lives make perfect sense to us, as well as all the reasons why.

 

 

Breaking Free

To get control of our lives so that we attain the results we desire requires us to examine, and then let go, many cherished beliefs and assumptions which we so dearly hold tight. We must dig down deep to discover what we really think about all aspects of life, and then question those ideas by asking “why”, and then letting them go if necessary.

Without learning how to use this power tool of ours, we will continue to take action based on false assumptions. And why are they false, because they do not bring us the results which we say that we want.

Taking action is easy, when we have a fully functioning power tool which is assessing things without any misconceptions, and then producing thoughts which results in constructive action.

There’s no doubt about it; this will be some of the hardest work we have ever done in our life. We have avoided this for years. Learning how to think is our greatest challenge, but once achieved, will serve us well for our entire lives.

The main differences between the Commercial and Personal options do make the Commercial option more appealing.

With the Personal option, you only get 30 renders per month, and unlimited usage rights on just personal videos.

There are a number of different template options. Once you select a template, you can then customize it. Different templates will give you different customization options.

In some of the templates, you can customize the title and text, along with some background colors. While in others, you can also add an image.

 

Price

There a re two license options– Viddyoze Personal and Viddyoze Commercial. The former is available for $47, while you can get the latter for $67.

The licenses for the Viddyoze 2.0 platform cost $77 and $97 respectively so you do get a better deal with Viddyoze 3.0

Template Club for $37/month or #347 /year

Final Thoughts

Although there are certainly some shortcomings with a relatively new company in this competitive marketplace, they have done well for only their third year in business.

Once they address some of the shortcomings, such as their processing speed, and add more templates, they should be a competitive force.

For those who are interested in creating production quality video content, this is certainly a viable choice.

Why Ask “Why” Questions

Not all that long ago in terms of time, we were much younger, and also much more inquisitive. We wouldn’t even consider discussing why ask “why” questions, because it was second nature to us, and we did it automatically.  

It is so true that we can learn much more about ourselves, and how to productively navigate through this world of ours, by observing young children, or even taking a walk in nature.

 

 

There Was A Time

There was a time, when we looked out into our world without all the many filters which are now so sturdily in place. Instead of a clear picture of reality, we now settle for the water downed version. This version has been, and is currently being interpreted, by our many perceptions, assumptions, and beliefs.
When we do this, we construct an invisible wall beyond which we cannot see. There can be wonderful opportunities in front and all around us, and we will be blind to them. This is so unfortunate.

By doing this, we are denying ourselves many rich experiences in all areas of our lives.

When we were young, like our little friend in the photo above, we were able to see unlimited possibilities and potential, and we were not afraid to ask “why?”. Also, we were willing to make mistakes, and keep on going.
We thought for ourselves in a natural way, without the constricting limits and barriers put in place by our later conditioning. Basically, we were free.

 

It’s Never Too Late

The good news is that it is never too late to break free from our self-imposed limitations. Yes, self-imposed, because whether it was conscious or unconscious, we still chose what to think and believe.

Actually, some of those beliefs did serve us well when we were young for survival reasons, like ‘don’t cross the street by yourself’, but just like this one, we have outgrown many of these beliefs, and it’s time to let them go.

We can be that little child again, with just a little inner work. This involves questioning our most precious assumptions when they come to mind, so that we make visible what we have taken for granted, those ideas and thoughts which are running our lives on an unconscious, automated basis.
Now we are learning how to think again, instead of continuing to accept what others think is real.

 

Keep Asking “Why”

Just like we used to drive our parents nuts by constantly questioning them by asking “why”, we can now drive ourselves sane, by asking ourselves “why” when our preconceived notions appear.

Asking ourselves “why” many times a day will slowly uncover some of these mechanisms which we forgot we accepted as real over these many years. Once they are exposed, we can then decide if they are helpful or not, and then choose to keep or release them.
Learning “how” to think, rather than “what” to think, is some of the hardest work we will ever do. At the same time, it is the most rewarding work we will ever do, as we reacquaint ourselves with our long-lost friend, the child who we used to be and really still are, and that child is most eager to come out and play.

 

Here’s “Why” I Chose This Online Business Platform to Create An Exciting and Profitable Adventure!

 

Stay focused and enjoy the Moment!

SEO Made Simple

For those of you who are currently doing some online marketing, as well as for those who would like to, I am going to talk briefly about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  Actually, SEO Made Simple will give you a jump start on this seemingly esoteric subject.

If you are not familiar with the term, it is a strategy used by people promoting and publicizing their businesses and websites, in order to increase the quantity and quality of traffic to their website through organic search engine results (free traffic).

 

Not That Mysterious

SEO is not nearly as mysterious and complicated as many make it out to be. Most probably, the ones who want it to seem this way are the folks who are selling their web promotion services. They don’t want you to know that you can learn to do at least some of this on your own pretty easily.

The main purpose of SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is to get more visitors to your website, and turn a percentage ot them into paying clients or customers.
Now, as I already mentioned, you can pay to have this done, as their are numerous people and companies offering this service all over the world. You can also take online and offline courses to learn about this as well, or simply buy a good book which explains it in detail.

Nevertheless, especially for people starting out and learning the basics of the online marketing world, it’s important to keep things simple, and learn just a few basic concepts, which will produce results.

 

Something You Can Learn and Apply Today

This is something which you can do, which will create some free traffic over time. While learning online marketing, it’s not necessary to spend money on paid ads until you have some sales coming in, and your business is beginning to flow. At that point, it makes sense to increase the momentum through paid advertising.

 

Here’s what you can do today…

This SEO technique is very simple to apply: A. Use a free Keyword Tool such as the Google Keyword Planner, (you need to first open a Google Adwords account) or Click on My Link on the Top of this Page, and find some low competition keywords. B. Then write up a number of blog posts about your website’s main subject matter. This will increase your ability to rank (which means free traffic). C. Then build some links to your site from other sites by guest posting (writing posts for other websites, and then linking back to your website).

This might seem a bit complicated but it is not, and you will learn a lot which will serve you well over time, and continue to increase your profits.

You will save a lot of time and money in the long run by learning some basic SEO strategies.

Give this a try, as over time I will be writing about more internet marketing techniques which can be easily learned and applied.

My whole intention here is to help people who want to learn how to make money online providing products and/or services of value in a way which is not complicated at all. This is most definitely something you can learn to do if you desire it.

 

Here’s a short video to explain even more how to set your website up in a favorable way for search engines.  Click on the image below.

My major issue with this program is the history and background on Chris Record. I would suggest doing your own research on his past business endeavors prior to joining this program.
