Overwhelmed? Here is the Answer


Today you have a problem – a person or situation that does not work for you.


You feel overwhelmed.


Use my “AAA Formula” – Acceptance, Attitude and Action.


1. ACCEPT what is - the person or situation that is upsetting you. “I accept _______.”


2. Have an ATTITUDE of, “I take 100% responsibility for this relationship, situation”.


Not taking 100%? You are handing over control of your emotions to others.


You are saying, “THEY (or the situation) made me unhappy.”


Be aware: the person or situation did not make you unhappy.


You made yourself unhappy with your thinking about them, or the situation.


3. Take positive ACTION to resolve the situation:


Ask, “What is another, better possibility here?”


What is the best outcome?


Then act on what you can change.


Steps to re-frame and get back in control; AAAAcceptance, Attitude and Action:


1. Accept the person, or the situation. It is what it is in this moment.


2. Attitude = 100% responsible = empowered: positive, taking actions and owning results.


3. Act positively. The person or situation will only change when YOU change.


Take the most powerful action, with a positive 100% attitude and own your results.


Now you are back in control.


This is your way out of overwhelm.
