Top Performers Are Prone to Feeling Stressed and Overwhelmed

October 15, 2016

I don’t know about you but sometimes at the end of a day you may feel like the picture above. I was talking to some of my friends recently and they were asking me some questions that I thought may be of interest to you.

Q1 – How do you know when you are experiencing professional burnout?

This often is experienced by the person as an emotional or mental exhaustion combined with doubts and limitations about your competence and the value of your work.

Q2 – What are the symptoms of stress?

There are numerous emotional and physical disorders that have been linked to stress including depression, anxiety, heart attacks, stroke, hypertension, immune system disturbances that increase susceptibility to infections and having a low immune system.

Some other physical indicators can be:

1.     Lack of energy and feeling exhausted and overwhelmed.

2.     Unable to make important decisive decisions

3.     Abrupt communication style that is unapproachable

4.     Feeling like there is no light at the end of the tunnel

5.     Feeling like everyone wants something from you and you have no time for yourself

So the conversation went on from that and we started to talk about my role as an executive coach and how a lot of people just simply don’t like to ask for support or help. You know the lone ranger style of person who just tries to work through it. Sometimes you just need someone who will listen to you and ask those questions that will enable you to explore your own options and encourage you to take those steps that at the time seems scary.  Often my clients say that they wish that they had come to be earlier instead of going through this yourself.

Here is a quote that I wanted to share with you

“Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make. You don’t have to go at it alone.

If I can help you just pick up the phone and have a quick chat.
