Feeling Burned Out? 5 Easy Ways to Get Motivated 

We’ve all been there. For months—even years—you’ve been toiling away on your new startup hoping to change the world. You know the drill: sleepless nights, take-out dinners, and lack of money and personal life. The lifestyle has been glamorized in movies and countless success stories of entrepreneurs reaching the payouts

People are encouraged that this is the path to success. But as time goes on, the long hours add up, and depression, anxiety, and fatigue set in. You hit a wall. You burnout.

Is YOUR "Perception" keeping you from experiencing a  life with less stress, frustration, anger, disappointments, etc.? 

Your perception is your own understanding or thinking about a situation or thing.  It is NOT real or a reality.  Be mindful of this and you will start to see others in a different light.  Knowing that they too have their own perception.

I teach people concepts that help to open their thinking and to help them see how they truly must own where they are in life and how they can change their direction, by applying strategies to identify false beliefs and take steps to achieving a higher level of understanding.

Go out today and consider if YOUR perception is keeping you from better relationships, or moving towards your goals!

Sunday reading! (book chapter)
I know we have David A's read on the way, but this has been on my mind for a while...

Here is a chapter from a book I wrote 12 years back, and published about 3 ago: http://martinsherv.com/i5
It is based on this book (quick video on this page) http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674004146
It covers the ways we 'hold ourself' together using defense mechanisms, or 'adaptations' - everything from repression to humour (yeah! got my u back!).
It is a long read, and I would approach it all very differently now, but I would be holding back if this wasn't a key pillar to how I view the world.
Have a skim. See whether you can spot the adaptations in yourself and others, M
