It’s the end of the quarter, but instead of feeling relieved, you feel swamped. 

Despite having a to-do list you can handle, new things keep getting added – you’re working overtime, dealing with unexpected problems, and feeling like you’re always falling behind. 

But what if you looked at this differently?

In this episode, Balazs W Kardos wraps up the first quarter with The Diamond Life Mentor Podcast’s 88,000 unique listeners and 160,000 all-time downloads, along with the updates in the past 90 days of 2024 as a mentor and business owner.

Even in the high-ticket business, he, too, faces obstacles and negativity as he lives the same human experience. You need to understand this equality and appreciate that things will turn again in a different direction. 

He also recommends resetting, reflecting, and detaching from the timeline. Think about how you’ve handled similar situations in the past. That identity is how you learned and grew from those experiences. Once you are grateful for your progress, it will give you the energy and motivation to keep going.

Did you finish a big project or learn a new skill? These achievements might seem small, but they’re proof of your growth. 

Track your numbers, especially each quarter, and use those data (whether in sales, expenses, investments, productivity, health, or nutrition) to compare and tweak your performance every time.

Feeling overwhelmed is normal. By taking breaks and consistently implementing what works for your identity, you will be stronger and more capable of new surprises in the future.

“You are relentlessly pursuing a better version of yourself. And if that’s true for you, smile, and give yourself grace because you deserve that.” – Balazs W Kardos
