I started my own business as a sophomore in college. I was a successful christian recording artist. My songs made it to the top 10 on local radio -back when radio was still the thing. My version of success in the music business was great: my calendar was full and my CD was selling.   My career was totally taking off except for one small detail: I was making myself sick physically and psychologically losing steam.
Maybe you’re in this same spot: gaining a certain level of success but you’re overworked and overwhelmed wondering how you got here in the first place.
Here’s the problem: We stretch ourselves too thin! We have too many commitments or too much busyness and not sure where we are going. You’ve heard it said:

“Activity does not always equal Productivity.”

I wanted to do WAY more than I could manage. Honestly, I lost sight of my purpose.  What started out as a dream of doing something I loved ended up turning into a royal mess. I took on being my own manager, doing my own PR and distribution. None of which I had a clue about how to do. On top of all of that, the worst thing was owing my parents thousands of dollars. I had definitely bitten off more than I could chew! It’s what I call sacrificing your sanity.
Have you ever been in a similar situation?
Have you lost sight of your purpose?
Have you started out  with a dream of doing something worthy and worthwhile but are running yourself into the ground?
