Are You Running on Empty?
Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor
Things I used to think, feel and do before I saw what I see now!
I used to think that if I could just carry on and continue doing all the things for all the people, somehow everything would figure itself out. And every time, I'd be surprised when I'd burnout.
I was at the petrol station the other day and it prompted me to think of this analogy that I'm going to share with you:
If your car was running low on petrol, and you couldn't afford to put any more petrol in, you wouldn't just keep running the car and hope the fuel magically appears.
You would prioritise how you use the remaining fuel. You'd keep the fuel for the most important errands for that day - and maybe keep a bit of fuel in the tank just in case of any emergency that you might need to use it for.
But you wouldn't just assume that the fuel is going to magically appear if you don't put it in!
It's the same with our bodies and our minds.
We don't have limitless energy to give - we need to replace and replenish our energy.
I used to keep going and ignore the signs my body was telling me that I needed to rest and recharge, hoping that it would go away. I'd think that if I just continued to do do do all the time, eventually something would give.
It was always my mind and body that would give. I would be ill and be in bed and not able to function. I'd be burned out.
If we don't put petrol in our car and kept driving and driving, it will stop because it doesn't have any energy left.
This is your reminder to prioritise where you're using your energy and your fuel, because we don't have endless amounts.
This is particularly for you right now if you're struggling at the moment: see that as even more reason to prioritise your fuel.

Are we overcomplicating mental health?
The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all!
Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief.
Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
