What causes burnout ?
People suffer from burnout from different reasons. Today guys we are going to discuss the most common causes.
1. The Wrong Job
This is the most common cause of burnout. If you’re not doing what you love. If you dread being a blogger you don’t have passion for this job it might not be for you.
This doesn’t mean you’re a failure. You just don’t like blogging with a passion it’s the wrong job. You came online to escape the ratrace but it’s not as easy as you thought it would be.
2. The Wrong Niche
Another cause of burnout is being in the wrong niche.
Maybe you picked the right business model but it’s in a niche that doesn’t inspire you guys it’s likely you will suffer from burnout or walk totally away.
Since I have been blogging I have seen tons of bloggers just walk away with no explanation.
3. Not Informed Enough
Yes life ain’t fair. You’re a smart guy but that guy’s smarter than you.
Yep admit it. You even watch your favorite marketers to see what they do but that just doesn’t click for you.
We always feel we need to learn more about the latest and greatest technique instead of sticking to wha’s working for you. Stay in your lane.
Of course you want to broaden your skills and knowledge, but don’t keep buying info product after info product.
Now guys if you’re really struggling you can always hire a mentor to kickstart your blog or business. (as long as you can afford it.) I’ve heard about a couple great coaches.

4. Trying To Do Too Much
This can definitely lead to burnout. If you’re new to blogging you probably can’t afford to outsource a lot of daily task So,downsize and stop things that aren’t working. Manage your time better.
Remember guys once you have a reliable cash flow then outsourcing is a huge way to expand your business. You want be able to reach the level you want on your own without feeling burned out.
5.Stick to Your Strengths
Guys you might wonder how can this lead to burnout . Simply if you are focusing on things you’re not good at it will take your mental energy. Anything you aren’t great at outsource it with an expert in the field.
Spend time figuring out what your strengths are and work with these. Guys remember it makes sense to work your strengths then spending all your energy and valuable time working on your weaknesses
6. Networking the Wrong Way
You need to network and get to know other people in your field. Find possible clients and partners.
There’s a fine balance between being inspired by others taking action to create your own success or simply watching their success until until it brings you down.
Remember guys they put in a lot of long hours and hard work to get where they are today. If you take action and do the same you can have similar results or better. However breathe deep and take timely breaks or it will lead to burnouts.
7. Not Planning Ahead
As a newbie this was a huge fault of mine. This is an area where many newbies fail. It can lead to burnout because if you don’t spend time making weekly plans you will end up wasting time each day trying to figure out what you should be doing. Soon this can frustrate you and you will make very little progress.
Guys sit down and define your weekly and monthly goals. Check your daily schedule and focus on it and follow it. Also on Sunday look over your weekly schedule and your weekly plans,do it for you! This is your business. Act like it. Work harder for yourself than anybody.
Just remember even the best plans are bound to change and working online means you have flexibility to change them if needed.
Make plans they will help with your productivity and reduce feelings of burnout.
