Fatal Mistakes People Make When Facing a Burnout

For Many People, Burnout is a Reality.

Here are some mistakes that can make dealing with Burnout so much harder.

#1 – Not taking the situation seriously.

  • People assume that they are stronger than this “Burnout” business and that they don’t need help.
  • Assuming that the situation will improve on its own, without needing any actions or changes.
  • Burnout is a serious process terminating in the person being totally exhausted, without physical, mental or emotional energy left. Ignoring the situation will not resolve the issue.

#2 – Failure to educate themselves about Burnout.

  • People assume that being burnout can be solved with a good night sleep. A burned out person will need weeks if not months to be able to fully recover and during that time, they will not be able to function at their optimal capacity.
  • Burnout is a serious all encompassing process which involves the whole person, its physical, mental and emotional strength. It will take time to rebuild the person.

#3 – Failure to seek help soon enough.

  • People assume that Burnout is a fancy construction and that only the weak suffer from it. It does not apply to them.
  • People hope that by pushing long and hard enough at a situation, it will resolve on its own. The longer they delay seeking out help, the longer it will take for them to fully recover.
  • Burnout is a serious problem that can not be left unattended, as it will only worsen.

#4 – Relying on family and friends, rather than a trained and objective person to help.

  • People turn naturally toward family and friends, people they trust to seek help.
  • Not relying on an objective and trained professional to guide them out of a difficult situation .

#5 – Failure to choose an expert.

  • Failing to recognize the seriousness of the situation mean that people tend to turn to generalists when seeking out help.
  • A non specialist help will take longer for the intervention to work.
  • An expert will know exactly where the person is at and what are the steps necessary to get the best results sooner.

#6 – Relying on Convenience.

  • When people are seeking help, they want it fast. They will choose convenience, access or price as a decision factor.
  • People around you may know of Burnout and will give you their well meaning advice. But may not be effective in your personal situation.
  • Price or location should not be a deciding factor, as only expertise and track record in Burnout should be at the forefront of any decision process.

Burnout is serious – Treat it that way!
