Have you ever been with a group of friends where the conversation went something like this?
My life is nothing like I thought it would be at this point.
I have no idea what I’m doing.
I need a change, but I don’t know what that change should be.
I can’t seem to get motivated.
Feeling stuck? Like you’re spinning your wheels and getting nowhere? The truth is, most people feel that way at some point in their lives. The trick is to figure out how to get UN-stuck.
The good news is you already have a secret weapon: you. You already possess all the power you need to get unstuck and empower yourself to live the life you want.
I am going to give you three keys to use as a springboard to becoming unstuck.
1. Shed those fears and doubts.
Too often we let our inner voices control the dialogue, and what they have to say is almost always negative. Learn to silence that inner voice and look at the bright side of things. Instead of telling yourself it’s too hard to lose that weight, picture yourself in a great new outfit once you have lost the weight and imagine how you’ll feel. Maybe you’ve always wanted to write a book but found a thousand excuses not to. So, shed the doubts and sit down and write! Perhaps you’ve wished that you could spend more time with your kids, but you have SO much to do. So, schedule it in your to-dos. That might sound harsh or blunt, but if it reminds you to stop what you’re doing or shift around some things to connect with your family, it will have been worth it. Shed the doubt that you don’t have time.
2. Set Specific Goals
Get really clear about what it is you want. Losing weight? How many pounds and by what date? Writing a book? Set a daily word count goal. 1,000 words a day? 500? Completed first draft by what date? Spending more time with your kids? Schedule the first hour after school as “protected time” with just them? After all, being at the crossroads in their lives is the most important goal of all!
3. Take the First Step
Don’t put it off until someday because someday never comes. Take that first step today. Right now.
You know the famous saying:
Thoughts become words
Words become actions
Actions become habits
Habits become character
Character becomes destiny.
You can do this. Shed your fears, set a goal, and take action today! In doing so, you’ll dig yourself out of that rut and maybe even change your destiny!
