Getting Unstuck, here's how...
If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me how to get unstuck I'd be rich.... Here's what I tell them ...
We’ve all been there. You may be there right now. You know that place in life where things aren’t terrible (or maybe they are), but nonetheless, you’re juggling everything, you're on the hamster wheel of life and just feel like no matter what you do you can't move forward!
You feel frustrated
You feel angry
You feel stuck
This journey isn't always easy. Here are my 3 tips to get unstuck fast!
1. Create Space
Creating space mentally is where I'm coming from.
This can mean de-cluttering in your work area and your mind.
We can't keep consuming as it fills up all of our mental space and creates overwhelm. Start by unsubscribing from those emails you never read, give yourself time limits in socials and compkete an audit of how you spend your time! This will surprise you!
Then add in mindfulness and meditation. These are skills that we should all have in our tool boxes and this is where you should start. Now before you get scared off by what you think these terms mean, know in this day and age mindfulness and meditation practices are very accessible and not as woo woo as you may have been thinking. With videos on YouTube and apps like Headspace, you can learn to meditate and be more mindful in as little as 3 minutes a day!
As you become more conscious about your consumptiin of information and consistent at mindfulness and meditation practices, you’ll notice things around you begin to change. You’re internal perspective and perception around what life throws at you is what changes.
2. Acknowledge & Release
Swamped by debt?
Unhappy in your job?
In a relationship that has grown stagnant and stale?
Whatever your current situation is acknowledge it. Let me be clear, acknowledging something in your present environment does not mean you're accepting it. Acknowledgment means you are no longer resisting the situation it means you are aware of it. When you are aware you can do something, take action.
Yes, you are in debt!
Yes, you have a sh!t job!
Yes, you are in a relationship that doesn’t seem to have a future!
Ok, now let all of that go.
Remember where you’re currently at does not determine your future. It just happens to be where you’re at in the present moment.
Getting your power back is what is important. Knowing you have a situation that you know exists gives you the momentum that you need to create change in the next step.
3. Get Clear
Lack of progress is often a reflection of a lack of clarity. Where do you want to go? I have seen many clients start a million things but never make a clear plan of what they plan to do. This scattergun approach usually ends in frustration, anger, and feeling stuck all over again!
Stop doing that.
Don’t start a million things. Stop looking for shiny objects!
Getting unstuck means that you are going to get really clear about what you want.
Do you want to lose weight? Get clear about the type of healthy lifestyle you want to lead;
Want to start a successful business? Get clear about the type of business you want to start. Get clear on how you define success;
Want a fulfilling relationship? Get clear on what you do and don’t want in a future partner. Get clear in your boundaries.
These steps may seem simple and they are. However simple doesn’t necessarily mean easy. Take a few minutes and jot down some things you can do for each step. How can you create space? What do you need to acknowledge and release? What can you get clear about?
