Are you feeling stuck ?
If know what you want out of life but are having trouble staying motivated, I want you to know that there is NOTHING to feel ashamed about. We have ALL been stuck at some point in our lives. I am not here to beat you up but to help you out because I have been there.
I have felt stuck - personally and professionally - more often that I care to admit. Whether it was relationships, finances, career, or health, none of it felt good. Desire was not the problem; I did not want to stay where I was. My problem was that I did not know how to "unstick myself."
If that's where you are today, I want to encourage you to:
1. Come out of your cocoon.
2. Get around the right people.
Step out and find out.
When we are going through a hard time, it is natural for many of us to withdraw because we mistakenly believe that everyone is too busy to care. If your current circle has not provided level of support you need, have a conversation with them. They may not know how to best support you.
If after that conversation you still do not get what you need, it is time to expand your circle.
Your circle matters.
Like my featured success story Julie shared, changing for the better starts with a change of mind. This is often easier said than done because we are rarely in a position to make a major mindset shift on our own.
We must be around people that will challenge us to look at life and our ability to change differently. As Max Planck says, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
When you step out of your comfort zone, ask for and get the support you need, and open your mind to new ways of thinking, total transformation is not only possible but inevitable. I have never seen a problem that will not bow to patience and persistence.
So make me a promise okay? Scratch that, make yourself a promise that you will start taking action on this TODAY and never look back, okay? It doesn't have to be perfect, you just need to get started.
That's what Julie did. She took one step of faith and it changed everything.
Talk to your spouse.
Call a friend you haven't spoken to in a while.
Join a Meet Up group.
Make an appointment to see a counselor.
Reply and let me know how I can help.
It's time for a new beginning.
See you on the other side,
P.S. There are people who are ready, willing, and able to be that positive, affirming, voice but you have to step out of your cocoon to find them (or provide opportunities for them to find you). I would love to be that person for you.
