GETTING UNSTUCK + GETTING INTO ACTION
WHY BEING STUCK CAN BE A GOOD THING + 3 TIPS TO GET UNSTUCK
Do you ever feel like your life is at a standstill? Do you feel like you’re in a rut, or making no progress? You know you want nice things, want to be successful, want to make an impact, and want a big income as a result of that, but you almost feel paralyzed, because you don’t know how to take action.
Welcome to my life not all that long ago! This is exactly how I felt about 6-8 months ago in my life & business. I know how frustrating this feeling can be, and I want you to know you’re not alone, sister!
During this time, I really felt like something was missing. I had a business that I was happy with, but I didn’t feel like I was using my full potential and making the impact I desired to. I knew there were more people I could be helping, and showing them how to create a life & business they LOVE, but I just wasn’t sure how to reach them.
This feeling totally paralyzed me. I stopped taking action in my business because I just felt SO overwhelmed and didn’t even know where to start. In return, this would make me feel guilty and became a negative cycle of overwhelm + shame.
Eventually I decided enough was enough. I didn’t want to waste any more time feeling sorry for myself. I truly believed I was meant for big things, I just needed a little push…so I hired a coach. Having a coach hold me accountable made a WORLD of a difference and allowed me to make so much progress in a short period of time.
GETTING STUCK CAN ACTUALLY BE A GOOD THING
You might be thinking WTF after reading that headline, but hear me out.
If you’re feeling stuck, paralyzed, or just really confused, it probably means you’re ready for change. These feelings are little hints from the Universe telling you to shake things up a little and do something different!
When you decide to get into action (instead of letting yourself dwell), you begin to create that change you’ve been needing & allow the Universe to do its thang.
HOW TO GET UNSTUCK + GET INTO ACTION
ONE: CHANGE YOUR DAILY ROUTINE
John C. Maxwell says it best, “You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
Look at what your daily routine consists of. Think of what really makes you happy in your daily routine, and what does not. Make a list of the following:
1) things you’re doing that you actually enjoy
2) things you’re doing that don’t bring you any joy or happiness
3) things you’re not doing, that you should be doing to bring you success
I’m going to say this loud & clear… stop doing sh*t you hate. If it doesn't make you feel good, or bing you any happiness, stop doing it. The way to success is DEF NOT by doing things you don’t enjoy. Instead, replace these things with the activities you SHOULD be doing (but you’re currently not), to bring you success.
TWO: GET YOUR MINDSET IN CHECK
Have you been saying really negative things to yourself lately? Phrases like, “I can’t,” “I’ll try,” or “I hope,” keep us in the lack mentality and keep us feeling down & stuck. When you switch it up and start using phrases like “I will,” “I am,” and “I’m going to,” you take on the abundance mentality. These positive phrases also immediately make us feel better.
Let go of your limiting beliefs and create new, empowering beliefs for yourself.
Make a list of three limiting beliefs you have, then scratch them out and write out your new positive beliefs. Remember to use abundant language when writing out the positive beliefs!
THREE: BE OPEN TO HINTS FROM THE UNIVERSE
Being stuck is usually a sign that you’re about to experience change. When you’re feeling this way, make sure you stay open to receiving little hints, or messages from the Universe, as they will guide you in the right direction.
Meditation is a great way to receive guidance from the Universe. Start meditating for 5 minutes a day and take note of any thoughts, or messages that come up. Explore any gut feelings you have and what feels right to you.
No one likes the feeling of being stuck, and usually it brings up some resistance. Start to embrace your feelings of being stuck because it means change is ahead of you! You are about to experience some big shifts & should welcome that with open arms!
love + abundance,
