How to Get UnStuck

How to Get UnStuck

The first step in getting unstuck is to recognize that you are stuck.  It happens to us all.  The worse thing feeling in the world is when you think it is just you and you don’t know your why or your how. There are many reasons we get discouraged and lose our motivation.

It can happen at any age or stage of life. Do you still dream?

Dreams are what fuel us. When we don’t have any daily motivation to drive us, we become bored or worse. Once we become stagnant, we get regretful.  We get angry.  We get stuck.  You could be incredibly talented, have the best contacts, and have a ton of experience, but they aren’t going to do you any good if you aren’t using them. One of the things I want to introduce on this podcast and blog is to occasionally introduce to some something you have heard of but may have never tried.

One of the ways you can stay active mentally, stay fresh is to learn and try new things.

Some of us are struggling with the feeling of being overwhelmed.  You re doing things without a purpose or a end game.  Stop and see where your current path is going to take you when you reach it.  We struggle with this issue because we know we are supposed to do something, but the what has us puzzled.  When your life is out of focus, your internal engine shuts down.  You lose your mojo.  You stop caring.

The longer you put something off, the harder it is to get it done? That’s because inaction fuels procrastination. It comes down to the way our minds work. Our minds aren’t designed to coast.

You will miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take. 

Over time, all of us lose our desire to try new things.  Over time we become complacent and fearful of failure.  Over time we become stagnant.  Even fresh water starts to stink after a while if it just sits there. Once we become stagnant, we get regretful.  We get angry.  We get stuck.  You could be incredibly talented, have the best contacts, and have a ton of experience, but they aren’t going to do you any good if you aren’t using them.

We live in the greatest time in human history.  You can take your talent or the gift you are blessed with to do anything.  You can choose to stay or move out of your current condition. We lack the motivation to do more than just exist.  Without motivation, your talent is useless.

We still fall short of living our best lives in a time of plenty.  We still are plagued personally by arrogance, greed, lust, envy, over-indulgence, aggression and laziness.  That laziness is some of the cause of our misery. For too many of us we have so much that we do nothing.

There is no fast fix.  We gradually got stuck so you have to work with the same persistence to get out. You need to clarify your priorities.  You can start by focusing on where you want to go, who you want to be, and what gets you excited.

Think about where you are.  Pick a small goal that is achievable and move.  You want something that you can do now to get started.  Take advantage of your energy and excitement and use it to propel you forward one step at a time.

No one likes rejection.  To succeed you must see rejection as an opportunity to learn, adjust, and improve.  The stuff we can do easily is rarely appreciated by us.  To grow you have to stress or push that muscle.  Past failures, disappointments, and losses can be really hard to deal with.  They can be reminders instead of motivators.  Those reminders come from others that have pushed through.  This is when being around positive, successful and others like you helps.

Don’t settle for low hanging fruit.  Stretch yourself.  There will always be risk involved when you’re going for something big.  This has been my personal issue most of my life.  I achieve my goals only to realize it was too small.

When we notice we are stuck, it is often at a crisis point.
