Going nowhere? Frustration setting in?
“You seem to have the key in the lock however the door will not open?”
…….you are stuck….. and probably confused how this has happened…right?
Let’s go back a few steps.
Once upon a time……. there was a point where things were going very well for you.
Unfortunately “this time” became lost. The big bad wolf in the shape of (fuzzy thoughts, distractions, excuses, poor planning) came into the picture. You see, Mr Wolf has some very poor attributes……for example,
- Fear producing
- Procrastination building
- Focus shattering
- mind numbing
- self esteem destroying
Getting “stuck” at various times is normal. The trick is to get unstuck as soon as possible…….otherwise ‘the above’ will devour you courtesy of Mr Wolf.
Firstly, we need to go back to the time when things were going well…….take a few moments and re live this time…..
What were you doing then? What was working? What was your attitude? Did you have goals and/or a Game Plan established?…..Yes?…No?…..Let’s review the following key points in order to get unstuck:
*Develop your Game Plan…..know your “moves”. This will allow you to stay in the game and plan your next play without hesitation. Your Game Plan is up to you. It can be as simple or as detailed as you wish. It can be a goal/series of, or a Roadmap. Either way, you have to have one.
*Have an Attitude of Confidence…..this will develop from knowing your game, what your capabilities are and going for the win…..whatever that may be for you…..the more “wins” the greater the confidence
*Bench the “fear”…..it doesn’t deserve to be in your game. More than likely, it is unfounded, it’s certainly unnecessary. There’s a lot of info on Fear out there, however can I suggest you take a look at this from Tess The Bold Life. It may be very helpful.
*Procrastination is a main “sticker” & can manifest in many ways including the fear of succeeding…..(it’s a subtle one), don’t be afraid of success. Succeeding builds self esteem and focus…..see, you can kill two birds with one stone. Procrastination can also evolve from too many inter weaving thoughts…..get clear, review your Game Plan, simplify if necessary.
*Excuses keep us in a state of denial(and they don’t cut it). Excuses keep us treading water…..they keep us stuck in ‘nowheresville’. Choose to eliminate your excuses & free yourself up. It will also keep the wolf from your door.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on getting “unstuck”. The points I covered here are by no means exhaustive though they are probably the most common. Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
Be good to yourselves
