An all-too-common theme is woven into many of my one-on-one client sessions. They all (in one way or another) say the same things that we’ve all felt from time to time.
“I feel like my life isn’t going anywhere. I feel stuck.”
Have you ever uttered these words? If so, this video is definitely for you. In it, you will discover My Top 3 Tips that you can begin today that will definitely get your life not only moving, but moving in the right direction.
For those of you that just want the bullet points, here are your…
You’re welcome. 😉
There are many different ways that you can become “stuck” in your life, but essentially, when you strip away all of the fluff, you are left with two main triggers:
Fear or Depression
I’ve made a list of 3 simple steps that will help you get beyond the stickiness in your life. Depending on which trigger you’re dealing with (fear or depression) will determine how you maneuver through each of these steps.
1. Make a To-Do List
We are much more motivated to do things when we have them in writing.
If fear has you feeling overwhelmed with what the next step in your life you should take, a to-do list will come in handy. It will essentially give you a manageable map of how to get from Point A to Point B, thus making each step more doable.
If depression is what is holding you back, this simple idea of a to-do list will give you something to focus on. This will begin to shift your frame of thinking away from “I am stuck” to a much healthier “What is the next thing on my list?”.
2. Take Baby Steps
Remember, a baby step is still a step!
Fear-based stuckness will benefit from taking baby steps, because the path will seem much more possible.
Depression-based stuckness will benefit from taking baby steps because when you’re in that state of mind, it’s difficult to comprehend even the most basic of tasks.
3. Start a Gratitude Journal
At the end of the day, write down 5 things that you are grateful for. You don’t need to go in to great detail, just write down things that made you smile that day, or things that made you feel good.
As the amazing Tony Robbins says, “You can’t be fearful and grateful at the same time”. As long as you are focusing on being grateful for the obstacles in front of you, the fear melts away.
The same thing goes for depression. Depression is essentially “a lack of hope”. From that definition, we conclude “You can’t be hopeless and grateful at the same time.” In other words, focusing on all that you have, melts away the feelings of hopelessness.
Begin doing all of these steps today, even if you only commit to doing it for a week. Trust me, in that short amount of time, you will begin to see your life magically move in the right direction.
