“I need to find creative diversity because if I get stuck, I get unhappy.” – Jill Scott
The year has just begun do you feel you hit a plateau in life? Do you feel like you’re going through a phase that lacks significant progress? Are you still trying to figure out what to do with your life?
Some people refer to this as being “stuck in a rut.” I just call it stuck. And once identified, sometimes it’s a mystery how to get unstuck. Your lackluster outlook might have you encountering a sense of “blah” not happy or depressed just not content and craving something different. You might also feel exhausted, off-track, unmotivated or worried. All of those are normal experiences that you may not give much thought to when you’re at your best, but every once in a while these unwelcome little obstacles catch up, and it’s a struggle to move forward. So what do you do to get unstuck?
My number one job as a Leader is supporting people as they move forward, primarily because they’re stuck, stuck in jobs, relationships, health and more. So here are some ways to help you get out of a rut:
Face your fears- What exactly is stopping you from moving forward?
Define your goals – run a vision board workshop at the change of every season because one vision board per lifetime (or year, even) is never enough.
Set a reward for breakthroughs –Determine short-term milestones and rewards. What are your turning points?
Once you apply these steps above you will have a sense of direction. You will break significant barriers and become unstuck making new achievements. Take one step at a time.. to come out of the rut you’re in. #StartByResettingYourThinking
