Maybe Being Stuck Is Far Easier Than Being Unstuck, Is It?

I remember when I was feeling stuck in my life many many years ago, all I wanted to do was to stay at home and watch videos. Or mope around and complain to my friends about my situation. Or just cry.

And when help was offered to me to pick myself up, I felt overwhelmed. I thought it felt like I needed to do lots of
work to get myself out there. And I just didn’t want to get out.

It felt so tiring, even before I started what I needed to do.

And then I read a line somewhere that said, your feelings are not facts.

That how I felt doesn’t make it a fact and that they may not be true.

That woke me up. I realized that I may have been listening to a false reality.

The truth was, I really wanted the help but it was just too scary. I made all kinds of excuses like I can’t afford it. And it was too inconvenient to go there.

But I snapped out of my excuses and decided if I want a better life than what was in front of me, then I had to do whatever it took to help myself.

How can anyone help me if I was not even willing to help myself?

I dug deep and even got the funds. When I made the decision to help myself, I saw the opportunities I needed to help me get the funds I needed.

It was liberating.

I was unstuck in a matter of days. Things looked brighter and clarity just came to me like the break of dawn.

You too, can have the clarity and be unstuck quickly. You just need to make the commitment to do.

Three things to remember to get unstuck:

  1. Your feelings are not facts
  2. Being stuck may feel easier than the process (going through growing pains) of being unstuck, BUT, being stuck means you are dying, not living
  3. Get the help you need — via a book, a coach, a friend, a mentor, a program, anything at all! Anything that gets you out of the rut, change of direction for some movement. Remember movement is LIFE!

Have a great one!
