Success doesn’t happen overnight. The most important thing you can do is to keep moving forward. We have all felt stuck at some point in our lives. Perhaps you might feel stuck right now.
Maybe you’re feeling a little stuck working on a creative project, like writing an article or painting a piece of art. Perhaps you started a new business, took on a major project at work or began a new health or fitness regimen.
Let’s be honest. Regardless of how stuck you are, it’s a terrible feeling. Feeling trapped and unsure how to move forward can lead to feelings of, confusion, hopelessness, insecurity and overwhelm. Sometimes we just want to throw in the towel and give up. But don’t give up just yet. Whether you feel just a ‘little stuck’ or like you’re stuck in dry concrete, trying to make a small or big decision, wondering what you’re doing with your life, feeling trapped in a job, overwhelmed by debt, unhappy in a relationship or life that isn’t the one you want to live, these strategies can help you keep moving forward.
REMIND YOURSELF WHAT YOU LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF
Look in the mirror, and remind yourself of your favourite features. Appreciate your own beautiful qualities, physically and emotionally. Remind yourself that your hardships make you who you are, and you are beautiful, talented, and well- deserving.
DON’T REGRET WHAT HAPPENED, LEARN TO ACCEPT
Regret is something that can greatly prevent you from moving forward. If you are unable to accept what happened, you will waste precious time and energy while mulling over your misery again and again.
Getting into action is critical to getting unstuck. There’s no substitute for momentum. Action enables further action, while inactivity creates inertia, self-doubt, and confusion.
It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that being unproductive and lazy does not help you to make progress in your life. All they do is waste your precious time. At one point in your life, however, you have to ask yourself the question if you want to continue seeking pleasurable distractions or if you are finally willing to make progress.
