Do you ever feel stuck in a rut?
If you stuck in a rut these maybe some of the reasons why:
1. You lack the knowledge necessary to make a change.
You might know that you need to be more confident, but you have no idea how to develop confidence. How – You need to work at it, not all skills are at your fingertips.
2. You don’t know what you want.
You don’t have to have all the answers right now but if you don’t have any idea of what you want how is anything going to change.
You need to set a goal, if you don’t know where you’re going how are you going to get there. Start small pick something you want and set that goal!
3. You can’t deal with being uncomfortable.
Doing things different can be scary, taking a step into something your not use to can feel terrifying. Anxiety, nervousness, and fear are great for preventing you from jumping off a 10-story building. But they’re worse than worthless when it comes to keeping you stuck.
Some level of discomfort accompanies any change, but your emotions are misleading you. You’re not in any real danger.
·Use your logic to talk yourself through it. “Nothing bad can happen from giving a speech. In fact, there are many benefits.” Use the logical part of your brain to override your primitive instincts.
-Start small and push through slight discomfort. Your ability to handle the bigger and scarier situations will grow with experience.
I will tell you from experience that once you start setting outside you comfort zone and into the change the fear will start to subside, really! One of my daily mantras is: Get comfortable with being uncomfortable – your comfort zone is a prison you create.
4. You give up too quickly. Change takes time.
80% of the change you ultimately see won’t reveal itself until at least 80% of the work has been completed. You need to keep at it, early efforts show little results, but things are happening behind the scenes.
It’s necessary to persevere to see a meaningful change in your life.
·Learn to be a finisher. Start completing all the little tasks in your life. If you decide to walk on the treadmill for 20 minutes, keep going until you’re done. Avoid letting yourself off the hook until an activity is 100% complete. Making any change can be a challenge.
Understanding what’s getting in your way can enhance your ability to bring about meaningful changes in your life.
You have everything within in you necessary to create a spectacular life. Go for it!
