4 Tips For Getting Motivated When You Feel Stuck
Do you have the desire for change, or for something more, yet you feel like you don’t have what it takes to make it happen.
I understand the frustration that comes from feeling stuck. I know how helpless feeling trapped can make you feel. Yet, feeling stuck is also a gift. It’s showing you that something in your life needs to change and it’s prompting you to move that one step closer towards your something new.
If you’re feeling stuck, here are five tips you might like to try:
1. Write down what is important to you
This is also related to your values, the things that are not negotiable for you at this season of your life.
What do you want your life to look and feel like? Do you want to work for yourself or to have flexible hours? How do you imagine your ideal day, weekends. Who is part of your life?. Write this down.
Be realistic about what’s feasible for you, but be honest with yourself about what you really want. Getting back in touch with what is important to you can help you to find the right motivation to take action and take decisions.
2. Don’t worry about the ‘how’
Focus on what you want start taking small actions, without overthinking. If needed focus on your health and wellness.
‘How’ is your mind trying to protect you. Sometimes you must take the leap and grow along the on the way.
You never know what might happen if you began to pursue a big goal or dream of yours. People who you might meet or the places it might lead you to.
3. Do more of what you love and connect with likeminded people
Read books, listen to podcasts, or contact someone you find inspiring and plan a call or coffee with them , even if you dont know this person.
Surround yourself with people who have accomplished things you would like to accomplish too.
4. Take small steps
When you’re feeling stuck. Start with the smallest, tiniest change you can think of. Then add another and another . Maybe even take a step back. Eventually you will end up somewhere else entirely.
What matters is really the journey and not only the destination.
