OPINION – We all get stuck. It happens, even to the best of us. Over the last 9 plus years there’s one thing that has become clear to me; millions of people want to do more, be more and have more in at least one area of life. It might be finances, it may be in a certain career field, may be in your relationship, your body or may be in your spiritual life.
Either way – stuck happens. But don’t fret. There’s hope. That’s what this week’s column is all about.
In life there is a force. A force that is called “uncertainty” that many of us don’t have a healthy relationship with. It tends to show itself when we start to realize our romantic relationship’s don’t look so bright, when our financial life seems a bit dim, or when our families well being doesn’t seem secure.
So, how do we go from being stuck to unstuck?
The first step is discovering what triggers the uncertainty in your life.
Do you find yourself going into an emotional depression when you take a look at your bank account? Or may be you find doubt in your relationship when that look doesn’t look like it used to from your partners face, or what reaction you go into after watching the news.
For me, my trigger was finances. I would react by becoming an emotional wreck lashing out on the person that was the closest to me, while at the same time doubting the journey I was on. Ironically what most of us don’t realize is that when our uncertainty trigger happens, without the right coping mechanism it causes us to go into a non productive cycle that creates a non progressive state.
Becoming aware of how you feel internally when you find yourself in a doubtful state no matter your circumstances and replacing that with something positive (I.e working out, calling a mentor, meditating on what you expect to happen etc.) is the starting point to going from stuck to unstuck.
After all, you become uncertain from thoughts and thoughts become things.
Be Bold. Be Great. Be You.
