Keepin’ It Real: How to flip the “I’m stuck” story

*** If you’ve ever been “stuck” this is THE video to watch. ***

If you ever find yourself feeling rooted to one spot, unable to step forward into the next phase of your life or work… then this week’s video is all about YOU.

Patricia asks: “I’m stuck. I have no idea how to get unstuck. Every time I sit down to work, I seem to put it secondary. I know that I should be putting my work first but I can’t… because I’m stuck.  How do I overcome the sense that any contribution that I give is secondary or unimportant?”

 

Alright guys, here’s the truth about stuckness: it’s no more than a big, fat, ugly story going on in your head.

Sounds harmless enough, right? Problem is, these stories can be incredible destructive when it comes to your self-worth and motivation. When you’re operating from a place of inadequacy and insecurity, you’re not protecting yourself – you’re putting something crucial on the back burner thanks to a belief based in total fiction.

The only way to move past it is to write a brand new story that’s a true representation of who you are, what you’re doing, and your purpose on this planet. Yep – you have the power to do that! You have free will, and are 100% capable of choosing your thoughts.

Here’s how to start making the change:

  1. Notice your story – when do you start going back to that old sensation nor experience? When you become aware of what triggers that regression, you can figure out why it happens
  2. Flip the switch – be willing to write a new story for yourself, no matter how uncomfortable it may feel at first.
  3. Be willing to make a choice (this is the MOST important one!) – when your old story shows up, you have to consciously pick whether you’ll take charge… or allow that tired-out tale to keep running the show.

YOU hold the key to unleashing your potential. So decide: are you going to work to change the story in your head? Or are you going to stay in one place, with an old belief system playing itself out like an old record? It’s up to you.
