Dear Friends . . .
Is your life feeling a little out of control?
Are you spinning your wheels trying to gain some sort of traction?
On the hamster wheel and can't step off?
Stuck doing everything for everyone else from your boss to your best friend, and finding the love tank is empty when it comes to you?
Somehow when we think things can't get any worse somehow it does. We fall into a rut and struggle to get out of it. When we get in the stuck mode and want a change we sometimes look outside of ourselves for happiness - clothes, food, cars...when really we should be looking inward.
Change comes from within us...and it's scary, I get it. But there's no doubt about it, looking inward is necessary for getting unstuck. That's when real change comes. Here are 4 strategies that I recommend you try to help make gradual changes.
Let go of the past- Still blaming yourself or someone else for something that happened years ago? How's that serving you today? Ask yourself why are you stuck on these memories? What's one thing you can do today to change and move forward and leave the chaos behind? Journal about it? Getting it out of your head and on paper is one way.
Change your thought pattern - Release the grip of the past and you will feel freer to change your attitude. To gain a new mindset take a walk, meditate - do something that will take you away from the situation. Create space for yourself - Open yourself up to new things, new people, places and ideas. These changes will help gain a new perspective on what is possible.
Start with Baby Steps - Change can stimulate creativity and clarity in your brain. You can start with changes around your house, marriage or relationships, make new friends - every small change can result in a big win and reaching your goals - and saying bye-bye to feeling unstuck.
Believe in Yourself - Trust your decisions, thoughts, and step outside your comfort zone. Remember nothing changes if nothing changes. Many people sabotage their own progress as a result of deep-seated fears and limiting beliefs. Pay attention to your words - do you hear, "I can't" "I don't know" "I have to" see if you can replace those words with "I can do that" or "I don't know right now but will get back to you." Try flipping "I have to" to "I get to."
Making these small changes can produce big results.
