Don’t you hate feeling stuck? We all do! And it happens, no magic pill to get around it.
Especially when you are feeling the need to move forward and do some amazing things for your life or your business, being stuck is no fun.
So what I want to do is be able to help you think through a process of finding resources and getting yourself unstuck when you are feeling stuck. Yes, it would be great if there was always a coach or someone there to walk you through a process when you feel stuck but I want to give you another alternative that you can use by yourself. So you can identify with the feelings of being stuck and decide to take action.
Have you ever been through an experience where you had to catch yourself and autocorrect because that was the first time you went through it may have thrown you off guard but you survived. Like skidding off the road accidentally. Now because you’ve been through that experience you are better prepared for the next time to know how to maneuver yourself back on the road without jerking the wheel around. Because now you know how to autocorrect.
Same deal here, I want to show you how to correct yourself without needing the assistance of someone else when you are feeling stuck because you have been through it before and now have a way to get yourself moving again.
On my podcast this week, we did some coaching this week with a business owner along with a mindset and marketing coach that is in my circle. She wasn't completely stuck but had some small areas where she was stuck with regard to her mindset and marketing but there were still some things to move her through. It was exciting! Listen and see.....

Let’s get ourselves unstuck!
Do a checkup from the neck up!
You want to identify with this stuck feeling and acknowledge it. Make sure to get in a quiet space so that you can hear yourself think. Put down the social media and the cell phone and just focus on who you are and where you’re at.
Make sure that you are aware of what created that feeling of being stuck in the first place. Roll back through your memories and try to identify when you first started feeling that feeling and what created it. That is important because it can help clue you in to what the need is that will help to get you unstuck.
Assess what’s currently working in your business/life and what’s not
Now this does require you to exercise a high level of honesty. You need to be honest with yourself to identify the things that are working well and those are the things you would like to continue. Please identify those first so that your energy level will be high as you are reviewing the things that are not working well later. You will draw on that energy to help you be in a place of openness.
You want to be at the highest possible point for your energy so that you will be able to look at the things that are not working well objectively and honestly. Make sure that you are documenting everything that you are frustrated or overwhelmed about. Keep both list as you will be referring back to them both.
The positive things that are working well are the things that will drive your energy and then the other things that are not going so well are the things that you will need to work on by selecting something on that list to get you unstuck.
Tip # 3
Find the top gun!
When you make the list of things that are not working well, you don’t want to work on all of them at once. Or not even several of them at once. The list helps to put in perspective where you are and where you need to go. You only want to select the one thing from that list that is the top gun for you to work on to get you unstuck.
I would prefer it be a moneymaking activity but if it feels more comfortable for you right now to do something that is not moneymaking but a simpler task that will get you moving again, go right ahead. The object is to get you unstuck by taking action. Whatever you do on the list, keep in mind that it will help you to move forward in life or business either way, whether moneymaking or not.
And lastly Tip # 4
Let your actions run the day!
You are doing all of this so you can take action and become unstuck. Most of the time when people are stuck, they are paralyzed. We are wanting to eradicate your paralysis and make things happen for you in your life or your business.
This will always be my final tip for everything you read from me because without action nothing happens. The reason you’re stuck is because you had a plan and for some reason fell off the path of that plan. Taking action is the only thing that will get you back on your plan and moving forward.
Does being stuck sometime involve your not having enough time to complete things? Well I have just the right resource that can help you with that!
