What Is Your Objective?
Are you going to let the difficult times determine your value and quality of life?
Are you going to build your future on a foundation of pains from the past?
Or you going to let it inspire you to change the direction to a more positive outcome?
When you are feeling stuck which I think everyone has at one time or another (hopefully not too often) you are presented with an opportunity. The only problem is most of the time you don’t see it as opportunity because when you’re in that place of feeling stuck there are other emotions going on that cloud your view.
The opportunity is change! Changing your thoughts, changing your attitude, changing your outlook and ultimately changing your life direction.
When you move in the direction of positive change it alters everything in your life:
- It starts with you and your thoughts, do they sway a little stronger one way or the other (positive or negative side)? What you tell yourself, especially from your subconscious impacts how you feel and how you feel impacts how you interact with others.
- When your thoughts change so do your interactions with others and how you view and perceive them. Things that possibly annoyed you before begin to become not so important, not because someone else has changed but because you have.
- When your attitude changes that changes your outlook and your world around you becomes less offensive, not because others have changed but because you have. It’s not “what you get is what you see”, it’s actually “what you see is what you get”.
I’m not going to lie, it’s hard to change your thinking around when you are coming from the place of feeling stuck. It’s hard to find something solid to stand on so you can rise up from whatever has put you in this place but it is possible.
It takes only a quick shift of thought, that lightning moment to change the direction. I know that when I get an idea in my head I don’t let it go until I’ve exhausted everything trying.
No one is a failure for trying something that didn’t work, not trying will do more damage to you emotionally through regret than any effort ever made that didn’t work.
Vulnerability is the only way and it’s scary to put yourself out there especially when you don’t know the answers or feel you aren’t ready or strong enough to have them heard but it is such a freeing place to be. When you allow yourself to be vulnerable there’s nothing left to hide, nothing left to expose or exploit, that changes it into power, personal power!
Whatever caused you to feel stuck is usually not something external but something you find the answers for internally. Circumstance is just that and circumstance cannot hinder your personal power only you can do that by thinking you are powerless to change a situation.
All situations can be challenged and possibly changed and feeling stuck is only a state of mind, one caused by your own resistance of thinking you are powerless.
Bottom line is you need to be the change you wish to see!
