Everyone desires to progress in every facet of life. No one wants stagnancy. Moving forward in life is what you should not only long for but also strive for.
However, some persons have decided to treat life as it comes and has given up on opportunities that should push them to progressively move forward. This shouldn’t be. We are also programmed and created for success.
You want to keep moving forward in life, follow these three tips.
1. Take a Step Back
To move forward, your first step forward when you feel stuck is to take a step back. Most times when we get stuck, the first thing we do is to try to push to move forward, we try to get unstuck by pushing forward with sheer force or just trying harder. However, the best decision is to take a step back. Einstein said,
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it”.
2. Let Go of What’s Not Working
Tracy Kennedy a life hack development expert gave an illustration using mud. She asked, Have you ever walked through the mud and had your boot get stuck and your foot fly out? When this happens, you usually have two choices: either put your boot back on and keep plodding through, repeating the frustration as it continually gets stuck, or you can take off that boot and move forward.
When applied to reality this is true. When we get stuck, we often stay in the mud and try to drag our boots along.
She added ”We keep doing what’s cot working. The boot represents limiting beliefs, old habits, or stories you’re telling yourself. So let it go!
3. Reach out for Help
We can always reach out for help. No man is an island. You should se a little help when we’re stuck. Talk to a good and trusted friend, who knows and understands you. You can also seek advice from someone who’s been in a similar situation to yours.
Similarly, if you can afford it and are ready to go professional, look for a therapist to handle it, honestly, the world is changing, so you should change with it. Get professional help.
Tracy added, ”When you’re on your own, it can feel hopeless, overwhelming, and just plain impossible; but, a little push or pull from someone can quickly change your trajectory”.
