Five Ways to Get Unstuck and Move Forward in Life


1. Focus on solutions

Focus on what you can do, not what you cannot. Your power is in what you can do right now, no matter how small an action or seemingly insignificant it may be. If you focus on what other people need to do in order for you to move forward, you are the prisoner of their decisions or indecision. If you focus on all you don't have, you'll never have enough. If you focus on what you do have, right now, and one step in the direction of where you want to go, then you will be one step closer to that place, and will see the route to the next step after that once you get there.

2. Live in the present 

Stop being dragged in your mind to the past. You can never ever change it. Even if you could change a moment or decision, from what you believed at the time and what other people believed at the time, the very next moment and decision would have been the same and led to the same results. You needed to go through that in order to get here. You can only live here, and decide what you are going to do from this moment, on.

3. Make a decision 

Look at the pros and cons of your possible decisions. Write them down. Every single decision will have positive and negative to it. Making no decision will also have positive and negative to it. Positive being, you're not going to make a wrong decision. Negative being, other people will make your decisions for you or will quit waiting around for you to decide. The ones who leave after getting tired of waiting are actually the more driven and positive people who were in your life. The ones who stick around, you can see as loyal, but they also may feel more powerless and will blame you for making them wait or not do what they wanted to do because they have given you that power and control. So you're not really avoiding anything bad by being indecisive, only confusing yourself and others, and allowing life to pass you by. 

4. Be honest with yourself

Give up waiting on potential and deal with what’s real right now. You can wait your entire life for things that will never happen. You've got to be honest with yourself on who you are, what you want, and where your priorities are in life. No dreaming of winning the lottery as your solution, or of running away. Your life is actually more amazing than you realize, and you have a lot more tangible opportunities than you think. Once you are totally honest with yourself, you'll see more clearly what is in your power to change. Once you see it, stepping forward will be a lot easier.

5. Believe in yourself 

Getting unstuck takes courage. To have courage, you have to encourage yourself! Let the world say no if the answer is no. Don't talk yourself out of what you want before you even try. Yes, other people may have tried and failed, or other people already did certain what? Other people have also tried and succeeded, and you could be in that group. Maybe you don't have to push yourself forward. Maybe you just have to stop holding yourself back.
