When you have a goal or a dream to accomplish something, sometimes you get to a point where you feel stuck. You are unsure what move you need to take to keep moving forward. Sometimes, your motivation hits a rut and it gets to the lowest point, and you are really unsure what to do.
Thoughts of just giving up start creeping into your mind. You think of ways to get out of the rut, and at times you come to the conclusion that you really do not want to pick yourself up.
Sometimes, you even get depressed, because you are not making the progress that you should be.
Have you ever felt that way? Can you relate to what I am saying?
Getting stuck is normal, and we all go through it.
We don’t always get it right!
Hence the advice Never Give Up, because those who say it and use it know that there are obstacles, challenges that we will face, that will make us feel really stuck and not know what to do to take the next step forward.
The world keeps telling you to keep following your passion, and you are doing that. You are following your heart, and still you are struggling, so now you are confused! What are you supposed to do?
Here is what you can do to get unstuck:
Stop, and I mean stop completely
Yes I did say that!
Stop everything that you are doing, because it is very obvious that you need a break.
You have pushed yourself as hard as you can, and now you are stuck, burnt out, discouraged.
So take a break, and let your body recharge!
Remember Your Why
Do you even remember why you are working so hard? Do you even remember why you are even doing what you are doing?
You must keep your why close to you, because it should be the fire that will keep it burning in you.
And it has to be strong enough, so that no matter how stressful things get, or how hard they get, you can never lose hope. You can never give up.
Your why is what will keep you going, no matter what!
The truth is, inspiration or motivation never lasts!
Yes, you may have an emotional high because you read or watched something that touched something deep in your soul, but that moment will not move you day after day!
So, you need to get inspired again and again to stay at that high, that will allow you to keep taking action to move closer to your goals.
If you feel low on inspiration, you simply get re-inspired!
Get recharged, feel that high again and remember that nothing is IMPOSSIBLE!
Never be too ashamed or too shy or too proud to ask for help.
There is nothing wrong with reaching out to others and asking for help, it does not make you a smaller person, and it does not make you weak or anything at all.
Sometimes, doing everything yourself is just not possible, trust others to help you when you need it.
You are human, and you are not perfect. Most importantly, you are never alone!
We all get stuck . . . it does NOT make you less capable.
