3 Steps to Get Unstuck

Wanna make a change but find you keep doing the same old things instead? You are not alone. We all do it!

  1. Set an intention – Know what you want. Decide what you want
  2. Believe it’s possible - Believe you can have and deserve it.
  3. Take action - Do something different. Take a small step toward what you want.

These 3 simple steps can lead us to new expansiveness in our life. They support you to live in the possibilities instead of in doubt and fear. I lead my coaching clients through these steps in every phone session I have.

They are steps to write down and remind yourself of whenever you feel stuck.

Yet, you can get stuck on any of these steps and not move forward.

Take number 1 for example…. Sometimes we are not clear enough about what we want. Like me when I was working in Corporate America as scientist, I just did not take the time to ask myself what I really wanted. I did have time! I was too busy and too stressed out to ask myself, the all important questions that I often ask my clients, “What fills you up? When do you truly feel satisfied? What do you really, really want in your life?” “If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do differently?”

Number 2 is where most women get stuck. They know what they want, yet the don’t believe they deserve it. Or they don’t believe that it’s possible for them. Or they believe it’s too much work. They usually are holding restrictive beliefs (I call these Weeds) about it or about themselves – such as, ‘I’m not good enough, strong enough, confident, talented etc.’ What are you believing about yourself that is keeping you stuck? What weeds are restricting you from blossoming? (Read this post to -> change restricting beliefs – Weeds to Flowers)

Sometimes inaction is the way we keep ourselves stuck. Fear keeps us stuck in inaction. In our mind we equate our comfort zone with safety. Doing something different seems scary and unsafe. The solution? The Nike Slogan – ‘Just Do it!’ Once we take action we see that it’s not that scary. We build confidence when we take action and try something new. We then re-enforce a new belief – an expansive belief that supports our blossoming. We create a flower instead of a weed.

Try it and let me know how it goes!

  • Rena, number two is so important. We have to believe that we deserve it and we do! Great article. At Purposeful Woman we talk about some of the same things – creating your own journey, not measuring your success against someone else’s idea of what your life should be like. And now I have put together a leadership training for women online that addresses that second point so well – we help women understand what their plan is and then help them believe they deserve it and set about making it happen with specific strategies.

    Thanks so much for another great message to help us get unstuck!
