What to Do When You are Feeling Stuck in Life
This is bound to happen to us at some point in our life.
You are progressing and all of a sudden, you don’t know what to do.
Now You are feeling stuck in life.
And you want to move forward but something is stopping you.
You’re doing something everyday and you want to do something else.
Then you analyze all the other scenarios but fail to do any one of them.
Being stuck in life is a hard place to be in.
Maybe it’s your circumstance. Or maybe it’s someone.
You are stuck in life because of one certain thing.
When you have understood this certain thing, you will be able to get unstuck in your life.
It’s time to get unstuck and move forward in life.
Why are You Stuck?
As you feel stuck, you succumb to the paralysis.
You look out at all the situations you could be in, analyze their ups and downs, and you get stuck between hope and fear.
The problem is that you are stuck because there’s too many to choose from.
But you don’t want to pick the “wrong” choice.
So you spend your time analyzing the “best” one to go for.
You don’t want to invest and spend all of your energy into the wrong path and later regret it.
So we do nothing and the cycle repeats itself.
Here’s the thing though…
You Don’t Know What Will Happen
When you put all of your decision power into your conscious mind, it feels like you there are too many choices to make.
Everything you assume will happen is based on your limited perception of reality – experiences, beliefs, people, and things you read about.
The more you fill yourself with too much information, the less you will move forward because you are cutting off branches of possibilities and creativity.
Life never goes exactly as planned.
Therefore, it is foolish to predict those futures because it will not happen as we wish it would go.
You don’t know what will happen and that is the joy of it.
Once you do that, the huge weight on your shoulders is lifted.
And you begin to feel free to make the right choice.
Instead of looking at all the potentials, narrow down to the most important potentials.
Then you will find clarity in your life and this will help you move forward.
The Power of Clarity
Clarity will help you get to where you want to go.
You will no longer become stuck in life because you are clear on where your path is heading.
The most important clarity you want to have is to be clear on what you really want.
Often you think you want something, but you really want something else.
Ask yourself, “WHY you want what you want?”
For example, you may be in a job you hate and you want to become an engineer.
Then you think of all the ups and downs and end up doing nothing.
You are stuck in life.
So what is it do you really want?
You may think that becoming an engineer would get you more money.
But WHY do you want money?
Maybe it is because you are not looking for money but you are looking for freedom.
If it is freedom you seek, then you can look for a flexible job that gives you the sense of freedom.
You can become clear on what you really want and why you want it.
But you don’t have to make choices on the endless possibilities in your life.
You just have to choose the decision in the present.
Make a Choice Now
Each and every day, we are making choices.
Even the act of doing nothing is a decision we take.
But you don’t have to think too far or too big.
Pick a choice. Now.
Look at the possibilities you have right now.
And choose any decision that will help you move forward.
I know it’s tempting to imagine, “what if it doesn’t work”.
You don’t know if it will work or not.
That is not for you to decide at the moment, let the universe decide for you.
So whatever choice you have now, pick it and move forward.
Now you won’t be stuck anymore.
If it doesn’t work out, at least you know.
More often, you can change directions along the way because life is always changing.
Breathe and Move Forward
When you are stuck, you are not making choices.
Everything seems to be too much.
You don’t have to be stuck.
Make the choice to do it now.
And know that you will break the cycle by making the decision.
Don’t worry if it doesn’t work, you will know it after moving forward.
Know that whatever happens, you will be moving forward each and every step.
It is the conscious critical analyzing mind that stops you.
So stop the critical mind and trust the universe will lead you aright.
When you realize that, you will be unstuck in life.
