Are You Still Stuck on Still?


Are you still "stuck on still?" If so, don't let fear, doubt or disappointment rob you of your future, or keep you from your desires. Instead, see yourself as the person that you want to become. Human Beings naturally navigate towards the pictures they keep in their minds. Empower yourself and create the images you want to attract.

Consider asking yourself these life-altering questions. They can help get you unstuck and break through your bondage.

"What do I truly desire, but do not have?"

"What do I desire, and already posses?"

"What will I absolutely, unequivocally, no longer tolerate?"

Questions such as these will give you both an assessment and an appreciation for how much you already have. They also challenge you to identify new, empowering expectations. So go ahead. Make a decision to take a quantum leap towards your dreams and desires. Grab a piece of paper and construct three columns for each of the following:

1) What I desire but do not have (relationship, vehicle, career, ...)

2) What I desire and already possess (family, security, my own home )

3) What I will no longer tolerate (disorganization, poverty, depression, ...)

You may already know exactly what you will not tolerate. But, what if you don't know what you want?

If you're not sure what it is that you truly desire, then you are seeking transformational change ... whether you know it, or not. Start your search right where you are. Decide-right now-to be the change you want to see.

For example, if it's a slim and trim body that you desire and you are miserably 42 pounds over fat and know it, see yourself happy, trim, and slim. Commit to a healthy exercise and eating program for dropping 2.5 pounds of fat per week. Four months from today, you will have caught up with your vision.

Perhaps you're missing out on one of the greatest gifts, ever: loving and fulfilling relationships. See yourself happy and totally engaged in adventure, fun, and excitement. Think of all the ways you can put the magic in the mundane. Then, commit to connect or reconnect with at least two people per week to foster or rekindle healthy, spark-filled, loving, relationships.

Remember, if you are stuck on still, immediately decide to get unstuck. Become action-oriented and get things started right where you are. Resolve to stay optimistic and continue moving in the direction of your target regardless of how you feel, or how things look.

There is a grandeur picture of your spectacular life just waiting to be painted.

Won't you become the artist?
