Do you feel the ups and downs, the feeling stuck, moving forward, feeling stuck again?
Here are 2 questions to get you out of the stuck place a little quicker.
When you feel stuck, you most likely fall into one of these categories:
I don't know enough
I don't have enough time/money/help/etc.
I don't work hard enough
I am not smart/pretty/good/fill in the blank enough
The first question addresses this scarcity mindset.
1. How would I approach this issue/theme assuming I already have everything I need?
Initially, you believe:
I need something or someone outside of myself to get me unstuck.
What if you already had the tools, the knowledge, and the time? What would it look like?
You might start seeing those little quirks that make you so different and unique.
You might start following your intuition.
You might start trusting your abilities and your genius.
You might start showing up more authentically.
The 2nd question is inspired by Tim Ferriss, the author of Tribe of Mentors, The 4-hour workweek, and just a badass.
2. What would it look like if it were easy?
Perhaps you feel stuck because you are the queen/king of overcomplicating things.
Stemming from the "not-enoughness" above, you might find yourself thinking "I don't deserve this outcome if it comes too easily" and you might sabotage your attempts to make sure the achievement is hard and well-deserved.
Set aside that limiting belief and really ask yourself: what is the easiest way I can get from point A to point B?
My little Leo just celebrated his 6th birthday this weekend and this question came up a lot. Needless to say that this question chopped many things from my list that were unnecessary such as baking a cake for both his birthday party at home and his birthday party at school!
Do you catch yourself overcomplicating things? Can you cut the fluff out?
That's it, simple.
That's actually my zone of genius. I help clients focus on the things that will move the needle in their business and their life. Everything else is fluff. It's time to rise above the noise and remember who you are.
