Seven Ways to Help You Get Motivated and Mobilized!

Ever feel stuck in place in your work (or life)?  Do you long for something better, but either don’t have a clear picture what you want to accomplish or are afraid to leave a “safe” place you know to explore and face the unknown?  Most people fear making a major life/work change, even one they might view as being positive!

Seven Ways to Help You Get “Unstuck”!

  1. Take  some time to clarify what it is you really want.  Free writing (journaling) can often help you get in touch with your inner thoughts and feelings.
  2. Talk with a  trusted friend, mentor or coach to help identify your unique strengths and personal values.
  3. Brainstorm possible new paths that fit your strengths, values and also preferences.
  4. Create an overall plan including a flexible time line to make a change, once you have identified your new life/work goal.
  5. Make a list of doable small-step goals to get to your major goal.
  6. Develop an ongoing relationship with a cheerleader friend, mentor or coach to give you continual encouragement (and maybe even a smile) while you work toward reaching your goal.
  7.  Make sure to celebrate when you accomplish a single step toward a large goal—don’t wait until you have accomplished the whole big goal, or you might get discouraged and give up before you succeed!

A secret to moving forward to creating a better life and/or career is:  UNDERSTAND NO ONE OR SITUATION IS PERFECT, BUT IF YOU DON’T MOVE FORWARD YOU MAY BECOME FROZEN IN PLACE LIKE A STONE STATUE AND MISS OUT ON ATTAINING A RICHER, MORE SATISFYING LIFE!
