5 Ways to Get Unstuck and Create a More Fulfilling Life
I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately. I have realized how far I have come in my journey. Many of my clients have also come to a similar realization. We’ve been chatting about how far we have come from feeling completely stuck to now, making our dreams a reality.
I’m sharing how I changed my life from being stuck to living a life that brings me so much fulfillment and joy so that you can do the same in your life.
When I was a young girl, I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world—but I didn’t know what that meant. Long story short, I went to school for psychology, graduated, and then thought NOW WHAT?
What the f am I going to do with my life?
I had a belief that I had to have a lot of money to make a difference. I thought that if I had a lot of money, I could go back to Africa (I had previously volunteered there) and make a difference in some capacity.
I ended up getting into insurance. I was working for a big insurance company. And I clearly remember this specific moment when I felt stuck. I was in my little office having to do cold calls to teach people about insurance. I would dial number after number. Some people wouldn't answer, some would say they weren't interested, and some would hang up on me.
I was just sitting there thinking, I want something more from my life. I want to be able to help people—this is not it.
I began to try to figure out how to get myself out of that situation.
I was stuck. I felt paralyzed by fear, uncertainty, and the how of what I wanted to do. How I was going to get there and if I could make the leap.
Fast forward to now.
I am sitting in a condo in Mexico with a gorgeous view typing this blog post after completing a week of coaching sessions and connecting with all of you beautiful people.
So, what steps did I take to get where I am today?
How to Get Unstuck and Create a Fulfilling Life:
1. Become Clear of What You Want
Depending on where you are, and if you are stuck, it’s helpful to lean into the curiosity of what your potential path could be. Trust in the pieces of clarity that you do have, and be content with that. For example, I knew I loved traveling, and I knew that I wanted to work from anywhere and help people through my work. You don’t have to know every detail but just start to paint the picture of what it would be like to be where you want to be.
Trust that if there are any question marks, you will figure them out along the journey.
I’m so glad that I decided to quit the insurance job and got another job that was easy for me while all the rest unfolded naturally.
Be clear about what you want, but release and let go even if you don’t have it all figured out.
2. Get Out of Your Head
We have beliefs and thoughts that swarm our minds. As many as 60,000 to 80,000. We are unaware of all of them. It’s important to clear those thoughts so you can have mental clarity. Get out of your mind and these mental loops. Confide with a friend about what's happening or journal about what is coming up for you.
3. Clear Your Energy
When you are feeling stuck, you are feeling a lot of emotions. Emotions are energy in motion, so energy can get stuck in your body. If you are feeling a pit in your stomach, your head is pounding, you are experiencing physical symptoms, it's helpful to cleanse your energy.
If you are a little woo woo like me, you can clear through meditation otherwise: go workout, dance, sing—this will help you get out of that stagnant energy.
4. The How
It’s important to say: okay, I know this, and I feel better, but now I am going to see what's next. Sit down with a piece of paper and write down all the possibilities of what the first step could be.
Circle which steps you want to take.
5. Take Action
Lastly, once you know your next step, go for it. Take action. This will help you start the momentum. These steps are allowed to step into your purpose and get out of your head, then you can take action steps and figure out the how along the way.
This is my process for getting unstuck. I go deeper into this in my Clarity Creation Course, which is a 3 month 1:1 clarity course. I have 5 spots open this summer if you want to work on finding clarity and getting unstuck.
