How many of you at one time or another has said in frustration, “I am stuck in life”?  If so you are in good company unfortunately.   Getting stuck is a part of living. It’s the cycle of life, but there are strategies you can use.  In this article, we’ll look at some ways to help you get your life unstuck.

Realize that the reason you’re stuck is because you want more.  It’s human nature to aspire to have more and be more.  Yet, this sometimes brings about feelings of guilt.  It’s key that you don’t confuse ambition with gratitude.  Being grateful for all that you have is necessary to helping you get unstuck in life.  It’s OK to want more out of life.  You just have to define what more is for you. 

I believe the culprit the majority of people get stuck is because of a lack of clarity about what ‘more’ is.  What’s the real reason you say “I am stuck in life”?  Is it because your dreams and intentions are unclear?  If so, you must gain the crystal clarity of knowing what it is you want.  This is a key factor in getting your life unstuck. 

If you don’t know what you want, it’s virtually impossible to get it.  And this contributes to a loss of direction.  I suggest you take time and brainstorm what you want to do going forward.  It’s like visiting a mall and going up to the directory of stores.  It has a, “You Are Here” indicator.  Without this point of reference, it will be almost impossible for you to visit the store you’re interested in.  And, so it is with getting unstuck.  You have to know your starting point before you can get to your destination.

Next, decide what your destination is.  You may simply be stuck because you don’t know what to do.  It’s super important to find an existing plan or create one.  There are several sources online that can help you devise a plan based on your newfound clarity.  But, you must apply the information you have.  You’ve got to take action to reach your goals and desires.

As you’ll see, getting unstuck is about first getting clear about what you want in life, determining your starting point and destination and creating a plan to get there.  Before you know it, you’ll be on your way to getting your life unstuck.
