Simple Steps To Get Unstuck and Stay Motivated
There are times when we feel stuck. It’s a natural thing that we all seem to go through from time to time. It can happen in all kinds of areas where we want to make progress. For example, you want your network marketing business to grow so you know you should be making follow up phone calls, doing marketing and promotion, writing newsletters and blog posts.
Sometimes when building your business you can find yourself feeling stuck wondering which way to go. You have to figure out which ways to market and promote your business. Once you figure out those things, you need to use trial and error to test out what works for you. You may even find that you need to totally change directions. The thing is, you can’t change directions until you get moving. Think of driving a car. The car has to be moving before you can turn in any direction, whether a slight turn or a full turn.
The key to getting unstuck is to just start moving forward. Motivation never starts automatically. It kicks in once you get moving. Even if on some days the steps are small. Just take steps.
I love that quote by Joe Schroeder, “You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it GOING!” The way to get anywhere is to start from where you are right now, learn and make adjustments as you go. If you don’t start moving towards your goals, you will stay eternally stuck. Even the smallest steps stir more steps forward.
An example used by writers is to just start writing. Don’t worry about what you are writing. Don’t over analyze. Just start pouring out words on a subject. Once you get the thoughts flowing, more ideas come to you.
The same applies to other things. Picking up the phone and calling someone when you are not in the mood can seem like an impossible task. Once you make that first phone call, the mood lifts and the next call gets easier. Exercise is another example. It can be hard to get off the couch and get an exercise session started but once you do, it is easy to keep going. I often trick myself by saying, “I’ll just do 5 minutes worth.” I always stay on for more.
EFT can be a really wonderful tool to help get motivated and get unstuck.
Here’s and EFT Script to help you get motivated:
Apply 1 – 3 drops of Release oil on your fingertips, then tap on the Karate Chop Point with the oiled up fingertips. As you are tapping the EFT Points, you will have enough remaining oil to carry to all the other points.
While tapping the Karate Chop Point, Repeat 3 Times:
Even though I am feeling stuck and unmotivated, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I don’t know what to do , I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I’m stuck and don’t feel like doing anything, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
You can add something specific you need to do if you want.
