So how do we unstick our thinking?
First, I have to know what I want. What if I don’t know what I want?
Start with your easy list. I want to have peace. I want to be in love. I want to have children. I want to be a good parent. I want to be healthy. I want to be independently wealthy. I want to know what is the next step I should take in my career.
Second, figure out the HOW. Let’s take the easy one. I want to have peace. If this is true then first I have to recognize that only my thoughts disrupt my peace. I may be under the illusion that other people take it away, but that is false. I give it away by letting the actions of others effect my thoughts. So when I decide to get upset about what “THEY DID or SAID”, I must be willing to say I want Peace so what is the next step here? I choose to forgive their action so I can have peace. I choose to go about my day so I can have peace and not dwell on “them”.
“Feeling stuck in life is a mind illusion. The only thing that is stuck is your thinking.” – Cari Rauch
In all the above questions the next step is to take ACTION. That is where we often get stuck. We don’t know what to do, so we sit, and think, as we do very little to help us achieve our goal.
Work for free, show up and volunteer, offer to help, simply because it will give us the change to do what we love. If we are out doing what we love then opportunities will present themselves. We may also meet someone that has like minded interests that could lead to falling in love.
