I know all about getting stuck….trust me.
In fact, for years I was stuck in my business, relationships, and body. It seemed like no matter what I did I would get stuck and stay there and it was not a fun place. One of the things I love helping entrepreneurs with is getting unstuck because it so easy to get stuck and not so easy to get out unless you have the right tools and can apply them.
I want to address one of the stuck issues that most entrepreneurs have and it’s only seeing one perspective. Let me give you an example.
You: I am so stuck and I am just getting by in my business.
Me: What have you done to get unstuck?
You: I try thinking positive but nothing is working.
Me: It’s not about thinking positive..it’s how you are looking at the situation. So why do you think you are stuck?
You: I always felt I had to struggle. I come from a family where paying your dues is something you do to get ahead.
Me: Do you realize that is a belief they have imposed on you and that you don’t have to accept that as truth?
Being stuck is a CHOICE.
Once you realize you have been taking on other people’s beliefs you can change. The problem is trying to do it on your own is very hard. I know I tried reading every book I could get my hands on and it didn’t work.
What worked was having a mentor or being in a program that could give me the support I needed. It’s the fastest way to get unstuck. I didn’t have the money at the time but I knew NOTHING was going to change unless I affirmed that I would change and would do ANYTHING to make it happen. Once I AFFIRMED that I was going to do it the money came to me to pay for the program.
Then I went to the next level and hired a coach for one on one mentoring which was way out of my price range, ($15,000) so I could move faster and take an even bigger leap in my business. Whoa, did that feel extremely uncomfortable but again…I AFFIRMED that I would be able to pay it and had no idea how that was going to happen and it did.
I even had a $20,000 debt that I had only been able to pay the interest on for years and finally I was able to pay that off. I remember agonizing over it and every time I would think about the debt my stomach would knot up. It was when I DECIDED that I would SHIFT my focus to abundance and prosperity that I paid it off in less than 6 months with more money in the bank then I ever had in my entire life!
Let me tell you to get unstuck you don’t even have to be the smartest person. I struggled through high school with a C average. Then, when I went to college I almost got kicked out my first year! IQ has nothing to do with how much money you can make.
I know there are surveys out there telling you that educated people typically make more money which I would agree but not entirely. I know people that have graduated at the top of their class and are jobless or making very little.
In fact, my father graduated from college with a C average and created a very successful fiberglass business which now he just sold and travels all around the world. It’s funny because even with his success I was still stuck and couldn’t figure out how to get out of it until I AFFIRMED I was going to find a way no matter what!
What keeps most people stuck is that you’re looking at the lack instead of creating prosperity and they refuse to get help. It’s a slow climb trying to do this without someone who can guide you and get you out of your own way. If you have been stuck for more than a few months and are not getting help then it’s a good chance you will stay there. I am giving you a wake-up call and permission to start taking charge of your life and stop giving yourself excuses. You deserve to be happy and prosperous and you don’t have to do it alone..I promise.
Being stuck is a choice..so what is yours?
