People often come to me to me because they feel “stuck”. I frequently ask the person, “How do you know you are stuck?” Through many conversations, I often find one or more of the following are the causes of people feeling “stuck”.
Fear are feels that something bad will happen if we take an action or do not take an action. We fear we will fail, hurt someone or believe others will think less of our character and we will no longer be loved or respected.
Limited beliefs are thoughts of I should, shouldn’t, must, can’t, I am not enough (good, worthy, pretty, or smart) and I do not have. These thoughts generate feelings that we are lacking the resources, knowledge, skill, money, respect, control, prestige, or love to reach our goals and dreams.
Judgment is the weighing of another’s worth based upon their personal characteristic and circumstances.
Ungratefulness is simply looking at life, experiences, people, and resources from the view of entitlement.
Assumption is thinking we have all the facts regarding a situation, person or event. There is always more to the story than we will ever know.
Blame is we believe others actions or inactions caused an event instead of reflecting on how we may have contributed to the event.
Unconscious thoughts and actions is walking through life in a zombie state, trying to make it through another day without noticing our thoughts, actions or the beauty of life that surrounds us every moment.
Separation is a state of entitlement and the thinking that others are less and are not worthy of the resources needed for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well being, love, respect, safety, compassion and equal opportunities to live an abundant life.
Worry is being concerned about how others will respond to our actions and words. “What will they think? Oh my!”
Anxiety is rolling thoughts, actions, and experiences over and over in our mind so that we can gain control of the outcome.
Get unstuck during the holidays and treat everyone and everything with dignity, respect, love, compassion and joy. Take time to be mindful in your thoughts and actions. Be being thankful for all you have and for the beauty in the moment.
