Feeling Stuck?


Feeling “stuck” describes a point when you feel trapped and you think there’s nowhere to go, and you’re lacking the motivation to move forward. 

Studies show that living in this plateau affects your brain. Negative events in midlife were “associated with predicted brain aging.” 

The longer you stay in a rut, the deeper it gets! If you’re ready for a motivational kick in the butt, keep this in mind… 

Anything can be broken down to small action steps that can be completed one little step at a time. In every aspect of life, no matter what your goal, remember that you can take small, doable steps. That’s the way you build a bridge, write a book, lose weight, or change your life–step by step. If you find that you’re not taking them, then either the steps weren’t really doable, or you need to go back and check your motivation.

The more specific your action steps are, and the finer you can break them down into doable increments, the more successful you’re going to be.


No matter what your goals are, remember that the first step is to come up with an action plan that inspires you and connects you to your intentions. It can be as simple as listening to this 10-minute Success One Step at a Time visualization every week to help you put one foot in front of the other so you have the power to take control of your life.

You action plan can include simple items, such as listening to this 10-minute Success One Step at a Time visualization every morning to help you put one foot in front of the other so you have the power to take control of your life.

Visualization is powerful.

It all boils down to this… visualization primes your mind and body for what you want to happen. Just like working out, the more you strength train, the stronger your muscles become.

Setting aside time to visualize your desired outcomes helps you practice success. When you rehearse every step of a goal and imagine it going well, you’re preparing your mind and body to take those steps in real life.
