Feeling Stuck? 3 Inspired Ways to Break Out of a Rut

Uncategorized Jun 16, 2021

You know where you want to be and how you want to feel. Or at least, you know where you don’t want to be. Whether in business, health, spirituality, or any other facet of your life, you don’t want to feel stuck. The problem is, knowing you don’t want to feel that way and actually changing how you feel are two entirely different things.

How to Break Out of a Rut When You’re Feeling Stuck

But today, I am going to share with you three inspired ways to break out of a rut when you’re feeling stuck. 

Start with a plan

Sometimes the best plan is no plan at all, but if you’re someone struggling to make the next steps, a plan could be just what you need. So, before you can take action, it’s time to start planning! 

I encourage you to take out a fresh piece of paper or open a new document on your computer. 

Make a plan for the next week. What are five actions you can take toward your goal? This could be getting outside for 30 minutes each day. Drinking a green smoothie five times a week. Or meditating every morning. Whatever they may be, pick actionable, realistic goals and steps to help you get to a better place.

After you have that first week under your belt, do the same thing for the next 30 days. Create a plan that will take you to the next level, including making moves in your business and upleveling your life in any number of ways. 

Before you know it, you have five weeks of action behind you, and you’ll realize you’re already breaking out of this stagnant state you’ve been in! 

Practice patience

As much as I would love to tell you that you can snap your fingers and get out of the rut you’re stuck in, it just doesn’t work like that. Breaking out of a rut doesn’t happen overnight. Instead, I encourage you to be patient as you work toward a better state. No matter how big or small the steps you’re taking, what matters is you’re taking them in the first place!

So, keep checking off those goals and actionable steps in your weekly and monthly goal sheet. As you look back, you’ll start to realize you’re accomplishing a lot more than you might think. 

Focus on your purpose

When I speak with my clients who feel stuck, I often discover these feelings are a result of not working or living in alignment with their “why” AKA, their purpose. In fact, there’s a big cost to not finding your purpose, and I talk more about that in this post.

Next, we work through an exercise to uncover their dharma and consider their deepest “why.” You can find that exercise here. Once you discover your purpose and begin to focus on living and working in alignment with it, you’ll find that rut is a thing of the past. 

So, if you’re feeling stuck, uninspired, unmotivated, or you just want to feel even better than you do now, I invite you to follow these three steps and watch the magic happen.
