We all know that one “something” we need to conquer in this lifetime. I’d be willing to bet most people’s “something” is related to self-care or relationships. So many people reach out to me feeling “stuck.” In fact, it’s by far the most common word I hear from new clients. I can’t help but think the reason we get “stuck” is because somewhere along the way, we pushed down that “something” we know needs to be confronted and dealt with. Rather than walking through the fire to the other side, we choose to shy away and run from it.
What fire do you need to move through? Really think about that today for a few minutes. What is the predominant pattern you see within yourself which keeps you “stuck?”
Only you have the answer. Once you do, reach out for your reinforcements. Maybe that’s a mentor, loved one, therapist, or coach. Remember, however, you and you alone have the power to make it through that fire. You can ask others to walk beside you, but ultimately you must make the choice, take the action, change the behavior. The beautiful part is the elation felt from harnessing the courage to move through the pain… and of course the bonus of your reinforcements waiting for you on the other side!
