Thank you to Warren Williams, a business success coach and the founder of TurningPoint Business Coaching, for this week's tip!
Getting “stuck” is a part of life, whether it’s a loss of motivation, a business plateau, or just a general feeling of blah.
Being stuck isn’t the problem, though – staying stuck is.
Consider these 5 tips to get “unstuck”:
Change your brain food
Change the information you’re consuming. Intentionally avoid negativity – take a social media break, perhaps – and find motivational messages instead.
Examine the people you spend time with
Jim Rohn (a business philosopher) said we’re the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Are your five people keeping you stuck?
Do what you’re afraid of
Sometimes the things we fear most have the most potential for a positive impact. Conquer those fears – public speaking, maybe – and you’ll reap the benefits of that skill plus get unstuck.
Invest in yourself
Take a class. Hone your skills. Be intentional about increasing your knowledge, and you’ll get unstuck and learn new ways to move your business forward.
Change it up
Used to take a walk after dinner? Try taking one before work. Drive a different route to the office. Shifting your patterns/habits changes your outlook and could be the key to getting unstuck.
