  • Ever felt like you were stuck and kept getting sucked in and didn’t know how to pull yourself out?

    This is something I’m sure we have all faced in life.
    Have you heard that old saying if you keep doing what you have always done than you will always get what you have always got. In most cases this is true.

    One way to get out of the quick sand is to change your habits and actions. Now this can be challenging as in order for us to change we first have to figure out what we need to change.
    So the first step to pulling yourself out of the quick sand is to try something new. Get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

    Now I know this can be daunting at times, my advice would be to take it a small step at a time and don’t put too much pressure on yourself.

    How do you know what to change and what steps to take?

    Think about where you would like to be and then think of the very first thing you have to do that will move you closer to that goal. Just think of the very first step at this stage, the reason I’m saying to focus on one step at a time is so you don’t get overwhelmed and get sucked down further.

    If you have to think about the overall picture and break it down into smaller goals. Ensure they are realistic and achievable.

    Try to make the steps as simple and easy as possible and then you can increase the difficulty as you move forward.

    This way it will help you get the momentum and the strength and determination to proceed.

    Before you know it you will slowly be pulling yourself out of the quick sand and will be on your way to solid ground.
    Just like anything it all comes down to your mindset. If you are not in the right place than more than likely you will succeed for a while and something may happen to suck you back in.

    You need to believe in yourself and embrace changes for yourself. If you are doing them for others then you may not find the strength to proceed.

    Ask yourself who are you doing this for?
    Are your reasons strong enough?
    Is you being stuck helping you or anyone else?

    You need to dig deep and understand why you are in the quicksand, if you are ready to pull yourself out acknowledge that you needed to be there for a reason.

    This may sound absurd; being stuck can be helpful, as long as we can pull ourselves out of the sand. Caught up in the quicksand may have been as you needed time to sort through your emotions, time to heal, to take a break and start fresh.

    Acknowledge that being there was part of a process that you needed to go through to get the epiphany that you now can move forward.

    Remember it takes courage to be able to sit with your emotions for a while and it takes more courage and determination to pull yourself out.

    In order for you to succeed in life you need to feel and acknowledge yourself for the brave person you are. You have to do what is right for you

    If you don’t then you’ll always feel stuck and will keep living with the feeling that you are getting pulled down.
    You are the perfect version of you. Believe in yourself and find out what it is that YOU want.

    Live life according to your rules.

    Relax, have fun and do what you enjoy.

    Stop comparing yourself to others. I believe if we didn’t compare ourselves to others we wouldn’t feel stuck as we would be fine with being a free spirit and just being ourselves.

    People may judge or criticize you, just know that is their issue, not yours. Don’t let others cramp your style or demand how you should live your life.

    Listen to the only person that really has a say in how you live.

    YOU.

    Everything in life is a choice, you can choose to pull yourself out and how you will do that, have faith in yourself and know you’ll act when the time is right.

    The rope to pull you out is always near, you just have to look for it.

    Go ahead and embrace the change and become the person you want to be.
