How to Get Back On Track

Have you ever been working on something and halfway through you lose your motivation? All the sudden you don't feel like finishing. Or maybe you just feel this way about life in general. I have experienced this many times. Apathy sets in and noting sounds interesting anymore.

Today I want to encourage you. I want to help you get back on track and feeling like your normal self again, even if you're not quite sure what your normal self feels like.

LISTEN

The first thing to do is to listen to yourself. What is going on in your brain? Why did you lose motivation? Where is the apathy coming from? Go somewhere quiet and listen. Stop telling yourself all the should's and just listen. If you meditate, do that and see what comes up. If you have a hard time being quiet and listening, do a thought download.

ALLOW

After you spend time listening, allow your emotions to come up. No matter what emotions they are, you need to allow them to come up and give yourself permission to feel them. There is always a reason you feel the way you do, but the way to get past the feeling is to feel it, not avoid it. You have to feel your feelings and stop buffering or avoiding them.

DREAM

When you allow yourself to feel your emotions, you can create space for your dreams. If you are too busy buffering or only living on entertainment and not doing anything with your life as far as growth, you're not going to have any dreams. You have to pay attention to your emotions and give your dreams space so they can come to you. Think about what kind of a life you want to create. Know that anything is possible.

PRACTICE

Then it's your responsibility to take those dreams and put them into practice. Whatever project you started and didn’t finish, now is the time to do that. Start doing what you said you would do and you will build confidence in yourself and in your abilities. People will start noticing. You will feel better. Do things that bring you joy and happiness. Practice feeling abundant.

start small

You can even start small. Take one small step, and follow through. When you experience small wins, you build momentum. That momentum will bring you victory. You don't need to do everything in one day or one week or even one month.

Do small steps and let them add up. And then at the end of the year you will look back and see how far you've come. 

You will be back on track, in control, and growing into the next best version of you.
