Take a moment to think about what your ideal outcome would be in any situation that is taking up your thoughts and time at the moment. Really sit a second, and try to get a clear picture in your mind, or on paper, what being unstuck would look like before continuing.
Options – Now that you have a better idea of what you want, take a look at the below questions, and answer at your leisure:

What specifically have you done so far? What worked and what didn’t?
What do you have already (skills and resources) that could move you forwards?
What research could you do to help you find the first (or next) step?
What do you need to do before you do anything else?
Who else could you ask for help in achieving your goal?
If you were at your best, what would you do right now?
What would you do if you were an expert in (the area of your goal/problem)?
What would you advise your best friend to do if they were in your situation?
What would your best friend advise you to do?
What would (someone who inspires you) do in your situation?
If you had a choice what would you do?
What if you had as much time as you needed?
What if money were not an issue?
Imagine you’re fully confident in your abilities, what could you do?
Imagine you’re fully confident that others will support you. Now what could you do?
What other angles and options have you not thought of yet?
What is an impossible option?
What is the decision you have been avoiding?
If you (secretly) knew the answer to getting unstuck, what would that be?

Action – With all the great ideas and scenarios you answered above, you now have an amazing list of options to put into play:

What would be the smallest or easiest first step for you?
Which options or actions grab you?
How could you make the tasks/actions more enjoyable or fun?
Who else could help you in completing your action/s?
What’s one action you could take in the next 10 minutes?
What are three actions you could take that would make sense this week?
Let’s imagine you have found a magic lamp. You pick it up and absent-mindedly begin to stroke it. What’s that? I think it’s talking! Now, as you listen, I wonder what action it tells you to take?

Commitment – Do something now! Take any action, even if it is just reciting what you will do this coming week to move towards what you want:

When specifically will you do your action/s? Include the day AND time.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely are you to complete each action?
– If it’s below an 8, then ask what is stopping you from completing the action – and make this your first action.
How do you normally sabotage yourself – and what will you do differently this time?
Who will you tell about your actions (to support you in completing them)?
What specifically will you ask your supporters to do for you?
How will you reward yourself when you complete your actions?

Be mindful that you can tweak the above questions, and make them personal to you. You can also take a day or few to answer the above questions in the most truthful and helpful way for YOU. Also, focus on the outcome first, what you want second, and what steps you are going to take NOW to get THERE!!

I wish you the best, if you have any thoughts you would like to share, or helpful suggestions for other readers, please do, as I welcome your input

Sending smiles,
