Have you ever had a bright idea that excited you and sounded incredible? Your energy was flowing and you couldn’t wait to get started or move to the next step. So you decide to commit yourself to it and begin. This happens all the time to me. I will have lots of great ideas for myself, my business, my kids, my family, and most importantly what I think my husband should be doing (just joking about the husband).

At first, implementing the idea is going great, however, little by little, I often begin to experience the idea as being more work than feeling passionate about it. Sometimes, I will continue to slog on through something just so I can say that I finished it. But the once bright idea becomes a chore and the light goes out.

More and more I am deciding if the passion for whatever I am doing flames out, maybe I was only meant to do the part I completed?

So now when I lose that excitement with a project, I check in with myself and ask these questions:

• Am I tired of it because I’m bored?
• Am I tired of it because I have fear around it?
• Am I stuck and I don’t know how to move forward?
• Have I lost my passion for this particular idea?
• Have I turned the idea into a responsibility?
• Have I taken all the fun out of the idea?

After asking myself these questions, if it is fear related or I don’t know how to do something, I go get help from someone I think may have some insights. If I’ve taken the fun out of the idea or made it a responsibility, I will look at possibilities to put the fun back into it. If I truly have lost the passion or interest, I let myself gracefully say I’m done.

When you lose energy around your ideas, either reconnect to the idea or change the idea. If you are stuck or fearful ask someone to help you move beyond feeling stuck. The key is the more flexible we are with ourselves, the more flexible our world will be which will always allow for new ideas and action to show up for us. Staying stuck in your ideas is the worst experience. Your energy stops flowing.

Be flexible in your life so you can choose when to begin, continue or end something. By doing this you will always have a great flow of energy!
