Plateaus – pesky little circumstances that show up when you’ve in your own right hit a peak and start to taper off.
Maybe you got too comfortable and lost your hunger. No gusto left in the tank for what you once felt so passionately about. Now, you’re unmotivated and feel lost.
At this point, you’ve set your sights on another dream that lights a real fire in your belly. But you’re worried to give up what you’ve already built for something you’re not sure will work out.
Your worry may be fueled by what others might think of you for making a change or perhaps it’s financial; you’re simply not confident you have enough money saved up before you leap. Or others depend on you. Whatever it may be, it leaves you feeling very uneasy.
But the slump has hit hard and something’s gotta give…
So, what do you do? How do you figure out what’s next for you without blowing everything up you’ve worked so hard for up until this point? Or do you stay and keep dying a little inside?
Let me tell you this, the latter is not a viable option.
I want a full, joyous, and purposeful life for you, and you do too. But the trick is getting from where you don’t want to be to where you do. How do we do that? How do we figure it out?
For starters, don’t add more negative energy to your dilemma. Feeding negative Nelly won’t get you any closer to a solution.
Schedule time with yourself to understand the internal tug-of-war going on. If necessary, consult with a personal development coach or other supportive professional to guide you along the way to uncovering what it is you truly want.
Fuel your present by feeding your mind with thoughts of already having accomplished that which you wish to accomplish. Envision living the life you want clearly, as though you’re already living it is incredibly powerful.
Take action. Clearly develop your WHY and the best possible route for accomplishing your move.
Talk it out. Talk to someone you can trust. Not the online firing squad. Someone who can empathize with you, listens actively, and offers a way for your path to clear so you can get back to being clear and present.

Your plateau is pointing you to something bigger. There is an imbalance and it’s up to you to clear out the junk in your head and unpack the truth.

Remaining stuck or unfulfilled for prolonged periods can really drain you. So much so that it could lead to long-term misery; a funk like no other. Trust me.
