Why You’re Stuck

May 2, 2011

business man“Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you’re ready or not, to put this plan into action.” -Napoleon Hill

Sometimes it’s not easy to find focus. You can reach a point where you know something must be done, you just don’t know what. I can spend hours considering this plan or that one. Each alternative makes sense, and yet none of them seems like the way to go.

We can be afraid to commit to an idea or a plan of action because we want to know for sure what the outcome will be.

Often our gut feeling, or intuition is ready to show us the way. It’s sort of an early warning system, but so many of us simply ignore it.

There are times when we may rely on a mentor, or someone who appears to have the wisdom that we lack. But there are other times when we know perfectly well what the best course of action is…we just don’t follow it.

If you are going in circles about a decision, is it because you can’t decide what path to take? Or do you already have a gut feeling about what you want to do, but you don’t trust it?
