How Do You Break Free From A Rut?

How do You Break out of a Rut?

What is a rut? Sometimes it’s just boredom that comes with routine.  It’s the same old same old, I’ve been there, done that!  It could come from being tired of the food you cook or eat, the company you keep, your job tasks, your living situation, the places you go, etc., too many to list!

How do you break out of a rut? One way is to create some dedicated “empty” space in your life. When you successfully hit the pause button and step off the hamster wheel, you’ll be able to see your life from a fresh perspective and will finally be able to think about how you might start to make changes.

If you keep going and going without stopping, you’ll never discover the (often surprising) clarity and answers you long for. When you stop, even just for an hour, answers and ideas present themselves with almost no work on your part.

Empty Space is Powerful

Author and professional speaker Terry Hershey writes in his book, The Power of Pause, that our lives can become too full.    I believe we need time where there is no agenda, no to do lists, time to step away from the busyness, time to pause, time to reflect, recharge, time to be still.  It’s time for a tune up!

Busyness has a  tendency to crush our soul.  Being still means to turn off your mind and just BE STILL!

Change Your Environment

Another way to get out of a rut is to change your environment.  Whenever I get the opportunity, which I try to make it as often as I can, I enjoy going somewhere new just to give my mind a fresh perspective.  There are probably so many places to visit in your own town (or the next) that you probably have never been to.  Take a drive to a new area, walk into a new store or have a meal at a restaurant you’ve never been.   Enjoy the newness and take in the experience as you never know what you might find!

I enjoy visiting new coffee/tea shops or restaurants with a view of the water or boats and I bring my laptop to do work or write or whatever needs to be done! I even pay my bills there just to change things up! It makes me feel energized seeing and being in new spaces! I feel more motivated.

ACTION STEPS:

  1. Find one area (or a few) in your life where you can make a change.
  2. Put yourself first, make it a priority.
  3. Practice silence for 15 minutes.
  4.  Do something New!

The things You are Passionate About Are Your Calling! Are You Living Up To Your Full Potential?

What is Potential?

This is a profound question to ask yourself and as well a life altering one.  What is potential?  It is the inherent capacity for coming into being. It is existing in possibility expected to become or be; in prospect.

Ask yourself right now if you are living up to your full potential?  You might say yes or no or maybe you aren’t sure. If you’re not sure, you are not alone, many people are in the same boat.

 “The source of all creation is pure consciousness … pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest.  And when we realize that our true SELF is one of PURE POTENTIALITY, we ALIGN with the power that manifests everything in the universe”.

 ~Deepak Chopra~

Potential is the Possibility of Something Amazing!

I believe potential is the possibility of something amazing. To live up to one’s potential is to be open to one’s greatness. One of the first steps is to figure out your life purpose.  If you don’t know your life purpose, I believe it will be difficult to reach your full potential. To achieve its potential – some might call it ‘destiny’ and I believe you can reach it, but it will take focus, dedication, and commitment. It also takes thinking outside of your world, seeing things from a less self-centered approach..more on that later!

We all have Varying Potential

To achieve your potential, you need to develop a sense of what YOU are naturally like so that you can focus in areas that are in accord with your innate interests, nature, and strengths.  There are some great resources out there that you can use to find out your interests, personality type, etc., some are free and others you have to pay for.  Here are a few free ones (I’ve checked which ones were secure sites as there were a few that were not … had to learn the hard way!) You can search for more.

  1. 16 Personalities 
  2. Free IQ TEST
  3. Myers -Briggs also has a few but it will cost!

These tests will be a good start in helping you to identify what you are naturally like.

ACTION STEPS:

  1. What are your innate interests? Write these down.
  2. Take one of the personality tests to find out your personality type.
  3. What do you see as your calling?
  4. Ask close friends or family what they see you doing or what your gifts are.  This is affirmation in knowing if everything aligns.
