Why do we sometimes get stuck in Groundhog Day situations? The same crap seems to happen over and over in our world, work, or lives. It’s because we are focused on being stuck, explaining why it sucks to be stuck, or seeking the reasons for being stuck.
To finally get unstuck, tell a better, bigger story. You’ll know it’s better because it feels good when you think about it. If you feel bad–even a tiny twinge–or if you catch yourself saying something like, “But reality is…,” you’ve gone back to focusing on the stuckedness.
Focus on that better story, explain why it is better, and seek the very next step to take toward it.
It’s up to us. Finally.
