Are You Stuck in a Rut and Can’t Get Up?

“I don’t know what to do.” “I feel stuck.” “I’m in a rut.” Those are words I hear frequently from clients. Life feels stalled. All those big hopes and dreams you once had for yourself seem like they’re on a distant horizon or even in another universe altogether.

Conversely, if you feel bored, uninterested, and/or drained by something, that’s your intuition communicating change is needed. Go in a new direction.

How about you? Here’s a list of questions to ask yourself.

I want to be in a different job next year.

I like my career, but feel I’m in the wrong position.

I long for the weekends when I can work on
my hobbies or other interests.

There are other career choices that have always
fascinated me and I’d like to check them out.

I need to find something new that’s fresh
and creative.

I feel I’ve done everything I can to change a
bad relationship. I’m convinced it won’t get better and yet
I can’t seem to leave.

My work has become predictable and boring.

I have other interests but I never or rarely
pursue them.

I hardly ever have time for creative or spiritual pursuits.

I find myself daydreaming a lot about
switching careers.

I don’t like where I am in life, but I also don’t know
what I want either.

I think about change, but I get stuck in inaction.

I feel excited about a new career direction but
can’t figure out a way to earn a living at it.

I long for a way to make a contribution to my
community but don’t feel I can do it in my present work.

My life feels out of balance. (Too much work and
not enough time for family, social and personal time.)
