How Do You Get Out Of A Rut! #463

I belong to a group of coaches we are called the Ultimate Coaches run by Shawn Berman. She just started a Facebook live that runs Monday to Friday at 9:00 a.m. pacific and each day you can hop on and get some tips and coaching on your life. Each day represents something different, Monday is coaching on home and environment, Tuesday is Relationships, Wed is Business and Finances and Thursday is Health and Wellbeing. If you want to check it out Lookup Inspired, Empowered & Unstoppable.

Regardless, one day a lady hopped on and said I’m stuck in a rut and I can’t seem to get out of it. My days are all routine. One of the coaches suggest that she try doing something different than she normally does. If she brushes her teeth with her right- hand brush her teeth with your left hand etc.

It reminded me of a course I just recently was in and for eight to twelve weeks we were invited to take on doing something that we never had done before. I was with a group of nine people and it was fabulous what some of us came up with. It doesn’t have to be big, like jumping out of an airplane sky diving. It can include that and it doesn’t have to be expensive just simple things. Another person asked her husband for things she would normally never ask for. Another woman asked her dad for something she was unable to ask for and finally did. A woman asked a man out on a date. Are you getting my drift? So if you want to get out of a rut I suggest you experiment. Once a week try on doing something you have never done before. You can do it more than once a week, and you must do it once a week. Schedule it into your calendar or the week will fly by. Eat food you never would have eaten. Go to a movie that you would normally not go to. Hang out with someone you normally would not hang out with. Read a type of book you would normally not learn. Ask questions of people you normally would not ask. I started taking different routes to the some regular destination. I found some lovely scenic routes minutes from my home. I now can avoid the bumper to bumper traffic. Have fun with this one. If you are a couple really brainstorm. Ask other couples what they do. One week the one person gets to choose the never been done before and go along with it. The other person chooses the next week. Who knows you may learn some new sex moves. Ha! You may discover a new partner that you didn’t realize lived with you all along. If you are single brainstorm with friends who knows what you might discover. Don’t forget to record it in a notebook and look at it at least once every two weeks. Celebrate your ability to try new things.

Where are you stopped in life because you think you have to do everything perfectly?

Where are you stuck in life because you are procrastinating, or feeling paralyzed?

Could this be because you have a barrier or a limiting belief?

Is this a habitual pattern that limits your ability to experience fulfillment and stops you from taking risks?

What could become available if you interrupted those beliefs and tried something new?

What are two new actions you could take right now to disrupt those beliefs? Do those actions within the next twenty-four hours. Schedule it in your daytimer now. Don’t forget to have fun. Ask an accountability partner for support.

Go for it!  I want on my gravestone she burned out instead of rusted out!  What do you want them to say about you?
Ask yourself are your actions and speaking in alignment with what you are committed to? Look at what are the habitual patterns that have that commitment thwarted?  Are you willing to take responsibility for when it doesn’t go the way you want or the way you expected and clean up your part? Are you willing to let go of Expectations of yourself and others?  What are you not being truthful about to yourself and others?
Our thoughts can be like a junk drawer-we need to take inventory and get rid of what is not useful! (wendy b)
