Have you found yourself in a RUT?
Of course, you didn’t mean to confine yourself to this rut . . . It just happened!
Kinda like boiling a frog . . . When you started doing what you’re doing, the water was cool and energy was good.
All was well and over time the water gradually went from cool to warm to – well – boiling.
Here you sit in that rut (pot) . . . boiled!
You ask yourself how you got yourself into this mess . . . and then the panic sets in . . . How will you get out of this alive?
After all, this rut is the only thing you know now.
It’s drudgery, but it’s YOUR drudgery.
You created it, and it’s your comfort zone . . . to get out of it would require CHANGE, and none of us are all that keen about change because it’s uncertain – unpredictable – scary – and just plain DANGEROUS!
What if you do this change thing, and it doesn’t work?
What will other people think and say about you as you morph out of your familiar rut and become “different”?
Maybe you’ll explain that you just now realized that everything and everyone around you is moving . . . always in transformation . . . and always has been while you’ve kept yourself in your place of safety – your RUT!
You’ve made your decision, and it’s time to let your hair down and live a little now!
Now for the hard work of . . . HOW?
Quit being so damn responsible and rational!
Make a game of it!
Decide to DO something about this self-imprisonment!
Stop caring so much about what other people think of you . . .
What other people think about you is none of your business (IMHO)
So this is gonna require a YUGE shift of mindset, and there’s no way to do this other than to eat the frog – rip the band-aid off – take the plunge.
Change or BUST!
It’s time to play some serious ball.
If you’re still reading this, you’re in deep tapioca because the seed has been planted.
Will you nurture it and let it grow?
Will you build a strategy to extricate yourself from this rut and choose to blaze your new trail to . . . somewhere else – That place in which you’ve always wished you could be?
I hereby grant you permission to do this 🙂
