A way out

When you’re stuck, there is a way out, as much as there may not seem to be. Stop focusing on being stuck and you’ll begin to see what that way out can be.

The way to get beyond being stuck is to get beyond what you’re doing. What that means is that there is something you must change. By changing what you’re doing, you can begin to move forward. And soon you’ll be far beyond the place where you were stuck.

Yes, change can be frightening and change can be difficult. Yet the fact that you’re stuck is compelling proof that change is your best course of action.

Eventually you’ll see that being stuck was not such a bad thing. For it will have pushed you into making a positive change, a change that you’ll soon be grateful for having made.

When you’re stuck, there’s much that you can do, if you’ll simply accept the need for change. Change for the better, and move forward faster than ever before.
