"The secret of getting ahead is getting started." -Unknown
(sometimes attributed to Mark Twain)
What do you do when you find yourself stuck in patterns and situations that don't serve you? When your life doesn't look the way you want it to, it's easy to get discouraged and spiral into depression and complacency. You may know what you want, but you have no idea how to get it.
People get stuck because they think that they need to have everything figured out before they can take action. All you have to do is take one step in the direction in which you want to go, and the next steps will reveal themselves. Opportunities you haven't even thought of will show up.
If you are feeling blocked or stagnant, try this exercise: In your mind's eye, envision your goal or dream, and then ask the universe: "What would it take for me to have this?" You don't need to know the answer. You need only to ask.
So take that first step and ask what it would take to have the life you want. And then tune into yourself and quietly observe what you see and feel. Keep your eyes open for signs. The first step in your journey is to set your intention... then step back and allow the universe to deliver what you want. You may be surprised at what shows up.
