"It takes guts to get out of the ruts."
Robert H. Schuller
Ever get the feeling that you're trapped in the wrong place? Or maybe working at the wrong job? Perhaps even hanging out with the wrong kind of crowd? Do you sometimes feel like you're doing the wrong things? Going the wrong way? Constantly make the wrong kind of moves?
Do you ever start thinking that you're not where you want to be? Not doing the things you want to do? Not really getting the things you want out of life? If it feels like your life is out of whack; out of balance and just kind of all messed up, chances are pretty good that you're stuck...
IN A RUT.
And need to get out.
"A rut is a grave with the ends kicked out."
Paul J. Meyer
All of us have been stuck in a rut at one time or another. Different ruts to be sure, but ruts nonetheless. And getting stuck, regardless of what you happen to be stuck to, is no fun. No fun at all. After all, when you're stuck, you're not where you want to be in life. Nor are you doing what you want to do. And you're not any getting closer to where you want to go either.
You're just trapped, boxed in; stuck in a dead end job, stuck in a hopeless situation, stuck in a seemingly inescapable rut.
And while you want to do something different, something better, anything other than what you're doing, you don't. For some reason - or perhaps no reason at all - you keep doing what you've been doing, even if what you're doing hasn't been doing a great deal of good. And wonder why you're so unhappy, so miserable, so completely and totally stuck.
Getting stuck in a rut is fairly easy. It doesn't take a whole lot of effort. Nor does it require a great deal of dedication or focus. As a matter of fact, it doesn't take much of anything at all. You just get stuck. The sad thing is a lot of folks never even realize they're stuck in the first place. They just keep chasing their tails, going nowhere, getting little if anything done. And then they do it all over again. They just keep banging their heads against the wall, hoping and wishing things will turn out differently this time.
"If you're stuck and you don't know how to rise, don't look outside yourself. Look inside."
When you're stuck, the only way out is, well... out. But you've got to put together a game plan that blasts you out of the rut. And put that game plan in motion.
IMMEDIATELY - IF NOT SOONER!
That means doing something different - and doing something different right now. If you truly want to escape the rut you're in, it's going to take a good bit of effort. And a healthy dose of dedication and focus as well. Truth be told, it's going to take just about everything you've got to get out of a rut and get your life moving in the right direction.
"Sometimes we know we are stuck; sometimes we don't. In both cases we have to do something."
Are you currently stuck in some kind of rut? Is there something (or maybe a lot of things) you would like to change about the life you're living? Then you need to step up, make some changes and start doing things is a different manner.
Let's face it; if you keep doing the same wrong things - you're going to keep getting the same wrong results. And youre going to stay stuck in the same wrong rut. Why not get fired up and find a way out; out of your old habits, out of your old routine and out of the same old, same old rut youre in?
And try something new.
By adopting a brand new approach to living, where you're willing to try something new, something fresh, maybe even something totally off-of-the-wall, something amazing will occur. Instead of getting the same boring results you've been getting for who knows how long, you unleash the wonderful magic you hold deep within.
Instead of being forever stuck in place, a remarkable change overtakes you. Everything you have ever wanted to do is suddenly doable. Anything you have ever dreamed about is instantly possible. Anything and everything you have dreamed of having and being is now well within your reach. By choosing a different attitude, a different approach, a different just about everything, your life becomes all that you have ever hoped it could be - and more.
The Bottom Line: Get out of the rut and get on with your life.
