10 steps to gain clarity when you’re feeling stuck

Do you feel like you lack clarity and direction? Whether you’ve lost yourself in fear or old limiting patterns that don’t serve you or simply just feel a bit stuck at the moment, you are not alone. All of us feel lost and stuck at some point in our lives. Believe me, I’ve surely been there too (multiple times!!). I’ve learned that the key is to get back to empowered focus and get crystal clear on where you want to go and take inspired action from that state of being.

Firstly!! Just because you don’t have everything figured out doesn’t mean that you’re a failure or that you’re missing out, feeling stuck actually holds an important message. It just means that you can choose to answer and move through a perhaps life-changing process of transformation. Maybe everything feels confusing right now but even a complete mess can actually be something empowering. It can be an opportunity for you to get to know yourself and your desires in a deeper way. 

It’s all really a matter of perspective and how you feel inside about what you’re going through, what you’re feeling, and too really examine what’s going on. I know for a fact that every single time I’ve felt stuck or that I lost a sense of clarity, it’s been absolutely crucial to give myself some space, help, and support to grow through it. Here are 10 steps that will remind you who you truly are, and what you really want to do so you can find clarity on what step to take next!

Take your time to read all this and reflect!

1. Get to know what’s really going on within 

Embrace alone time in solitude in order to connect with yourself in a deeper sense. It is so important to get comfortable in your own skin, learn to enjoy hanging out with no one but yourself, and what really lives inside of you is key for personal growth and transformation. This is a time to allow yourself to slow down and tune inwards in order to connect with your heart’s voice. What’s really going on inside of you and WHY is it that you’re feeling stuck? 

2. Get crystal clear on your inner core values 

Knowing your inner core values will always guide your actions and give you inner peace. This is about all the things that really matter to you. Are you LIVING your values both personally and professionally on your own terms or are you living from someone else’s? Getting clear on this can make you feel uncomfortable if you’re not in alignment – that’s okay. Give yourself some time to reflect and write down your three most important core values in life.

3. Connect with your dreams and dream big 

What kinds of dreams do you have? In your dream world of creation, what would you love to be, have, or do and create in your life, career, and business? What kind of impact do you want to have in the world? Once you reconnect with your dreams, you’ll have the desire and inspiration to begin to take action and suddenly you will have found yourself again. Grab a piece of paper or journal and get clear on your VISION.

4. Quiet your mind and let your heart speak 

Spend some alone time in nature, or give yourself a powerful and life-changing gift and start a daily meditation practice. Just become present and forget about the past and just lose yourself in the now to connect with your vision and what you truly would love to create. When you find this peaceful and calm spot within you of inner peace, you will be able to connect with your true heart desires. What does your HEART say?

5. Do more of the things that lights you up

As we grow up, we often lose sight of how freaking amazing life can be because we get busy with all the responsibilities and all the things “we have to do”. It’s time to reconnect with all the things you love that lights you up and to take action from that place of being.  This is about allowing yourself to be led by JOY and your creative power and it is a way to find out what you’re most passionate about. What totally lights you up from within?  

6. Make self-care and fierce self-love a priority 

It’s a common misbelief that it’s selfish to take the time to take care of yourself. Truth is, you will always be a way more healthy, loving, and empowered human being not only to yourself but for the whole world if and when you feel amazing from the inside out. Make sure to cover all the basics such as nourishing foods, exercise and moving your body, and plenty of REST in order for you to feel good and stay in balance. 

7. Let go of overwhelm and be a conscious creator

Know that you have the power to BE, have, and do anything you desire and dream of. In other words, whatever you see in your vision is possible for you – if you decide to go for it. Sometimes the feeling of being stuck is overwhelming and you forget that you actually get to choose what thoughts you feed your mind with and how you want to feel. If you’re feeling stuck, that’s just a very clear sign from your heart saying that it wants to get back in alignment. 

8. Be brave and step outside your comfort zone 

Again, when you feel stuck, it just means that something is off – that you have the power to change. Inner growth and personal transformation need your dedication and committed work, it requires you to become uncomfortable in order to change and take new actions. Challenge yourself to do that thing that will take you outside of your familiar and safe space so you can grow, expand and evolve. What’s the first thing that came to mind for you? Go DO that thing!

9. Define what success really means to you 

Know your ego and become comfortable with the fact that your ego can co-exist with your true spirit (the ego is just a voice in your head). What does success look like and what does it FEEL like for you? You get to create your own definition of how you want to design your life, career and build your business. Don’t lose yourself in a trap of someone else´s definition of what success really means. Instead – make sure to find and get clear on your own meaning!

10. Ask for help – you don’t have to work it all out on your own

Reach out and ask for help and support, allow yourself to be your most authentically empowered you. Sometimes simply having a chat with someone can provide the insight you need to take the next step and move forward with ease. Whether it’s a coach, mentor, a beloved friend, or the Universe – ASK for help and be open for someone to mirror you and to get the guidance and tools that come your way. Who can you reach out to for help today?

Some final thoughts for you!

Remember that feeling lost and stuck doesn’t have to be a “bad” thing. The big question is what you are going to do about it! It’s an opportunity for you to get to know yourself better, to allow yourself to grow and expand and take things further.  Switch your mindset from overwhelm to calm and TRUST that something better is around the corner – if you let it.
