Whenever you are on a path of transformation or in uncharted territory, there’s going to come a time where you feel like you hit a brick wall or go on a downward spiral. In these moments, you start to doubt what you’re doing, things aren’t working and one thought leads to another.
Successful people have learned that despite the feeling of wanting to quit and the feeling of inadequacy how to continue to persevere with determination. So how do we muster up the courage to pick ourselves up, lift ourselves up to keep moving forward? What I like to call an upward spiral!!!
I have a technique called Catch Yourself, Check Yourself.
Catch Yourself Stop the bleeding. There is a certain pattern of thoughts you have, your body language and the words you use. Most of the time during a downward spiral, there are specific thoughts that go through your mind, your body has a specific posture, and the words you use tend to focus on your weaknesses, things not working or not feeling good enough. Identify what these are for you.
Next, Check Yourself The same way negative thoughts put us in a downward spiral, positive and empowering thoughts put is in an upward spiral. When you are confident, you have specific thoughts, posture and speech that go along with it. Identify and know what your top five strengths are and lead with your strengths.
Raise the bar and your standard. Ask yourself empowering questions. Soak in empowering videos, books, audios, whatever shifts your thoughts to feeling good about yourself and that you will figure it out.
Also, if you’re really struggling to reach out to people you know and trust. That’s what makes us human. We all need to connect. Plus, two-minds are better than one. Brainstorming and collaborating with others helps you get unstuck and create something even more magical.
Remember, going through transitions and embarking on uncharted territory takes courage and bravery. Be compassionate with yourself as you explore and experiment. Be patience and stay flexible.
