What does a person do when they are stuck in a life where no matter what decision they make the outcome is always unpleasant?
Many people come to me with this problem.
What they discover is the reason they are stuck is because of the way they think about their problem.
They keep repeating the thinking that will keep them stuck, but they don’t see it.
The answer for them is in being able to see the same problem differently.
When they change their thinking and the way they see their problem that’s the moment they will feel free again.
Many people that feel stuck will be using dead-end thinking.
Dead-end thinking is when someone keeps leading themselves into a non-growth position where no learning takes place.
The foundation of this thinking is fear.
Let’s say someone is convinced they are in the wrong marriage, but they are afraid to leave because they are afraid to be alone.
Dead-end thinking would be to think about leaving which they won’t do due to their fear or stay and keep experiencing the same worries that they don’t want more fear.
They can cycle these two options until they are exhausted.
One answer to this kind of problem sits in their ability to answer a simple question.
This is a direct approach – If I become the very best of me what does my partner do? Do they stay the same or do they become loving and caring again?
Learning to discover if the relationship has the potential to add value to both people is one option.
An indirect approach – The other option is to learn how to become comfortable with being uncomfortable so you can break through your own limitations and move towards what you really want.
You see many people don’t like discomfort.
What they are not seeing is growth in any area of life always starts with a person feeling discomfort.
That ability to become comfortable with feeling uncomfortable will make difficult choices far easier.
When a person has fear in their decision-making mindset it makes taking action so much harder.
What would they do if the fear wasn’t there?
I see a lot of people who marry their partner for security and then wonder why the relationship has no energy, no passion and no attraction.
A person who marries for security is making that decision based on a fear.
What these people must do is find a way to ignite love and passion this means breaking through their own vulnerability.
You see the energy of true love and passion cannot exist without vulnerability and fearful people will want to avoid that.
Most people are on a quest to avoid vulnerability and so without knowing they are on a quest to kill their own love and passion.
Looking at vulnerability as bad is a way of thinking, but not the only way.
Personally, I see and teach how to experience vulnerability as a person’s greatest strength…
My quest with any client is to help them break through their fears whilst discovering the safest way forward.
This way they can learn the truth and free themselves either from limited thinking or situations that are not good for them.
FREEDOM from the problem is the mission, but are you ready to reclaim your life?
