Feeling stuck or in a rut? Believe me; I’ve been there!

Despite what most people think, it’s common for many of us to feel stuck in life. Whether it be feeling like every day seems the same, unmotivated, or unfulfilled, these experiences can provide a lot of growth and value.

In the past, I would get frustrated with myself because I knew I felt emotions that made me feel limited inside. I knew some habits weren’t serving me, but I didn’t know how to change them. Or I knew a change in life was needed but didn’t know my next best move.

Have you ever felt like this before? The good news is these feelings are normal as you progress in your life journey toward success, so have some self-compassion for yourself. Even noticing feelings of “stuckness” and ruts is the first step to achieving a personal breakthrough in your life.

After all, how do you expect to make changes in your life if you don’t know that you need to? These can be uncomfortable moments and emotions but pivotal ones because many of us in life tend to remain so unconscious of these feelings that we continue to stay stuck.

“When you are tempted to give up, your breakthrough is probably just around the corner.” – Joyce Meyer

Personal breakthroughs can be powerful. But before you can create one, feelings of discontent and ruts are prerequisites. So don’t punish or fight yourself for feeling like this. Instead, understand that this is a part of your journey.

Instead, become aware of these feelings and know that these emotions are guiding you toward your goals and dreams if you can change your perspective of them. These are opportunities in life where your soul is preparing you for a change that will require you to rise to new levels in your life.

In the words of Joyce Meyer, “I wonder how many times people give up just before a breakthrough – when they are on the very brink of success.”

Your personal breakthrough could very well be around the corner.

Here are three signs that you might be headed toward a personal breakthrough in your life:

1. You notice thoughts that no longer serve you

Noticing thoughts that no longer serve you is pivotal for your growth because you’ve gained the awareness to pull yourself out of the story you’ve been telling yourself – which could be untrue or exaggerated as our emotions tend to lead us to believe.

In this case, it could be a rumination of negative thoughts that no longer serve how you feel internally.

You begin to realize that the thoughts of everything you feel you lack no longer serve your future self. Or regrets of something you did in the past that you now realize is something you can’t change. All you can do is focus on the next best step or thought you could take
