80% Of People Feel Like They’re Stuck In A Rut.

1

As I was listening to the radio the other morning, the presenter announced that;

“80% of people feel like they’re stuck in a rut.”

Now, I don’t know where he was getting this figure from but it got me thinking; That’s a hell of a lot of dissatisfied people!
Looking back, I used to be in that 80%.
I was caught in the daily motion.
I’d get up at ridiculous o’clock, and commute in bumper to bumper in endless traffic. Haul myself into work with that feeling of dread. Only to spend my day with a bunch of people I didn’t particularly like. Where we had meetings about meetings. We filled out duplicitous paper work, for people to file away and never read. Always endlessly clock watching. Counting down the hours, minutes, until it was time to get back into my car, and drive home bumper to bumper in the never ending traffic! Haul myself into the house. Heating up last nights left over chili. Then slump in front of the TV, where I was barely fit to talk to my partner (who was in much the same state!) and watch some mind numbing crap until it was time to go back to bed, and do it all over again in the morning.

Rinse and repeat.

Rinse and repeat.
Then once a month, money would come into my bank account! Only for it to be direct debited back out the next day.

The cycle continued, month in month out, year in year out. Next thing you know a decade has gone by. Your waist band has increased, and your not quite sure who you really are anymore.
Yeah, I remember that 80% feeling!

Does this story seem all to familiar to you?

You know it doesn’t have to be this way?

For me something changed.

I had crossed over into the other 20%.

But how?

Where do you sit? Are you still in the 80% drudge, or have you moved into pastures  fresh and new?

Get Focused! How to Set & Achieve Any Goal You Want!

Lately, I’ve been experiencing some mental blocks. It was if I’d hit a wall, and I just couldn’t figure out where I was going wrong. Somewhere along the way, I took my eye of my focus, hit a couple of failures. I was spiraling into self-doubt and becoming demotivated! Drastic action was needed!

I decided to go back to basics. I started a morning ritual of listening to motivation material. Redressing some of the great motivational and inspiration speakers; Bob Proctor, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Esther Hicks, I was even listening to Oprah! (yikes!)

Then I found this video by John Assaraf. You may have watched John in Rhonda Byrnes film “The Secret”, he was the guy with the vision board.

I found John’s video to be a very useful tool, and it has helped me get back on track! I’d fallen foul of some limiting self- beliefs, and a few bad habits were starting to form around them! Yeah, I know it’s text book stuff. I was so busy working on my strategies and goals, that I’d let my basic mental house-keeping slip. A lesson for all of us: It doesn’t matter where you are on your journey towards you goals, every now and then we need to return to the basics.

I hope you too will find some value in John Assaraf’s videos.
