Why Do We Feel Stuck In Life?

If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

Your health? Your job? Your love life?

Close your eyes at this very moment and ask yourself this question with a clear mind. Chances are, you will most likely get a specific answer that reflects a deep-rooted problem.

Whether you’re struggling to perform better at work or feel like you’re drowning in your relationship, there’s a reason why you feel utterly powerless in a situation that can be turned around.

“Feeling stuck” is an indicator of a serious life crisis. Instead of wallowing in self-pity or wondering what could have been, practice positive mobility and motivate yourself to do more.

Let’s take a look at some major roadblocks that could be hindering your progress:

Fear of Change

Let’s take the case of a small-town girl who moves to the city for a high-profile job. Overwhelmed with a dramatic lifestyle change, she could easily crash and burn, or alternatively rise to the occasion and discover her true potential.

You see, the secret to success lies in making smart choices and realizing that you have the power to control the direction of your life.

Self-awareness stands at the center of self-empowerment. If you’re not able to embrace change and respond to the rhythm of life, you could miss out on some exciting opportunities that could have catapulted your career.

It’s a blink and miss world, so keep an open mind and always follow your heart.


If you truly want something, you don’t put it off another second—let alone a day, month or year. Instead of claiming to love something or someone, make a consistent effort to show it.

Want to write a book? Join a sports team? Shoot a film? Get married?

Avoid making excuses and ask yourself where your priorities really lie. If you’re motivated enough to go the distance, there’s no limit to what you can achieve!

Negative Influence

Sometimes, you become a prisoner of your own mind and obsess over all the things that could possibly go wrong before even taking the first step.

This is often a direct result of a negative social network that puts you down and crushes your self-esteem. Bitter about their own failures, these individuals have a tendency to trample all over your dreams and make you believe you’re not capable of anything.

If you want to succeed, surround yourself with positive people who believe in you as much as they believe in themselves.

At the end of the day, success and happiness is a state of mind. Empower yourself with positive thoughts and set achievable goals each day. For more motivational advice, see Hall of Fame Speaker Steve Rizzo in action and Get Your SHIFT Together!
