How to Move Forward

Dear Coach Louise,

How do I get unstuck? I want to be happy, but my mind keeps going back to all the reasons why I should stay stuck. Amber

Dear Amber,

When we conquer fears, break habits, change jobs, or make life changes we start by asking questions.  Thank you for asking.

The mind is very powerful.  It helps to understand how it works. There are two parts to the mind, the subconscious and the conscious. When you wrote this you were in your conscious mind.  The subconscious mind is the part of you that keeps playing back the old tapes. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between real and imagined. Every time you go back to replaying the thoughts which made you stay stuck, the subconscious mind locks these thoughts in a little deeper.  It is like taking a highlighter pen and highlighting the same passage in a book over and over.  It becomes stronger and stronger in your mind. Or it is like digging a hole. Every time you replay you dig a little deeper. Until it is hard to get out.

How do you get unstuck? Start by creating a new story of moving forward with new thoughts. Write it down. When you hear your mind playing old tapes, say STOP. Say it out loud, just for fun. Say Stop making this your new habit.  Then the second part of your new habit is read your new story.  Like affirmations, reading this story will welcome change into your life. By welcoming I mean it opens the door for change to enter.

Visualize your new story. Visualizing is a powerful tool for taking it deeper into your subconscious mind.

Instead of being stuck in your old thoughts, you will feel a shift in your thinking to: What if? What if you made a change? What are the possibilities?  What are the benefits? Wallace Wattles wrote in the Secret to Getting What You Want “Man can form things in his thoughts, and, by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the things he thinks about to be created.”

Happiness is a choice.  A commitment.  Like quitting smoking, no one can make you quit; you have to do it on your own.

Read  positive books and listen to audio CD’s about success stories of people getting unstuck.  Listen to positive radio shows. Choose to be around positive people who are moving forward in their lives. Hire a coach to help you gain clarity.

Amber you can do it. Just say yes. Yes is a high-energy word. When you say yes to life, yes to change, your energy increases. So say Stop to the old tapes in your mind and Yes to life.  I believe in you, Coach Louise  Rouse    P.S. The name was changed
