I want to start off with this quote by Recovery Experts:
“Those who move forward with a happy spirit will find that things always work out.” -Recoveryexperts.com
Keep this in mind when it comes to understand an important lesson in life about trying to move forward. I want to start off by asking you this question:
Who or what has you stuck in the position you are in right now?
The person or thing that has you stuck in the position you are in can vary depend on what role they are playing. I want to share with you three facts:
- The person or thing has you stuck where you are because you allowed for them to keep you where you are right now.
- You cannot go anywhere if you are continuing to stick with and have that person or thing who is constantly keeping you from moving forward.
- In some cases, it can be yourself that is keeping yourself stuck because of your negative thoughts and actions.
If you finding yourself stuck, the only person you can blame for all of this is yourself.
Who or what are you waiting on to start moving forward?
This is important for you to know because it is vital for you to begin moving forward. I want to share with you three more facts:
- Nobody or nothing can move forward in your life unless you start the process and make the first step or move.
- Waiting on somebody or something to help you move forward can delay your progress and prevent you from moving when the time is right.
- For each day you allow to pass by is another day wasted where you could have started to move forward in achieving your goals and dreams.
The only person that will ultimately receive the blame if you are waiting on somebody or something to help you move forward is yourself.
What will happen next when you start to move forward?
There are a lot of unknowns with this question because the unknown can be just about anything. Here are three additional facts that you need to know:
- Nobody can fully inform or prepare you for what is next because each experience is differs with the people and things involved.
- People and things will come and go as you move forward because they all will serve a particular purpose in your journey.
- There will be unknowns, but it will be your faith in yourself, your higher power, and the resources available to you that will help you navigate through the journey.
Your first step forward marks the beginning of you letting go of the past, accepting what is in front of you, and moving forward to what life has to offer you. If you are going to move forward, this last question below will give you the tools.
