Where you were yesterday is not where you’re supposed to be today. And in the future, you should be able to look back and say, “I have come a long way.”

That makes sense of your journey in life. It shows that you didn’t live your life wastefully, rather you utilized every bit of it.

However, in situations when you keep on feeling stuck without experiencing the taste of what it feels like to be on the other side, then you know you aren’t getting something right.

Sure, it’s never a situation you hoped for, but how long you remain in it depends on the measures you put in place.

A well defined thought backed up with solid actions, can make a huge difference between feeling stuck in life and feeling free and satisfied in life.

In other words, for you to feel free and satisfied without feeling stuck in life, you need to let go of certain things, accept you’re stuck, and take a bold step.

If that sounds overwhelming, don’t worry, I will break it down for you.

Let’s take our time as we get on with it.

4 reasons for feeling stuck in life

Below are four reasons for feeling stuck in life.

1. Trapped in a time frame (past)

Being the human that you’re, it’s not likely you won’t be tempted to look back at your past mistakes and failures, whether they were all your fault or not.

Unfortunately, what you fail to understand is that looking back at those mistakes and failures triggers worries without solutions.

As a result of that, you become prone to overthinking which affects every aspect of your life that is supposed to enhance your growth.

So, in order to escape from this, you need to focus your mind in the future and stop looking at the past. That’s not the way you’re heading.

But if you fix your mind in the past, you automatically trap yourself in that time frame. Therefore, you limit your chances of moving ahead.

2. Your physical and mental state

Now, this where the actions you take towards your goals in life will also determine if you will be able to free yourself from feeling stuck in life or not.

So, a healthy physical and mental state is required.

Endeavor to maintain a healthy fitness level, as this will determine your overall physical health condition.

But if you go contrary to that, your overall well-being will be seriously affected. The outcome: it could lead to little or no productivity.

Also, you should remember that your mood, behavior, and thought plays a huge role in your level of focus and productivity. And this makes your mental health very very important.

By maintaining a healthy mental state, you would be able to combat bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, and clinical disorder.

However, both your physical health and mental health should be in perfect condition, because they work hand-in-hand. None should be left out.

3. Sitting on a plateau

Despite the change you have experienced after a period of transformation, you still need to believe the fact that your best is yet to come.

This kind of thought prepares you for further growth so that you can move ahead and prevent the thought of feeling stuck.

There may be instances when you feel people think you’ve arrived, but the truth be told: as humans, you have a tendency to keep wanting more.

In that case, you will keep feeling stuck in life if you succumb to how far you think others perceive you’ve come. Sometimes, it’s even a lie you tell yourself.

But whatever the case, the truth is that you will always keep feeling stuck in life if you don’t break away from the lying thought of satisfaction you tell yourself.

4. Shutting down the chances of advancement

The chances of advancement come in various ways. Another thing that is certain is the fact that chances of advancement come to people differently.

Furthermore, the chances of advancement come in various stages of life. In other words, if you fail to capitalize on those in each stage of life, you create more chances of feeling stuck.

Chances for knowledge, learning from mistakes, utilizing opportunities, chances for growth, to mention but a few – are some of the chances of advancement.

Giving a shot at any of these chances of advancement can go long way in relieving you from feeling stuck in life.

But I will be lying to you by saying utilizing all of these chances of advancement doesn’t matter.

What you need to do

Below are things you need to do to stop yourself from feeling stuck in life.

1. Think only about the future

In as much as you failed or made some mistakes in the past, consider it as the past and move on without having to trap yourself in it.

Focus your thought in the future. This is guaranteed to give you focus as you find solutions that will enhance your aspects of life for growth.

2. Take your mental and physical health seriously

Remember that your mental and physical health plays a huge role in how your productivity turns out. So, don’t forget to work on it, too.

However, whatever way that will work for you in terms of maintaining a healthy physical and mental health, adopt it and stick with it. And remember that both are important.

3. Reject the lies of satisfaction

The lies of satisfaction you tell yourself and thoughts that people think you’ve arrived will make you prone to continue sitting on a plateau.

In that case, master the thought of knowing that your best is still yet to come, then you work towards the thought. This will help in relieving you from feeling stuck in life.

4. Utilize the chances of advancement

Master every aspect of the chances of advancement, and take note of when you should utilize any of any them. Do it concisely and make it a habit.

Note that the chances of advancement are broad, but a good place to start would be gaining more knowledge, learning from experience, utilizing opportunities, and growing yourself.

But always dig deeper to see what else you can utilize.
