Have you lost your edge? Are you uninspired and lacking energy?
Chances are, you’re suffering from feeling stuck. People feel their best and most creative when their focus and productivity are free-flowing. Conversely, when they feel stuck they don’t have the best outlook on life.
Co-founder of Wild Creations Rhett Power says, “First, frustration sets in and maybe even a bit of fear. No one wants to be in a place of listlessness and lagging energy. You’re uninspired and it shows. And if you’re an entrepreneur, you can’t do that for long periods and expect your business to grow. How can you get out of this place?”
Here are seven steps to help you get your mojo back:
- Nurture your creativity.
“Creative people work with intense energy and focus, but then step back for nurturing time. Perhaps you’re not stuck, just at rest. Use that. When you rest—truly rest. Don’t fill your time with purposeless activity just because you’re anxious about your productivity.”
- Write it down.
Whether or not you’re creative or stuck, active or resting, make a commitment to yourself to journal every single day. Just fifteen minutes each morning, or during your most productive time of the day, will work wonders for helping you get the juices flowing again.
“Journaling helps identify things that block you as well as what excites and stimulates you. Creativity doesn’t appear out of nowhere—journaling provides an avenue of discovery. Use word prompts for your journaling, keep them on little slips of paper in a box, and take one out each morning and write or draw for the entire 15 minutes.”
Just remember that this is about putting pen to paper, so don’t worry about quality or consistency, or even about completing your thoughts. This one is just for you.
