5 Ways To Get Out Of Your Own Way

We’ve all been there; When you subconsciously know you’re holding yourself back. If you’re at the point where you’re able to acknowledge it, congratulations! you’re moving towards the right direction. So what’s next: How do you move on from that? How can we begin to work towards our greatest potential?

#1 Loose up!

Bruce Lee once said: “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” let that marinate in your mind for a moment and adapt this analogy into your life.

#2 Get Out of Your head

Spend less time overthinking your life away. You waste so much time being overanalytical or too hard on yourself that you force yourself into a blank space. Ultimately that’s what you’re trying to avoid. Spend less time in your head and more time in the now.

How to get out of your own way

#3 Come up with a 30-day plan

Get your mind and body used to new *healthy* habits. Maybe you might want to actually go to bed an hour earlier than usual. Eat or drink healthier and maybe start exercising. Choose whatever you want! The only rule is You MUST stick to it.

#4 Just do It

Limit the number of times you talk yourself out of things. Just take the plunge and think about it later. Trust me, it’s better than asking yourself a thousand ‘what if’s‘.

#5 Try something new

Always be open to being inspired. Maybe there’s a spa you bookmarked on Yelp. Why not pay it a visit? take a walk around your neighborhood every Sunday afternoon. It could be something as small as eating a banana every morning instead of a McGriddle. Start making smaller changes and you will be receptive to bigger changes.
