Feeling Stuck? Tips To Get You Moving Again

It’s very easy to get stuck when you start thinking about HOW you will achieve something.

I want to do X but I can’t see HOW!  Is the most common complaint I come across.

Another name for ‘how’ is ‘the hindering how’.

As explained in my book - 7 Keys For Success Beyond Chance – ‘The How’ is not your biggest problem.

Staying true and focused on your desired outcome is the biggest challenge, even if you cannot see ‘how’.

When you stay true and focused on your stated desire, it will be delivered to you in ways you cannot even imagine or predict.


I am a member of the Barclays Business club. I have had the opportunity to be a speaker at our clubs seminars. I always want to connect with business development managers of other Barclays Business clubs. This often leads to invitations to speak at upcoming meetings and seminars.

One time there was a trade fair at Sarit Centre, organized by the club for its members. During the opening ceremony I was asked to give a vote of thanks on behalf of the club members.  The audience was impressed by what I said. In the audience were a number of business development managers! A number came to me and asked me for my card. One of them invited me, on the spot, to speak at an upcoming seminar!

What’s amazing is the effortlessness of the flow of events. I could not have orchestrated the matrix of events that led to the achievement of my desired outcome.


Obviously you must take action.

The key here is all about what kind of action you take.

Take the action in the following ways:

The Next Step

Look the last 5 letters of the word ATTRACTION, they spell ACTION. When you take action, any action that is a step towards your desired goal, you start drawing to yourself what you need to achieve it. So the place to begin is to take the obvious, next logical step.

Take Inspired Action

I believe Inspiration is like a signal with an important message: your request has just been processed! That explains the moment of clarity that accompanies a flash of an inspired idea. Inspiration is also like a wave – ride the wave of an inspiration before it loses momentum. So when Inspiration strikes, answer its call.



Write down the idea, call that person, go see that place …

Opportunities Galore

There is a common myth that has gained currency i.e.  OPPORTUNITY IS NOWHERE. The truth is, in our midst OPPORTUNITY IS NOW HERE. There are opportunities galore for moving forward but they are hidden in plain sight. You must think different and do different to see them. Be prepared for ‘your’ opportunity. Like a bus or matatu, it is on its way. You had better be ready to board when it stops at your stage. Therefore when an opportunity presents itself, grab it. Remember the definition of Luck: it’s is the meeting point of preparedness and opportunity.
