There is nothing exciting, appealing or comfortable about being stuck!! The word generates images of distress, frustration, anxiety, loss. And yet, without arriving at a place where your life, your business, or your endeavors simply cannot flow as usual, you will never discover the unknown. The truth is, you are a creature of habit, accustomed to the predictable routines and regularity of life. As long as there remains the ability to move in the familiar, that is where you will exist. When a crisis or a roadblock emerges, you are forced to do something different; to think outside the box, to try another route, to do something you've never done before, to explore the other alternatives. 

Getting in the stuck mode may often prove to be a blessing in disguise if one is willing to shift one's perspective. It is in this zone that your creative capacity is expanded, your thought process becomes stimulated and your potentials become activated. When you find yourself in the stuck mode, you have the extraordinary opportunity to begin discovering and exploring new sources and resources you might never before have known to exist. Getting stuck could translate to a whole new life and a whole new world, but while navigating through this process, you are going to need to have somethings in place to give you some staying power.
