Get out of your rut by reframing the situation
To Reframe– reframing a situation means to take a situation and think of it in a positive way. For more in depth information on reframing check out a post I wrote called ‘Find Opportunity In Any Situation‘
Everyone goes through rough times but it’s how we deal with those moments that we have control of. If we want something we must go up and get it. In case you happen to be going through one of those hard times, here is a new creative way to help you get out that rut and jumpstart your path to success!
Below is a worksheet that I made where you can write down the things that are holding you back and reframe the situation to help propel you forward! Sometimes we just need to put it right in front of our face! I suggest taping this to your mirror when you are done as a reminder or keeping it somewhere you can look at it.
Copy and past the text and fill out the guide below!
What are three qualities you have that hold you back? Think of three things that you say to your self are reasons why you cannot achieve whatever it is your goals are. For example: I’m too nice, I’m not good enough, I get stressed easily, I’m not tall enough, etc.
Now below write down why you feel these qualities hold you back.
Now Let’s reframe it!
Write down how those three negative qualities can be positive qualities.
Negative quality: I’m too nice.
Reframed to positive: Being nice is an amazing quality that inspires others to be better and make peoples days better. Being nice can be used to my advantage and help me get to where I want to be by making others happy and comfortable.
Now that you have identified what you feel holds yourself back and reframed the situation to realize that “weakness” can be turned into strength. Write down one to two (or more) easy ways to implement these new positive thoughts into your lifestyle.
Negative: I’m too nice
Reframed: Being nice is an amazing quality that inspires others to be better and make peoples days better. Being nice can be used to my advantage and help me get to where I want to be by making others happy and comfortable.
Lifestyle: I am going to write affirmations each day about how I make others happy and that I attract positivity to me. I am not going to get down on myself when I feel that I am overextending myself, instead I am going to recognize why I feel that way and work to learn how to say no sometimes.
