I have some good momentum going in an area of my life where I’d been pretty stagnant. It feels awesome to be back in the flow, and also a bit scary that things could go off the rails again.
Two questions I remind my clients to use whenever they feel stuck are “What’s my very first step?” and “What’s my very next step?” These questions are foolproof tools to get things moving.
While it’s exhilarating to be in the flow, it can also be tempting to ease up on the gas when you are. You might tend to rest on your laurels and think that the kick-start you gave yourself is enough. It isn’t. You need to constantly feed the machine.
This isn’t to say you need to have all systems ago all the time, however you do want to be sure you’re taking some form of consistent action that is aligned with your ultimate goal. This way, you invite the universe to stay on the dance floor with you.
Let’s say you’re working on improving your financial health, consistent action can be something as simple as reviewing your credit card statement each month to check for erroneous charges.

These small steps can be enough to let the universe know you’re still plugged in; still committed to the goal; still eager to dance.
Thinking that you must make huge strides in order to make any headway will likely keep you stuck and spinning your wheels.
So here’s your challenge for this week:
- Identify one area of your life where you’d like to create some momentum.
- Brainstorm a list of five small actions you can take to align with that goal.
- Choose one action from the list and move on it today.
- Wash, rinse, repeat. 🙂
And until next week, keep taking those steps to Live Out Loud.
