When You’re Stuck

Life is a series of adventures. It’s about knowing when to take a step in the right direction. It’s also about taking a risk even when the possibility of failure looms over your head.

Pursuing your passion is one of life’s greatest decisions, but it’s also one of the hardest to make and the most difficult to stay on course with.

I say this because contrary to what you visually see in media, becoming successful is not an easy feat. People have the misconception that it happens overnight and when it doesn’t. It’s so easy to give up. Especially when you’ve been misinformed about the process.

Just before entering the Sandbox Beach Club, Accra.

I’ve had my fair share of moments when I wanted to give up on the desires of my heart. Facing many obstacles is surely a catalyst to why most people feel like giving up.

There were a few months when I was in a position of being stuck in a place I didn’t want to to be. Partly my own fault and partly of circumstances beyond my control. How many times have you felt stuck? Were you able to assess the situation as to why you were caught in that place?

If there is one thing I have learned from being stuck, it’s that it gives you the chance to do a couple of things.

First, assess the situation and second, ask questions that help you figure out how in the world you’re going to get yourself out of the mess. Once you do, you can begin moving towards your destiny.

Being stuck is an opportunity for you to take stock of where you are, what you’ve done and how your own shortcomings may have contributed to being stuck.

Laughter heals the soul in times of trouble.

So how do you get out of it? Take a moment to look back and understand that all the choices you made are what got you here.
Most of us hate to admit it, but you can usually trace the steps as to how you ended up where you are.

Today I’m in a happier place and clearly focused on not making the same errors I did in the past in order to build a great future. I’m doing all of that while living this adventure called life.
