Am I Depressed Or Lazy Or Am I Just Spinning My Wheels? How Do I Stop?
Have you ever heard yourself saying “I am Spinning My Wheels?” I would hazard a guess to say everyone has done exactly this at some time in their life. It is very difficult to know what to do when you’re feeling stuck in life, feeling trapped in your own mind or maybe feeling trapped in a relationship or in a job with no progression. It could be that you are stuck in a job and your depressed and can’t get out.
Maybe you are asking yourself the question “why am i so unhappy with my life.” Some people have a terrible sensation of feeling stuck in a relationship and being trapped at home. At times it can seem like life is pointless and empty. Some people can even get to a point where they think that life is pointless why live. What to do when you feel like your life has no meaning? The issue here is that you can start thinking all these things and get absolutely stuck in your mind like a hamster going round and round in his exercise wheel.
If you are feeling stuck in your life, stalled in your progression, it can be extremely exasperating. You may even be thinking “I’ve been wasting my time. “ This is the sensation of spinning your wheels. It could be spiritually, mentally, career wise, emotionally even physically. There are definite ways to get past these non-effective stages in your life.
Here are a few basic steps of the process:
Recognize And Accept: First you really need to face the truth mirror. Understand that you have stalled and you acknowledge the emotion that put you there as well as take responsibility for you actions and feelings.
Slow Down: Fear may also kick in. Take a breath, time to process the thoughts, emotions and events surrounding your issues. You do not need to instantaneously react. Take a little time to bolster yourself and focus on some positive attributes. We all have them. You just need to look deep enough.
Take Mental and Emotional Inventory: You have faced your spinning wheels and the darker side of your life. Bravo! Consider what is holding you back. Most likely the answer will be your own belief system. Once you can see some clarity around this step you are almost there.
Set a New Focus: You have faced the dragon now it is time to redirect your efforts. Take the time to learn how to relax. Mediation, deep breathing, exercise, seek mentoring (if needed) and healthy eating can calm you and allow you to see the trees as opposed to the forest as well as the path that leads you out. Basically these activities will help you live in the present, the now, and take back control of the monkey mind.

The “First” Step: Feel the fear and do it anyway. Sounds easy and simple and at the same time “not so much”. The only and I mean only way out of spinning your wheels and being stuck is Action. You have what it takes to just that. Move! You have looked at where you are and most probably where you want to be so you have the road map to get there. Remember the longest journey starts with the first step. Then the next and the next and so forth! Most do not happen overnight. Do not forget to enjoy the scenery on the way.
Be Your Own Hero: Put on your armor and carry a shield. Fear can creep back in. It is always there in the back of your mind. Remember the old acronym, False Evidence Appearing Real. None of it is real. You must slug on. It may seem a bit cruel “get over it”.
