BEING STUCK IN A RUT CAN LITERALLY END YOUR LIFE...

I recently discovered an article at About.com entitled, “Hurdles to Wellness:Childhood Imprinting,” which is posted below...this article addresses beliefs I have had my entire life...that what you feel emotionally and spiritually can be 100% of what you feel physically and, if negative, will manifest itself in your body in negative ways:


"Many people stay in jobs or relationships where they are unhappy out of primal fears of survival. For these individuals it is nearly impossible to trust that they will be taken care of and that there may very well be a better opportunity around the corner. Learning to TRUST and SURRENDER are big hurdles to overcome. Although they feel underpaid or are grossly unsatisfied with employment, the threat of an unknown future keeps them frozen in the status quo. When we become fear-frozen in our putrid situations it should be no surprise when sickness surfaces. Ill-nurturing environments will affect our health and well-being. Sickness and pain in our bodies are signs telling us that we cannot be "well" while remaining in toxic relationships or continue working under poor conditions.

Sickness Can Be Our Hero, rescuing us from places and situations we don't what to be in.

A person may very well become so ill that they can no longer work his job and he will find himself unemployed. A few years ago I met a woman who was no longer able to work because her body had become consumed by a rare cancer. Although she was unhappy to be so ill, she wasn't completely miserable. She was greatly relieved that she no longer had to go to work every day and do a job she disliked. Her illness also afforded her a monthly disability check. Not working allowed her time to take up endeavors that suited her better than her old job ever did. A few months before she died she told me that she felt she had what it took to beat the cancer that was eroding her body. In fact, she had experienced remission a few times. But what haunted her most as each remission occurred was a gnawing fear deep inside that she might get well and that her disability checks would stop coming. Those checks afforded her the luxury to spend her days doing the things she enjoyed doing the most. Hers was a situation where her cancerous body allowed her an avenue to leave a job she despised and felt imprisoned by. She didn't have the fortitude to leave on her own. Instead, a deadly illness was her get-out-of-jail card. When the woman crossed over I was not convinced that cancer is what took her life, I feel it may have been her fears. Perhaps it was the physical body itself that she really wanted to leave behind.”

Every time I have put myself into situations I have not felt good about and have not pulled myself out of them in time or have believed I did not deserve any better, I would come down with an affliction or disease (dis-ease). I then went a step further and realized that whenever I was feeling as though I was not making any progress toward my positive goals and changes in life it was because I was feeling “stuck” in a rut, which is actually the cause of so many negative influences in our lives. This next article by Hannah McNamara entitled, “Are You Stuck In a Rut? Tips on Motivation and Breaking Free,” is amazing. She really leads you to identify how to break free of the feeling of being in a “rut” and how to identify it. When you realize things that are happening to you, i.e. bringing the subcounsious thoughts to the conscious mind, you can then take action toward correction and positive change:

How often do you leap out of bed excited about what the day will bring?
Do you know exactly what you'll be doing next week - because it's exactly the same as what you did this week? Could you be suffering from SIAR Syndrome?
It's the hidden syndrome that can leave you tired, listless and frustrated. It strikes down both the young and the old, the rich and the poor. Talked about in hushed tones with trusted confidantes, it's the affliction that leaves victims asking, "Why me?"


But for sufferers, there is light at the end of the tunnel because SIAR Syndrome can be avoided and its effects eliminated. If the following sounds familiar, you too could be a sufferer without even realising it: When your friends ask you what you're up to, do you reply with something along the lines of "Oh, you know, same old, same old"? If doing the same thing over and over again is making you happy, great! But if it's not, maybe now's the time to do something about it, because the chances are you've caught it -SIAR, or Stuck-In-A-Rut Syndrome.


Breaking out of a rut can be tricky. It can mean changing habits, making uncomfortable decisions and committing to doing things differently. But it can also be liberating, invigorating and you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner!


Whether you're stuck in a rut at work or in your personal life, it's worth bearing in mind this quote from well-known author and speaker on personal development, Anthony Robbins:


"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten."
How many times do we do the same things over and over again and expect to get different results? In business, we might, for example, keep doing the same Marketing we've always done, yet expect the results to be better than they were last time. In our personal lives, we might walk into the same set of circumstances we've had before, yet expect things to be better this time.


But there is something even worse than being a sufferer of SIAR Syndrome...being a carrier. You know the people I'm talking about, don't you? "That'll never work" and "play it safe" are some of their favourite sayings. Stuck in a rut themselves, they can't bear the thought that someone else might break free of it. But with so many people stuck in a rut, surely it should have some good points, shouldn't it?
Let's have a look at the Pro's and Con's of being stuck in a rut:


Pros:
  • It's comfortable
  • It doesn't take much effort
  • You know what to expect
  • It's easy to surround yourself with like-minded people
  • There's less chance of making a mistake

Cons:
  • It makes life boring and predictable
  • You feel that life is passing you by
  • It can leave you wondering where your life has gone
  • You could look back and wonder about the what-if's
  • It can be scary even thinking about breaking out

It's worth taking some time out to think about some idea of your goals both personally and professionally. Perhaps you've already got some plans in place setting out what you'll get done this year, next year and possibly for the next 5, 10 or 20 years.


Do any of them involve changing something? Do ALL of them involve changing something? Does it make you excited or nervous? A way to tackle nerves is to break the change down into its component parts to discover exactly what it is that's making you nervous. Sometimes nerves can kick in when you're doing something that you've never done before and that can lead to procrastination, one of the symptoms of SIAR syndrome. Once you know exactly what's making you nervous, dig deeper and ask yourself "what is it about xxxx that's making me nervous?" Then you'll be able to think about ways of overcoming it.
Interestingly enough, the same symptoms of nerves - shortness of breath, racing heart beat and thinking fast - are the exact same symptoms of excitement. It's all down to how you frame them in your mind. Next time you think you're nervous, tell yourself it's excitement and you'll make the experience a whole lot more enjoyable! You might even crack a smile!


Breaking out of a rut is a lot easier when you've got someone guiding you through it. Working with a life coach or business coach is a little like working with a personal trainer - your coach will motivate and push you to do more than you'd do alone. Plus, because they're outside of your normal circle of friends and contacts they can offer a fresh perspective on things. Break free!! Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/148577.”
