How To Overcome What’s Keeping You Stuck
“Now I can just be… it’s almost like being free.”
Today we are talking about what I often refer to as “junk in life.” We’ll all have junk. Here’s what it looks like:
- Worry – about our work, families, kids, money, deadlines…
- Fighting or disunity in our marriages, friendships
- Feeling not good enough
- Needing to be right
- Being self-centered
- Fearing failure or fearing too much in general
- Striving and trying to get others to approve of us
- Needing to be in control
- Feeling responsible for others
- Feeling guilty
- Getting offended easily
That list I just read may be some of junk in your life, or maybe it’s other stuff…The problem is that it holds us back until we gain perspective on it. Today we’re not staying focused on the junk, but taking about how to overcome it…NOT putting a bandaid on it, or finding distractions, but taking the steps to get past it.
Which is why we have a special guest on today! Someone who can speak to getting unstuck, and starting the process of overcoming this kind of junk. Our guest is a small business owner, a fantastic leader, husband and father.
Getting past the junk…with Ryan Albritton:
Chris LoCurto: What “Aha moment” did you have that changed your actions or thought process?
Ryan Abritton: When I recognize them coming up, I realize now to stop myself and don’t lose worth in that moment. Don’t lose control and let those lies creep in. I don’t try to self protect by losing the control. So that was really probably the biggest Aha is I don’t need to self protect. You know, in those moments I mean that those are lies. That’s not true. Calm down and gaining perspective on whatever situation is going on.
Chris LoCurto: So talk about the self protection because, if I would have pointed out self protection to you before a year ago, would you have seen it or believed it like you do now?
Ryan Abritton: No.
Chris LoCurto: People don’t believe that they self protect. I mean we and a lot of folks coming in. Did you know that you were lying to yourself before coming in?
Ryan Abritton: No Way. You don’t think of it as lies…
Chris LoCurto: So there’s something I want to hit. Well let me ask this. What do you think is the greatest change you see in you?
Ryan Abritton: The greatest change in me I think is being happy and accountable and calm…and the level of frustration is just almost obsolete. I mean, that’s probably the biggest thing. You can’t know how frustrated you are until you go through Next Level Life. I mean really. I mean you just don’t even know it. Now I see how I really do this. Now I can just be… It’s almost like being free….keep reading our interview here.
