Get Unstuck | Get Into Motion

by Marcus

Do you ever feel totally and completely STUCK?

You have big dreams, huge goals, and have achieved clarity (if you don’t have clarity, download “The Clarity Cheat Sheet” here) about WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.

You know you want to accomplish great things and you know at the core of your being that you’re perfectly capable of achieving whatever you want in life and business, but – for whatever reason – you keep floundering around in a whirlpool of inactivity that leaves you paralyzed and not doing anything about it.

Sound familiar?

Does this resonate with where you’ve been . . . or perhaps where you are right now?

I get it. Been there done that.

And it doesn’t feel good.

Being “stuck” completely steals your joy, your confidence, your belief, your excitement and your commitment.

But the great news?


Based on my own personal and professional experiences, and the endless number of clients and team members I’ve helped move from STUCK to SOARING, here are a few of my thoughts on the matter, and some tips on how you can do something RIGHT NOW to get IN MOTION and free yourself from the quagmire of “ick” that’s stifling your progress, creativity, and success:



Yes. Take a step. Any step. In any direction. That’s it. There’s not a “perfect” step, just a FIRST step.

Be bold. Be committed. And just step.

It doesn’t matter if you’re taking the “right” step or not. The important thing is the forward-moving action that comes with taking a step.

All you have to do is start. Somewhere. Anywhere.

Fact: With each new step – no matter how big or small – you’ll begin to create an underlying energy that will result in forward-moving momentum that will soon grow and take on a life of its own. Once it’s underway, you won’t be able to stop it and unexpected opportunities – opportunities that you could never have imagined would be a part of YOUR reality – will begin to show up and delight you. They may not even be opportunities that you dreamed of or thought of, but NEW opportunities that were destined to be in your path eventually.

How exciting is that?

Let the excitement of “what can be” propel you.

Take a risk.

Take a step.

Just do it.

If you’re having a hard time moving and taking the first step you know you need to take to get to where you know you want to go, let’s CONNECT on a FREE discovery call to help identify what you need to launch your life and your business in a new and exciting direction.



Yes. Focus on the what you love . . . on the things that interest you the most.

This will help you identify and then pour into your passions.

Start serving others in these areas and feel your energy for what interests you grow.

Become an investigator.

Research what others who have similar interests are doing to create success in their lives . . . and start doing these same things. If it’s bringing THEM success, why can’t it also bring YOU success?

Fact: When you get in motion doing the things that light your fire and then start helping others in these areas, you’ll uncover countless new opportunities. Exciting options will begin to unfold before your very eyes and you’ll discover things about yourself – and others – that you never knew before. You’ll also give back to the world in a dynamic, powerful and meaningful way. The world needs more of YOU in it . . .  so if you’re holding back from being who you were created to be and doing the things you were created to do, you’re taking away from what the world needs, and that doesn’t ultimately serve anyone.

What do you love?

What lights your fire?

What brings a smile to your face and happiness to your heart?


Go do more of that. 🙂

If you’re are stuck on even identifying what you love, what interests you and what your passions are, I have some exciting personalized coaching and mentoring assessments that will help us dig deep and immediately identify these areas so you can get into motion and start doing what matters.

Yes. Stop worrying about getting everything right. And stop worrying about what other people think (who cares what anyone else thinks anyway . . . it’s YOUR life!).

Stop focusing on what you “should” do and begin to shift your attention to what you “want” to do.

No one else on earth was put here to do what YOU were put here to do.

You have an important job and as long as you’re still here, you haven’t completed it yet.

That’s the very nature of how things work; until you’ve completed your mission, you’re going to be challenged to keep growing, keep learning, keep doing, and keep becoming your greatest possibility.

Believe me.

I know this better than anyone.

After all, I’m growing, learning, doing and becoming right alongside you every single day.

Fact: You were created to be exactly who you are – right now . . . with all of your unique talents and skills – and the world needs more of you in it. If you’re holding who you are back because of fear or doubt or uncertainty, you’re doing the world a massive disservice. If you have children, picture their face and think about the incredible human beings they are and all they have to give. You’re no different. You’re also someone’s child, and whether you still believe it or not (we’ll work on that!), there is someone – somewhere – holding on to the belief that YOU have just as much to give. In the craziness and chaos of life, never lose sight of your beautiful inner child.

Write down your developed skills.

Write down your talents.

Reflect on these: Are you using them right now in life and business? If not, why not? And how can you change that pattern of behavior so you can start creating more happiness and success opportunities in your life?

If embracing WHO YOU ARE is a challenge for you, I can help. Of the three items mentioned here, this is – by far – the most important. Why? When you’re not tapped into authenticity, you’re experiencing significant stress, and significant stress will take you out of life faster than anything. But the really great news? We can tackle this issue immediately!

LET’S CONNECT for a FREE DISCOVERY CALL to help you uncover the beauty of who you are . . . for yourself, for your family, for your children, for your community, for your team, for the world.


REMEMBER: You can’t connect the dots until you’re on the other side looking back.

The solution?
