How To Get Out of a Slump

Stop feeling sorry for yourself.  Self loathing accomplishes nothing, and will only prolong your slump.

Accept responsibility.   Recognize that you’re the one that dug yourself into a hole and you’re going to have to be the one to dig yourself out.

Realign your priorities.   Often when I feel like life’s getting away from me it’s because I’m spending my time on things that aren’t important to me.  I’ve found that spending some time thinking about my goals always seems to provide me with clarity on changes I need to make.

Take action.    If nothing moves, nothing changes.  If you’re feeling down it’s because your actions aren’t in congruence with your highest vision of yourself.  You’re not doing the things that your ideal self would do. Planning’s great, but without action nothing changes.

Identify and eliminate triggers.   Recognize what got you into a slump in the first place and aim to remove it from your life, or at least minimize its impact.  If you skip this step, you’ll quickly find yourself back at square one.
