How To Get Un-stuck & Move Forward


Why Take This Workshop?

• Do you get held back by thoughts like: I might fail, I am an imposter, I am not trained or qualified enough, I don't deserve this success, I am too old or inexperienced etc.?
• Have you ever had a great idea that just never gets executed?
• Would you like to move forward with your business or career but you just stay where you are?
• Do you have trouble choosing between options?
• Do you get blocked by a myriad of tasks that all seem far more important than moving forward with something that might make a huge positive impact in your life?

This 7-step practice is designed to help individuals relinquish what blocks them choosing between important life or business options, to move forward with a new idea or take the next step in executing decisions or major life transitions.

This experiential workshop pulls from the best of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Positive Psychology, Career Management and Leisure Studies as well as extensive practical experience helping clients to get unstuck in career discernment and job search.

Reflection during the day will provide an opportunity for group and professional feedback

Process for the Day

Welcome and Introductions

Get Mindful 
Mindfulness is a process of awareness. It involves paying attention to experience in the moment as opposed to being caught up in thoughts (Harris 2009)
Mindfulness is spending any amount of time focused on one object while you let all of your other thoughts and feelings pass through your mind without attending to them.
With practice, you can experience a whole new world as you focus on the present. It is the platform from which to grow permanently unstuck

Wake -Up Your Inner Observer
Realizing that you have the ability to separate harmful thoughts from what you observe in any situation transforms your perception of events as they unfold in the present.

Separating The Meaning From The Words In Harmful Thoughts
Trying to deny, bury or understand your harmful thoughts is a common strategy that fails but separating thoughts from the meaning that you have attached to them disempowers their hold on you and enable you to get past the blockage

Refreshments and Reflection

Get Clear on your Happiness & Renewal
Science tells that happiness is fleeting when we do not understand it or when you try too hard to grasp it. Getting clear on what makes us truly happy, fulfilled and renewed will inform the strengths and values you choose to act on as you become unstuck.
