When we find ourselves stuck in a rut or not moving forward or in a slump, we must be counter-intuitive. The natural inclination for most people when they struggle to find growth or success is to work harder. We feel that we need to do more to figure out why we are not improving or why we may indeed be going backwards. However, the solution to any slump or being in a rut is to focus less on ourselves and more on others. More is not always the answer. Different may be the better choice. When we direct our attention to others and when we have a goal of making others better, we take our attention and focus off of ourselves, and we allow natural growth to ultimately occur. Our rut or slump is often a by-product of too much focus on ourselves and not enough investment in others around us. Make a choice right now to make someone in your life better today and the result will be that you will be become better too.
