Caught between a rock and a hard place?

Do you feel stuck in a job, relationship or circumstance that you don't like? Does it feel like you have no options or that the choices you have make you feel caught between a rock and a hard place? So how do you get unstuck?

The traditional meaning behind the phrase "caught between a rock and a hard place" refers to a person who is in a tough situation with two options-- neither of which is desirable. But, I think there's a more positive way to look at this phrase. There's an ancient scripture that says, "No temptation (problem) has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God (Source Energy, the Divine) is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation (problem) will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it." 

No matter what circumstances you're facing, there's a solution. It's all about changing your perception of the "problem" (hard place) at hand.

Here's how I want you to look at your difficulty...

Look at your "rock" as being your intention and your "hard place" as your limited beliefs. For example, your intention is your desire to attract more clients. Your hard place is a belief like: you're not good enough to succeed (or no one can afford to pay you).

Now, between your rock and your hard place-- is something called CHOICE. That's right! You have the ability to choose to focus on your intention and remove your attention from perceived obstacles and limiting beliefs. You can commit (once and for all) to getting out of your own way. 

My coach's request to you:
For 24 hours, I want you to deliberately be aware of what you're telling yourself about your ability to succeed in your business. When you catch yourself contemplating something you don't want to experience, I want you to immediately cancel that thought out by saying something like, "Money flows to me frequently and abundantly." or "I am connected to the unlimited Source of abundance."
"Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it, is wise-- like a person who builds a house on solid rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." --Ancient Scripture
