Here is what to do when you've "tried it all."
Almost all of my clients (and I) are high-achievers. And I find it so funny that because since we are high-achievers, we are also extreme researchers. A lot of us are analysts at heart.
When we set our minds to something we really dive in and research all the things.
When we're talking through a problem, we say, “I've read all the things. I know what I need to do.”
But sometimes (or often) it doesn’t work as we expect and we get stuck. It’s very frustrating because we’ve already done all of the analysis and planning and so we don’t know where to turn.
You've already tried everything, right?
When this happens we need to take a step back and get to the root of the goal/program. If it's not working, what else can you try?
The main problem is that we can get so stuck in research mode, what other people are doing, and we think it should work for us too. We need to remember it is not a one-size-fits-all approach, especially when it comes to habits and routines. Everyone's life is different. Everyone's focus is different. Test it out, keep trying, and keep going!
