3 Things To Do If There Is No Progress In Your Life

Have you ever noticed the ripple expansion across water when you drop an object into it?

This phenomenon can teach you a great lesson, if you feel that there is no progress in your personal and professional life.

The lesson simply is: the best way to conquer stagnation is to disturb it.

Any tiny action you take will lead to incremental outward changes.

I always advise my life purpose coaching clients that once they find their passion and purpose in life, they should act fast by taking the easiest smallest action possible in the direction of their purpose.

This small action will generate new possibilities and cause a ripple effect that will change the ground and build your momentum.

So, here’re three things you can do now to initiate a ripple effect in your life:

1. Read a new book

Acquiring new information in general broadens your perspective and creates new choices for you. You can stumble upon one idea in a book that gives you an AHA moment, and hence lead to a transformational experience.

2. Connect with new people

Networking is your greatest asset in your passionate living journey. Every new person you know can be pivotal to your success. A new connection can either introduce you to a new idea or to another person that can help you get what you want easier and faster.

3. Travel

Travelling to your favorite or new destinations can help you calm your mind and think clearly about how to move to the next level in your life. The busyness of life can drift you away and gives you no chance to think about what really matters to you. When you take a break and reconsider your choices and possibilities, you will definitely find new ways to accelerate your progress and conquer stagnation.

What else can you do to affect your stagnant situation with a ripple effect?
