Step Out of Your Hamster Wheel

Have you ever considered what it might be like to be a hamster, running around a wheel? Day after day the wheel keeps spinning because you continue to run in a stationary position. Do you feel you are already in a hamster wheel? Each day you wake up and go to work, just to get on the wheel again. Realizing that you lack the passion you once had.

You’ve probably felt mired for a while, you just haven’t known how to get out. By being in a stationary position, you aren’t accomplishing anything useful- hence running in a hamster wheel. In order to get out of the wheel, you must get out of your comfort zone.

Here are four ways you can break out of your “hamster wheel”:

  1. Realize your personality type:By figuring out your personality type you can better understand how you work best and who you mesh well with.
  2. Balance out the main quadrants of your life: Work, family, faith, finances, health, fitness… whatever those quadrants might be, balance them out. By being balanced you will feel more equipped to step off of the hamster wheel and begin doing what feels right for you.
  3. Decide what goals you will set for yourself:Writing your goals down can be a great way to hold yourself accountable to actually see those goals through.
  4. Create a personal strategic plan:To get you on track to reaching your goals and getting out of your hamster wheel, you need a plan that will assist you in getting there.

“When you’re feeling stuck, sometimes it takes another person to help you gain perspective and clarity,” shared Justin Helman, Certified FocalPoint Business Coach. “Providing this perspective and clarity is one way we as FocalPoint businesses coaches can help.”
