Stuck: settling for short term gains over long term pay off. What does that mean? When we are the victim in a situation we receive immediate relief in the form of sympathy which can feel good but is only temporary solution to a much bigger challenge. Sort of like putting a band aid on a broken arm.
So how do we get unstuck? Instead of settling for the immediate relief we have to step back and look at the larger picture. What outcome am I trying to create? What do I have control over? What do I not have control over? How can I utilize my skills and assets to achieve the desired outcome? With each challenge we face we have the opportunity to try something new.
