How To Get Off The Hamster Wheel

Everyone has expectations for their life. Whether it is to create a successful wealth filled life or just to make it to the next day, whatever it is; it is the expectation that you have for your life. Throughout life, we come across many opportunities and many disappointments. The thing is that life continues despite whether we are ready for it or not. It doesn’t stop, slow down, or get easier just because we are having a bad day.


Life can be so stressful to the point where you feel like you’ve failed, or your life will never meet your expectations, or even that you may fall into deep regret because of the choices that you have made in your life. Life can really just make you feel like your going, going, and going and not really going anywhere. Sound familiar? A hamster wheel is no fun and it is time for YOU to get off and actually be making advances towards the life you want to live.


Here are some helpful tips to get you off the hamster wheel and on a road that can lead you towards your expectations.

  1. Make the time you need to think about what YOU really want out of life.
  2. Step out of your comfort zone.
  3. Create BOLD goals.
  4. Create a plan.
  5. Make and execute milestones that will lead up to each and every goal you have.
  6. Get an accountability partner.
  7. Believe that you can and will achieve your goals.
  8. NO MORE EXC– — USES!!!!!!!

Don’t live life unconsciously. Make sure that you choose to have a conscious existence so that you can see the results in your life that you want to see and live the life that you want to live.

  1. Good reminders to keep us on track Denise!

    I find that one of the most commonly missing practices also is self-celebration. We all thrive on validation and it can make all the difference between feeling you’re on a hamster wheel or that you’re doing what you’re doing because you have a goal you value in mind.

      Throughout my journey, I have learned that self celebration is vital. Sometimes our huge victories are few and far in-between and it is easy to loose focus, momentum, and confidence. If we learn how to celebrate the small accomplishments and victories, then we can truly see that small progress is still progress and our larger triumphs are on the way.
