Signs That You Need a New Strategy to Advance in Your Life

Feeling stuck in your daily life?

You may need a new strategy so you can advance into your life purpose!

Here are a few signs that you need a new game-plan so you can keep moving forward:

#1 You’re bored with your life.

You may feel like everything is same-old-same-old, like you’re just going through the motions of your day.  

Boredom is simply a sign that you can change—and that you want to change. You don’t usually need a major realignment, but just a few small adjustments to get on track to a better future and a more fulfilling life.

Ask yourself: What is causing my feelings of boredom?

Boredom is usually the result of the lack of focus or challenge. Do something to break out of your normal routine. Find a new hobby, start a new venture, try a new restaurant, travel somewhere new or call a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. 

Sometimes your breakthrough is tied up in your willingness to try new things!

#2 You keep repeating the same cycles over and over.

Does this sound familiar?

Every time it looks like you are moving forward a little in life, something happens to set you back again. Or you feel like you continuously trip up because of the same negative cycles or patterns of behavior. 

It Might Be a SPIN Cycle

I have identified a SPIN Cycle that people get into. SPIN is an acronym for: 

  • Stuck in the past
  • Procrastinating 
  • Internal negative thinking 
  • No clear vision

Ask yourself: What is the root of this negative SPIN cycle? Then counter this negative idea with truth.

Are you stuck in the past? Here’s the truth: The past is over, and today you can do something that moves you closer towards your goal. 

Are you procrastinating? Check out this blog to find out common reasons we procrastinate and how to overcome procrastination

Are you thinking negative thoughts? Declare Bible verses like this one over yourself:

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV

The more you declare strategic Bible verses over your life, the closer you get to transformed thinking!

Are you lacking a clear vision? Listen to this podcast about how you can run with the vision God has for you. 

Like anything, we simply need to develop some new healthy habits. Habits only take a short time to establish when we become intentional and consistent. The good news is that there are a lot of free or low-cost resources out there—like the ones I just shared with you!

#3 You feel in your heart that something needs to change.

Many of us feel powerless to change. But in reality, God has given you everything you need. 

As you make a decision to do something, you will soon feel better, more peaceful and have a positive outlook about your future. Taking one small step after another will bring breakthrough over time.


Get ready to start advancing in your daily life!

    I can relate to Brian. My past is behind me but no vision as all previously lost and I am worn out. I need new exciting challenging opportunities to thrive with financial resources and housing of my own resources … not barely survive! I appreciate your prayers and wisdom of sharing ways to breakthrough. I am ready for a BIG change to push me into my destiny!

    God bless,

    Definitely in need of career change and financial breakthrough. Been praying and looking but nothing seems to work. Doors of Opportunity seem to not be opening right now. I need a financial miracle that will bless and take away from me. A career change into what God has called me into this Season immediately in Jesus Name Amen.
