Every one of us wants to be happy.

And, each one of us has different ideas about what we need in order to be happy.

But we all get the same feelings and thoughts when we are not happy.  When we are not happy, we tend to feel scared.  When we are not happy, we worry about what is going to happen next in our lives.  When we are not happy, we over-analyze every situation and try to manipulate it to get what we want  — which all requires significantly more time and energy than we can muster up.

Sometimes no matter how much thought and dedication you have made toward getting what you want to become happy, you don’t get what you want and you become frustrated.

That’s when we have to ask ourselves a really important question: what do I do when things are not working out as I want – do I keep trying — or do I give up on my dreams? The answer is not always obvious.

But knowing what to do when you are stuck in a rut is the only way out.

If you’ve ever overwhelmed with worry about what your next step should be, this episode is for you.

In this episode, you’ll get three must-ask and must-answer questions to help you decide what to do when you are stuck in a rut.

When it comes to your happiness — have you ever been frustrated when things have not worked out the way that you wanted?   Were you able to be happy?  What did you do to achieve happiness?
