If you’re at a point in your life where you feel stuck, unfulfilled or unmotivated –
I got a cool trick that will help you to quiet your mind, find clarity, and to figure out how to move forward from the point you’re currently in.
That moment when you’re stuck and your motivation goes to sh*t
I was sitting at my table, trying to make something – anything – happen.
For the past several months I was feeling kinda stuck, uninspired and unmotivated.
I had such big dreams. Sure.
But I felt like I was spinning in circles, unable to think clearly or to move forward.
I felt lost. Hopeless. Unmotivated. And frustrated as hell.
Ugh, don’t you just hate it when that happens…?
You know what I’m talking about:
Suddenly – Every exciting plan you’ve had for your life…
every brilliant idea you’ve had for your business…
(stuff that got you to bounce of the walls just a few weeks ago) –
They all seemed boring. Grey. Completely un-exciting.
Did that ever happen to you?
I bet it has.
Why is that happening? Why am I feeling stuck?
One of the main reasons you get stuck in your life is usually because there are just too many things that are preventing you from thinking clearly.
These are usually things you have to do/handle/deal with/consider, and that keep looping endlessly in your mind, providing zero value except wasting your valuable brain power.
These things can be anything, from:
- Tasks you haven’t got to or haven’t completed yet
- Unpleasant situations you’ve had with other people and that keep re-playing in your mind over and over again like an endless loop of a really bad movie
- Worries or concerns you have about your future. Your relationships. Your job or business.
- Goals and dreams you have and that you haven’t started persuasion yet
You know. Stuff.
The problem is…
Those annoying little open loops are constantly there –
Occupying and clogging your mind, and basically preventing new, fresh ideas from coming through.
So how do I deal with this and clear my brain so I can move forward?
To handle this situation I’m about to teach you a cool little trick that will help you to “take your mental trash out”.
It’s a useful and liberating little morning exercise that you can do anytime, and anywhere…
(though it works best when you plug it into your official daily morning routine).
..and that will allow you to clear your mind, find some much needed clarity, and to make sense of everything you need to do.
Oh, and the best part..? It’s free, and will only take a few minutes of your day.
Ready to see how it works?
Let’s do this:

Meet your new BFF:
The “Morning Pages” Morning Ritual
I originally read about the morning pages exercise in a book called “The artist Way” by Julia Cameron.
It’s a brilliant book that was originally meant to help “creative people” to get creatively unstuck…
…but I found that it’s perfect for helping me to find clarity and to make sense of everything that’s going on in my life.
It basically helps to clear my mind of anything that doesn’t serve me, so I can finally see things clearly and focus on what matters.
When I’m being consistent with this exercise, doing it every single morning without skipping any days – My mind feels incredibly clear, productive and super creative.
I get fresh, new ideas all the time, and it’s really easy for me to focus and get my “tasks” done quickly and efficiently.
What a change from those times when it took me forever to write a single blog post, or to complete a project.
This little trick has completely changed my life, and once you’ll learn how to use it.. it will do the same for you.
OK, so what are “Morning Pages”, exactly?
‘Morning Pages’ are a basically a simple journaling exercise.
Here’s how it works:
Every morning, right after you wake up,
you grab your tea or your water,
take out your journal,
and basically just start spitting out all those loud, noisy thoughts that take out space in your brain and won’t allow you to think straight.
You write non-stop for 3 whole pages – without judging, without analyzing, without even thinking – and then you’re done.
After a few days or a week of this, ou’ll start noticing that your mental fog starts to clear up, that you can think better, focus better, and that fresh and exciting new ideas start popping into your head.
Any tips on how to make it work better for me?
Yes. In order for your morning pages to do their magic you have to obey 3 simple rules:
Write your morning pages close as possible to the time when you wake up.
The idea here is to clear anything that’s been piling up in your brain through the night, so you can start your day out fresh, with the maximum amount of focus and clarity.
As you write… DO NOT stop to think about what you’re writing.
No grammar fixing, no analysing, no judging!
Remember that no one needs to see this.
Heck – you don’t even need to look at it after you wrote it!
So relax and let everything that’s been clogging out your mind out.
PSSSTT: And if you have no idea what to write about – i’ll give you some at the end of this video.
Don’t mess with the length.
Write exactly 3 mid-sized pages, or 2 big pages.
And in those days where you feel like you ain’t got nothing…?
In those days write 3 pages as well.
(What..? I got one more!)
Make sure to give this thing ago for at least 30 days before you say it’s not for you.
Cuz i gotta tell ya – I was never a journal kinda girl, but this thing… it’s magic.
What do I write about? What if I got nothing?
Basically the idea is to write whatever the heck comes to your mind,
This way you’ll be able to work through the stuff that keeps bothering you,
And to get exciting ideas out of your brain and into a physical form,
Where you can really look at them.
But – to make it easier for you to get started –
I’ve created a printable with a few morning pages prompts (topic ideas).
Print it out, stick it into your journal as a bookmark
and use it in those days when you feel “hey – I got nothing”.
That’s what I got for you today.
Next – Make sure you download your journalist-prompts bookmark, so you won’t get stuck in the exercise that’s meant to get you unstuck 😉
