Gifted adults ask, “Why am I so stuck?”

As gifted adults, our minds and bodies have been hard-wired to operate at levels unsurpassed by many other people. We know we’ve got the equipment to do the job, so why are we struggling to live the lives we really want?

There are many reasons why we don’t get what we want.

  • We aren’t clear enough about our deepest desires and as such can’t make them happen.
  • We sabotage ourselves every time we start to get close to where we think we want to be.
  • We think ourselves to death and talk ourselves out of taking physical or emotional risks.
  • We just can’t put our fingers on what’s wrong so we don’t know how to fix it.

There may be some underlying factors that we haven’t considered that could be influencing our daily, and even lifetime, success. This video will give you a few things to think about…

    Hello Sonia, 

    I agree with what you wrote. I am currently struggling with items 1 and 2 (in your list). Have you found some clues as to how to proceed to not waste our lives?

    Thank you,
