Everyone gets stuck. We all have blind spots, energy slumps, personal and professional limitations and challenges that often we might not seem to be able to get over. But getting stuck can be especially frustrating when you are a CEO and everyone looks up to you for leadership and guidance.
The desperate effort of its frenzied flying offers no hope for survival. Ironically, the struggle is part of the trap! You see, it is impossible for the fly to succeed in breaking through the glass, no matter how hard it tries.
Nevertheless, the fly is hoping to reach its life goal to get out of the room through raw struggle and determination. In reality, this fly is doomed. It will die right there on the windowsill. Now, little does this fly know that a few meters further away is an open window that le directly to the beautiful outdoors and with only a fraction of the effort the fly can be free from its self-imposed trap. How did that fly get so locked into the idea that breaking through the glass was the only possibility for success?
What logic is there in that fly continuing to attempt the same thing over and over again until finally, exhausted, it falls onto the windowsill and dies? The lesson the fly teaches us is that trying harder is not the solution to achieving more. In fact, more often than not, trying harder is part of the problem. Maybe you are acting like that fly and it is actually time to try an alternative approach. The worst thing you can do when you are stuck, is keep yourself in the office and try and work things out by staring at your computer screen or taking advice from the a leadership team that might have been flying against the same corporate window themselves.
When you are in a situation like that, when you find yourself acting like the fly, detach yourself from the situation. Keep asking yourself that question, keep looking at your situation from different points of view and sooner or later you will be able to see the way out.
Lack of clarity? Maybe it is lack of willingness to leave what is known, your comfort zone. It is the answer to that question that actually determines whether you get unstuck, whether you succeed or fail. So ask yourself: are you really willing to do what it takes to achieve your goals? Are you really willing to find the open door and venture out in the unknown? It means that you will need to accept that you will have to make some sacrifices. They are not willing to do what it takes, not only because this takes additional effort but also because they do not realize that a sacrifice is not about giving up something you like or love.
Making a sacrifice is about letting go of something that you do not need anymore e. So next time you find yourself stuck, think of the fly and ask yourself: What is it that I am not giving up? What is it that I keep on doing that makes me act like the fly against the closed window?
Stop being the fly that hopes to break through the glass by mere effort and determination; getting unstuck and becoming successful requires you to leave your comfort zone and, unlike the fly who died on the windowsill, get to fly out to the beautiful outdoors.
