We hesitate to call anything an “epidemic,” but if we were to throw around such labels, then “feeling trapped” might be to our Western world what the Black Plague was to Europe in the Middle Ages {Kristen would like you to know that she had nothing to do with this nerdy analogy. Rachel is a history dork. 🙂 }

Feeling trapped (and its sinister counterparts “stuck,” “frustrated,” “anxious,” and “un-free”) is rampant. That’s why we think this week’s #ClarityGem is so important … it’s all about the unexpected way you can feel un-trapped.

This week, we want you to know:

why the average person feels trapped

Apply it to your own life:

One of the biggest reasons people feel trapped is because they spend a huge chunk of their life worrying, fretting, and otherwise obsessing over what they don’t want to happen. (As in, people are mostly trapped by their thoughts about their reality … not their actual reality.)

They spend so much time doing this that they leave very little time for, you know, actually doing proactive things. They end up severely limiting their own power because only half (if that) of their brain is actually being used for good.

So, what do you think would happen if (even just for one day) you gave 100% of your brainpower to planning for or thinking about what you do want? What might you be able to accomplish if you stopped allowing fear of what you don’t want to keep you trapped?

Tell us how you took action:

Use #ClarityGems on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to share how you’re applying this week’s Gem to your own life, and to see how other people are being inspired.

What #ClarityGems are all about:

Sometimes it’s just better to avoid long blog posts and cut straight to the point!

Think of #ClarityGems as your weekly shake of the good ‘ole Magic 8 Ball … you never know what might bubble up, and how it might be exactly what you need to hear today.

And in addition to a beautiful, inspirational, and shareable image (which is a nice start), we’re giving you some quick thoughts about how to apply it to your life … because inspiration without action is pretty, but kind of anti-climatic.

Tweet it, share it on Instagram, or forward it along to someone who needs to hear it today … and tag us (@ClarityonFire) to let us know how this Gem applies to you!

Much Love,

Kristen + Rachel
