One of the easiest ways to move forward quicker is to understand whether your lack of motion is coming from uncertainty or low energy/motivation? This can help you to develop a guideline or a roadmap to where you really want to go.
If you are uncertain as to which step to take to get to where you want to go, regarding your progress toward a goal, you can first ask yourself what steps you can take today to make some amount of progress. If you can get into a creative and inspired state of mind, answers might come that were untold before. This is the power of feeling truly empowered. When you feel higher emotional/energetic states, you are likely more "tuned in" to your true ability to get where you want to go.
Some ways to promote this state of mind include: Adding tonic herbs to your diet, directing your diet toward vitality (which likely would mean more raw fruits and vegetables, especially blended or juiced), eating superfoods such as raw cacao and goji berries, and doing techniques that uplift you emotionally and energetically such as The Sedona Method or EFT. All of these can be VERY powerful for increasing your ability to feel uplifted and more creative.
Beyond this, another powerful approach is to make an intention and write it down. This intention is one that regards your overall goal. A key is to state it in a way that is inspiring to you in some way. From there, just welcome the possibility of noticing opportunities for you to act in a state of inspiration toward your goal. This is something that author and speaker Joe Vitale promotes. He suggests that by making a clear intention and then being open to opportunities or inspired ideas for you to move forward toward your goal, you can "manifest" your intention. The key, though, that he points out is actually being open to taking inspired action toward your goal, which may or may not be something that requires you to do a lot of actual action. It might just be making a phone call or visiting a website. Making clear intentions, according to him, though, does lead to more inspired ideas for you to act on and often happen syncronistically in a way that doesn't even feel like effort.
The lesson for this would be to be clear about your intention and then be open to new ways for you to innovate.

Often times, just by letting go of resistance toward the goal and other feelings that get in the way as well as increasing your energy and feelings of motivation with tonic herbs and overall diet, the drive to progress toward your goals becomes almost magnetic.
