“Wherever you go, there you are.”
It’s an obvious statement.
Not to get too philosophical here, but do you like your situation today?
If not, it probably a time to take account of your environment as well as your mindset to determine what must change.
You may be in a bad environment. The people you hang with, the relationships that occupy your time may not be best for you. What can you do to improve your environment? It can be as simple as changing your geography. You won’t be impacted by an environment you leave.
You may need better habits. Which of your habits weigh you down? What habits could you target that would be better for you?
Your mindset could be off. What consumes your thinking? Are the thoughts negative? Filled with resentment? Cause frustration?
Forgiveness. Acceptance. Listening for a different angle all help to reset a mindset.
Just remember, there’s a central character to your personal story. That would be you.
