“Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.” ~Arthur Christopher Benson

You take yourself with you wherever you go, so running off to a new place is no way to escape. You’ll just end up replicating the same patterns that got you where you are in the first place. But if you work on changing habits that don’t serve you, and replacing them with ones that do you’ll notice that you no longer feel like you have to escape from the situation, and can feel more comfortable in your surroundings. You can still use a change of scenery to help uproot you from your rut and make lasting changes.

“The harder I work, the luckier I get.” ~Gary Player

work hard dream big

It’s easy to equate success with luck, but that is often not the case, and those that are seemingly lucky have put in the hard work to get that way. Luck has been described as the moment when preparation meets opportunity, so you have to put in the work to get prepared for the time when opportunity comes knocking. You may have opportunities presented to you but you are not prepared to capitalise on them, and therefore cannot take advantage of that lucky moment. Put in the work and the opportunities will come and you’ll be ready for them.

“The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work.” ~Richard Bach

Work can be miserable and tedious, or it can be a task you look forward to accomplishing each day. The choice is yours, and if you want to shift your thinking on it, try to develop a strong desire to get it done. This will make it seem more like a game than work, and will give you a strong sense of accomplishment when the day’s tasks are complete. You may even feel like you didn’t really do any work, because you really wanted to get it done. Trudging along doing work that you don’t particularly like can be stifling, so work on wanting to get it done.
