If you can't change your situation

Then change your perspective.


Wouldn't it be great if every time we were unhappy about a situation we could just walk away from it?


Unfortunately, that's just not how life works. There are times when you are unable to move from where you are, no matter how much you want to.


Maybe you are stuck in a job that you hate, or maybe you had a dream that you can't afford to pursue at the moment, or maybe you wanted to move to another location but are unable to do so because of the commitments you have at home.


You can spend every waking moment resentful and bitter - angry at the world for putting you in that place - or you can decide to accept that you are in that place for a reason and embrace the learnings that come with it.

Life has taught me that when you feel stuck, you need to work on a two-part strategy:


  1. Your long-term "life-change" strategy- the steps you need to take to change the situation you are unhappy about. Can you sign-up for a course, upskill, save money or make additional income?


2. Your immediate "acceptance strategy"- stop fighting your current situation, and instead, change your perspective on it. View it as a time to build character, and to learn valuable lessons.


We cannot control the universe, or our futures, but what we can control is the way we respond to life. You never know- after all, the difficult times you are passing through now might be the reason why your whole life turns around, and you finally achieve all you dreamt of.


Until then, hang in there, and you will be grateful for the lessons you gained along the way!
