Waiting for change to happen or a better path to pop up is a death sentence. Write that down: waiting is death! You always have 3 options when you're in a situation or on a path that is not what you want:
1️⃣ Change It: If your current path doesn't excite you, do something about it. Appraise the situation and come up with ways you can improve it. Don't look to others to make change, put your own feet on the coals to take control of what you can.
2️⃣ Enjoy It: I often hear people say "I wish I had your job" or "Things will be better when/if I get the job I really want." These are dangerous mindsets to have! This type of thinking will negate your ability to enjoy, appreciate, learn from, and improve your current situation. To get the most out of each step along your journey, you have to be all-in on each step.
3️⃣ Find a New Path: Nobody is holding you hostage. You can always abort mission and start fresh. Use caution here. It's easy to fall into a vicious cycle of starting new things and never putting the work in or giving the time for any of them to come to fruition.
