Now, I’m not suggesting that you go cold turkey like that unless you have a lot of personal strength and courage, and the willingness to dynamically change that area of your life. Sometimes making a bold move like that will be what’s required. Many times making a small change in the direction of doing something different will create enough of a change to give you a different perspective and get you out of the rabbit hole.
Now here’s the cool part: when you ask a question, you open doors of possibility that didn’t appear to be there before. It’s like staring at a wall, and all of a sudden a door appears when you ask the question. When you ask, “What it’s going to take to change this area?” you put your attention in that direction, and the world around you mobilizes to give you an awareness of exactly that. So, for example, let’s say you feel like you never have any time or space to yourself. Your batteries are getting run down and you don’t know what to do about it.
If this sounds like you, one of the things that may come up when you ask that question is: “spend some time alone nurturing you.”

That’s the way your mind works. It is always giving you the reasons why you can’t, not the way in which you can. So when you ask the question about what you can do different, give your mind a break. Let it know: “I’ve got this. Go take a break.” And let your childlike sense of wonder and possibility run the show for a few minutes.
