When you find yourself in a hole..
If you find yourself in a hole, then stop digging
If you find that your way is not working - see it, acknowledge it and STOP doing it!
We are so comfortable in doing things the same way over and over again - just because it is comfortable. Without realising that that very way of doing things keeps us where we are - stuck.
We choose being stuck and feeling comfortable over stepping out of comfort and facing the new and unknown.
