In a similar sentiment, Einstein famously proclaimed "“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
If we want something different in our lives, the first thing we must do is recognize that we can't keep doing the same thing in the same way.
The next is to get really clear on what it is we do (or don't) want. Personally, I often find it easier to start with what I don't want to get to what I do. But many of us who have been trained in some way with the Law of Attraction have been taught to believe that focusing on what we don't want will then lead to attracting more of the 'bad' stuff instead of attracting what we do want into our lives.
While there may be some truth to this, I believe it all comes down to intention and belief.
If you spend our time focusing only on what we don't want, then yes, you likely will attract more of what you dislike into your life.
If, on the other hand, you make it clear - to yourself and the Universe, higher power or whomever you tend to speak to, if anyone, in a spiritual sense - that in order to get to what you want you must first work through what you don't want, and that you only intend to manifest the end result (what you want), then you'll be just fine.
Believing this is another important factor though, so if you're not there belief-wise and remain fearful that you're somehow at risk, then, as I always recommend, do what feels best for you.
Question: What existing reality do you want to make obsolete in your life, and what kind of new model will you dare to create to replace it?
Although it might sound easy, once becoming aware of what you do and don't want is only the beginning. There's a lot more underneath the surface that also must evolve if you want a change to stick.
A great way to learn what those things are and how to apply them to your life is Magical Mind - a 4-week online program currently in the works. Or if you'd rather go with 1:1 guidance, give Detanglement Coaching a try.
Change is always easier with support, so if you've got a change in the works but aren't ready to commit to a program or coaching, please find people who can support you in a positive and uplifting way, to help make your transition a smooth and positive one!
