Matthew Stafford was a loser. 🏈 😔
Well, statistically, as quarterback for the Detroit Lions, his record was just 74-90-1 in 12 seasons.
But before the 2021-2022 season, he was traded to the LA Rams. 🐏
The change of scenery reinvigorated Stafford.
He led the Rams to a 1st place finish in the regular season. 🏅
In the playoffs, Stafford and the Rams beat the Cardinals, Bucs, and 49ers.
That got them to Super Bowl LVI. 🏈
There, with under 2 minutes left, Stafford threw the gaming-winning touchdown.
Stafford was now a champion! 🏆
But why now?
We often view ourselves as physically separate from our surrounding environment.
But our environment plays a much more significant role on us than most recognize. 🪞
Chameleons change their colors to adapt to their environment. 🦎
We change too.
But our adaptations aren’t as noticeable as a chameleon’s color.
Are you ever stressed, in a rut, or feeling uninspired? 😟
A change of environment may help.
Break the routine.
Get into nature. 🌳
Go for a walk.
Work in a new room or space.
Book a vacation. ✈️
Even these tiny novel experiences can make a difference.
Stafford turned things around. 💪
You can too.
Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery. 🆕
