It is possible to be a slave to ones routine.
This happens when our life takes a pattern that causes us to do the same things over and over again, yet leads to results we only get frustrated about.
When we are in this trap, we usually do not even notice it. If we keep on pursuing the ineffective routine, we end up severely limiting our potential.
Change the routine, change the pattern. Stop doing the things that don’t work and start doing things that will. Make the change.
