That helpless sinking feeling

One of the worst feelings in the world is not feeling in control. Feeling out of control of a situation is terrifying. Thinking that life is just happening around you, and your actions don’t matter. The feeling like you can’t do anything to make change is sinking. I can assume that everybody has felt this way at some time in your life, I can assume that we have all struggled with this feeling.


Well what is there to do? What can be done. I think you already know what I’m going to say, Just Work. That was predictable, but that’s all I have to say. Be the change you want to see, don’t just imagine change. If you want something, take it. Nothing will ever be given to you. If you don’t know how to take it, work hard and learn how to take it.


Simply if you want something and you don’t know what to do to get your goal. Break it down into the simplest terms. Let’s say your goal is, to get a job. It’s obvious that you should apply for the job and go get the job. Obvious that that is what you have to do. But don’t just walk into the building demanding a job. Do the work, necessary to get the job. Do your research, learn everything you can and will need to know about the job you want, and learn everything about the company that you will be working for. Doing the work also involves being presentable and attentive. Represent an employee that should get the job, not just one that can do the job.


Okay let’s say it’s not a job, your goal can be anything. Break it down into its simplest terms. What is the goal? What do I need to do to get to the goal? If the goal is to win the world cup, you need to start with practicing soccer every day and getting better at soccer. Don’t just think that you can jump right into tackling the goal, take the required baby steps first.


If you don’t like that you’re not making an impact, if you don’t like that you don’t have the effect on your life. Change your life. Work to make change. It won’t come right away, it may never come, but if you keep trying and keep working, something will stick. If you don’t like someone or something for the way that it is, try. Try and change it, try and make it different
