Feeling powerless in a world full of problems

Feeling powerless in a world full of problems

These are crazy times and difficult to emotionally navigate for many.

It can be hard to think of effective ways to “fix” what’s wrong with the world and very easy to believe that things won’t ever change when we can’t.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in how we think about problems in the world – and our inability to do much of anything about them – that we become demoralized and feel powerless as a result.

Understand that as much as you may want to see things change for the better, you are not responsible for initiating changes on a global level.

It’s important to be mindful of the fact that you can only affect things that are within your power to influence or control. And as limited in scope as this may seem, it is enough to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those you connect with.

And it often starts by doing the kinds of things that you respect & admire when others do them and taking action in ways that you can always be proud of no matter how you are feeling.

Challenge what you believe

Challenge what you believe

If you’re not ever willing to challenge what you believe, there’s a good chance that you’re harboring beliefs that no longer serve you. Or at the very least, harboring beliefs that are not a reflection of reality. Especially if you only surround yourself with people who believe the same things you do.

Put power in good things, not bad

Put power in good things, not bad
We often betray ourselves when we give more weight to criticism from people we neither know or respect than we give to practical advice & positive feedback from people we do.

What you choose to dwell on can have a dramatic impact on how you feel. So it makes sense to pay attention to what you pay attention to and give more power to the things that are good for you than you give to those that are not.

Are you here to be human or are you here to be perfect?

Are you here to be human or are you here to be perfect?

Are you here to be human or are you here to be perfect? You can’t have both. The person who never recognizes ways in which they could have done something better isn’t growing. We’re all a work-in-progress. Accept mistakes as learning experiences and push forward.

Building the world where your future self resides

Building the world where your future self resides

Your current lifestyle, routines & habits are building the world where your future self resides.

By failing to be mindful of how your present-day actions affect the world that your future self has to live in, you’re far more likely to end up with a life that you neither wanted or planned for.

Your true potential

Your true potential

Don’t be deceived by a world that often implies that you can only be or do one thing in life.

Your true potential in life may lie in your unique combination of interests that will lead to an uncommon set of skills & knowledge that could ultimately result in you to doing or offering something that the world has never seen before.
