How to Overcome Hopelessness and Achieve Great things with your Life

Use it

Life is about conveying what you are feeling through the actions you impart on the instrument you possess, whether that is through the use of your voice, your writing or your actions

They are great because they capture a moment that we have all felt and portray it in a way we can relate to.

Hopelessness is often the self-edification that leads to great discovery or advancement

Feelings of hopelessness are perfectly natural

By identifying the reason for your hopelessness, whether it is the lack of a product or ability to do something, you are able to being working towards providing a solution to a problem. The value can be derived from the fulfilment gained from overcoming the feeling you are currently experiencing or from sharing it with other people.

That offers you two distinctly antagonistic options

One of action and the other of inaction

The first challenge then is simple: Do something

Doing something is the paradigm shift in thinking required to enable progress

Ironically the destruction of procrastination as an option takes time

Taking those first steps, breaking away from the burden of modern distraction, are what is required to begin the journey.

It’s about being passionate and persevering

You have to keep on keeping on and never give up

It is so easy to stand still and embrace the paralysis that comes from not knowing what to do or where to go

They won’t

Those feeling shackle you and prey on your helplessness sending you into a spiralling perpetual despair which is cyclical and never ending.

That is why people struggle

They believe you are either creating or you are waiting to create

We are all equally creative if we allow ourselves to be

Our potential is unlimited and can only be constrained by a lack of imagination

The difference between good and great is much closer than we think

You need to afford yourself the opportunity of greatness by doing, keep doing and never stopping

You might create something awful but it’s something that can be iteratively developed.

If you learn the lessons of your failing each cumulative change will lead to something better and eventually something profound

If you relentlessly pursue progress you’ll never stand still or have time to be assaulted by hopelessness

Create, reflect, develop and improve and you’ll be well on your way to greatness

Or stand Still and Perish
