Change What You Can, Cope With What You Cannot

This quote is more relevant than ever especially for Americans who are unhappy with Donald Trump officially being sworn in as President today.

I don’t really have an opinion on the whole matter. Why? Because all of the data that is available is from news sources that is really tough to tell their true intentions. Are they being fair in what they are reporting? Are they even accurate or truthful in what they are reporting? With so many people having an agenda, it’s impossible to know what’s right and what’s wrong. All that can be known to be sure is what he does in office and the results of his actions. So many people are speculating and are upset. But all we’re shown or told is whatever the specific news outlet is telling us. And because they have a story to tell, they will only include the information that helps them tell that story.

That being said, I think people should more on what they can control. For example:

  • How they treat their body
  • How they treat others
  • What they do for work
  • What they do for hobbies
  • What they read, watch or listen to
  • Where they go
  • What they wear

Aside from that, an individual doesn’t have the power to influence any decisions that are made in the White House or really on any level of government. Unless that individual is in government or is going to create a movement. Which isn’t 99.9% of individuals. I know one of those people who is the 0.1%. His name is Gian-Carlo Carra. I’ve seen first hand what it takes and have been a part of his mission for seven years. There’s a reason why more people aren’t like him. It takes a certain skillset, a thick skin, an absolute devotion to the cause, a lot of patience and a lot of faith.

So if you are complaining on Facebook or Twitter and what is happening in the USA is in any way impacting the quality of your life, I challenge you to take a look at your abilities, your goals and your efforts. Do you have the ability to change something? If not, stop complaining, stop letting what’s happening negatively impact your life and instead focus on the things that can make your life better.

All the effort you’re spending on being upset, being negative and trying to figure out everything that’s going on, you could spend being a more engaged, more positive, know what is anabolism and be a more healthy individual which will ultimately make your country better. One thing I know for sure – what you’re doing right now isn’t making your country any better.
