It can drive people to commit crimes, do great things, give up hope, or take a risk to change their life. Desperation is perhaps one of the most powerful human emotions and if given the chance it can easily overwhelm a person. The difference between letting desperation rule you or push you to improve the situation is entirely up to you. Many a man and woman have committed crimes out of desperation to try and make their lives better. Just as many have given up hope because they cannot ‘make it work’ no matter how hard they try. Then there are the lucky ones who were able to push forward to do great things or who took a risk to change their life.
They are the ones who refused to stay down and instead turned that desperation into motivation to feed their families, to stop living paycheck to paycheck, and to change their lives. That motivation has led many people to change job fields, go back to college, or start their own business. Some of them were raised with that motivation, others were tired of being beat down, and others yet saw that twinkle of hope. Everyone is capable of overcoming desperation by remembering what they are fighting for and doing everything possible to make it happen. But perhaps two of the biggest helping factors when trying to make the most out of the newly found motivation are research and patience. To learn what works, what doesn’t, and take what time you have to find out how to implement them as effectively as possible.
