When times feel as though they are tough and the future seems bleak, we sometimes need some motivation to help us to keep focused. In this post, we share an amazing motivational video called Quiet Desperation. It is not necessarily desperation we are seeking but focus and direction. We know we have dreams and goals and our time feels the most difficult, this is the time to stand up. Pursue your dream.

When The Future Seems Bleak Watch This

One thing that can cause depression is fear of the future never getting better, you can’t see the future being brighter than it is today.

The truth is the only person that can make your future better than what you are currently living today is the person reading this text right now! You better believe it, it is down to YOU!

Things Can Change If YOU Allow It

You can change your life and you can make things better, I admit, things outside of your control can make things that little bit harder and more painful.

For me, the founder of Seek A Therapy, it was the recession of 2008. A lack of opportunity in my hometown, even after gaining a great education in architecture and teaching. Being in a relationship that was very pressured and highly dependent on me. These things led to a feeling of despondency.

After struggling for years during my education, feeling worse and worse as the years passed I felt trapped. Trapped in my situation, I decided enough was enough. Finally, taking the step of moving away from my home and my family. A very hard and difficult thing to do, but ultimately, put me in a better situation and also still managed to see my family on regular occasions.

I changed my situation and YOU can too. Now is the time for you to ask yourself, what do I want to change about my life? How do I go about doing that? Do I need to learn something new? Do I need to gain new skills? There are lots of online courses and websites. We recommend checking out websites like udemy and the centre of excellence to help you in the pursuit of your dreams.

If The Future Seems Bleak To You Ask Yourself, What Is It You Love Doing?

When the future seems bleak, learn to be optimistic and follow your goals. A picture of a sunrise over a city.

Do it!

Dream it, eat it, sleep it, breathe it. If you do something you love doing a job stops becoming a job and instead becomes a hobby and a hobby you get paid for. When you come home you can learn more about it, improve upon it, you will feel more fulfilled.
