Find a way or make a way

Even smart, highly talented people struggle when faced with challenges and setbacks. Instead of exercising their agency in those crucial moments and believing in their own power to influence the outcomes they desire, they let their decisions be governed by things outside their control (other people's behavior, conditions, circumstances, and environment).

The attitude to abdicate responsibility and place blame on others creates a toxic spiral of negativity which ultimately leads to avoidance and inaction.

The key to get over your own self-imposed limitations and find a way to what you want requires practicing the attitudes and behaviors of a highly proactive person. It requires cultivating high agency.
