No One is Coming to Save You

It’s easy to blame the government, your employer, or someone other than yourself for your problems. But no one will come to save you.

You’ll have to lift yourself out of your circumstances. It won't be easy. But if you want to change your life, you really don’t have a choice.

You'll never find it. There’s power in just starting

You don’t have to make a big deal out of starting a new project, just do it.

One of the most difficult yet useful skills is the ability to balance your aspirations with reality. A pessimist and an idealist both miss the point.

The point is to have optimism about your future but look at the state of society, your environment, and your circumstances without rose-colored glasses.

Realizing the world will constantly test you removes the element of surprise. When you find yourself in a bad spot, it feels doubly worse because you didn’t see it coming.

When life tests you, you get the chance to prove you’re resilient. One of the deepest levels of satisfaction comes from knowing how strong you are.

Deep down we know we're responsible for our situations, but accepting that it's hard.  Because it means we’re the ones that have to change and take responsibility.

Denial feels bad, but it hurts a little less than accepting the truth of your role in your own life.

Things will never be the way they "should" be. A perfect world doesn’t exist. 

Instead of talking about what you should do and the way the world should be, you’re better off doing. Doers make change happen for themselves and for others.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

How they keep their commitments

We actually make a lot of commitments in daily life like:

  • “I’ll let you know about the meeting by Friday.”
  • “I’ll be there in 5 minutes.”
  • “I’ll call you at 6 pm.”

If you notice a pattern where someone fails to follow through with any of their commitments—or regularly changes them—it can reveal someone who isn't reliable, doesn't hold themselves accountable for the things they say, or doesn’t value you all that much.

Failing to ask for clarification

Not asking for clarification because of fear of looking incompetent in front of authority.

FIX: If you don't understand what success looks like, ask for clarification, specifics or examples. If you ask well-informed questions, you'll look a whole lot smarter than if you execute incorrectly.
