Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
Best motivational video ever by Steve Harvey. Please watch till the end.
This statement could be rightly understood in a situation like a pandemic where not a state or country but the whole universe got affected severely and realize the importance of many aspects of life. In this situation where everyone got stuck on the premises, they consequently realize the importance of this statement where many people utilize this time as well and make it productive. This is true that despite demanding what you can’t have, do what you can, with what you have, where you are(quotes by theodore roosevelt).
Life is unpredictable and you can’t decide what would happen to the next moment so instead of planning for years, start living the present fully and leave the rest. Rather than formulating strategies for the future, you should make your present worthy by the resources you have with itself. Everyone had planned before this pandemic situation to do in 2020 but what happened? Everything changes in a month and all of us are restricted at the places where we are, so despite focussing on the future and to make contingent plans, everyone should do what you can, with what you have, where you are. The statement simply means that don’t restrict yourself from doing something productive due to a certain situation and start utilizing the resources that you have in your hands.
Many people in this pandemic use their time by doing productive at the places where they are such as some of you spend precious time with their loved ones, some of your turns to be fit or some of you develop different skills in yourself. However, if you wish to grow and rise and shine then you need to stop making excuses and start working with what you can, with what you have, where you are.
It is very easy to blame the situation and easily take off your hands but before making excuses, think once that does such excuses take you to the place where you wish to? And one thing is for sure that such excuses will only make you feel regret in your life and ameliorate your identity. Therefore, what is important in life is survival of the fittest and to survive healthily and properly, you need to work on with the prevailing situation and make every second of your life worthy enough so that in the future when you look back, you could be satisfied with your decisions.
Moreover, life becomes interesting if you start living it with prosperity and find solutions in every tough situation you faced. Notwithstanding this pandemic situation, you could use this time in an optimum manner and don’t see any situation as a way to lose your destiny, despite taking it as a challenge to clear it successfully.
