When Your Best Is not Enough

When Your Best Is not Enough

How many times have you planned for everything, done your homework, did your best then got surprised by some unexpected event that blew your plans away?

How many times have you found yourself facing a problem that doesn’t seem to have any possible solution?

I bet we have all faced such situations at some time in our lives. We've probably all experienced the feeling that a problem is bigger than our problem-solving skills. Before I tell you how to deal with such situations you should first know how vulnerable we are.

How Vulnerable We Are

  • Tom is an athletic guy; he always felt proud of his well built body and his fitness level. However, one day while he was running, he sprained his ankle and had to put his leg in cast for an entire month!! Few seconds ago he was feeling proud and smiling as if nothing in the world could bother him; now he is totally helpless, lying injured on the ground and waiting for someone to help him.
  • Bill is a clever and a very intelligent student. He studies everyday and always gets high grades. During his final exam he suddenly got a strong stomach ache that prevented him from writing anything in the exam paper. Later he discovered that this ache was caused by some food that he ate yesterday. How could he possibility have expected this? It's something that is completely beyond his power
  • Jack is an experienced investor and has made lots of money by carefully and intelligently investing in the stock market. He used to proudly speak about his achievements and his financial success. Jack did his homework, researched stocks before buying any and left nothing to coincidence. One morning he woke up to on some frightening news: his country was involved in a war with a neighboring country and the market plunged 50% in a few hours. Jack lost half of his money in that crash and even though he might eventually recover his money through further patience and dedicated effort still he was very vulnerable to an expected life event

What You Can Get Out of these Stories?

No matter how much power you have, how intelligent you are or how solid your personality is there will still be things that will remain out of your control. Even if you were the most well prepared person in the world there will still be some kind of an external event that can shake your confidence to the core and makes you discover that you are vulnerable.

The problems that we can't solve, the worries that we can't get rid of and the unpleasant and unexpected events; all of these things remind us of one thing: that we are vulnerable and that we will remain so no matter how much power we collect.

The Missing Element

From a personal development perspective, you can learn to be solid, to control your stress or to manage a crisis, but there will still always be something that remains out of your control.

That’s why you need a higher power that you can depend on when all of your powers fail to help you. You need to believe in God; this is the only way you can fill the gap that results from your vulnerability.

If you use your powers to deal with all the problems that you can't solve and asked God for help when you face problems that you can't solve then you have created an unbeatable model for solving problems and for achieving whatever you want.

All the skills that you have, all the power that you possess, all the knowledge that you have collected and all the resources that you can summon can be useless at some point in your life. That’s why a higher power is the only thing that can get you out of it. The Power of God.

How Can People Who Don’t Believe in God Succeed?

There are people who don’t believe in God and although they can succeed in many aspects of their lives, you only need to know them more and you will discover the amount of anxiety, worrying and stress that they are subjected to.

After all, not believing in God makes you feel that you are not backed up and so if you faced a very big problem you may get depressed, or even think of suicide.

Should I Believe in God Just Because I Need To?

I'm sure that while reading this article something like this came to your mind “So should I just believe in god because I need to believe in a higher power?”

I am totally against this. you shouldn’t believe in God just because you need to believe in a higher power. If you searched really well without having any prejudices or predefined beliefs you will definitely end up finding God.

In my book "I Saw God" i said that it's wrong to believe in God's existence in case you can't prove it. Faith without proof is blind faith, if you want to have a solid belief in God that can't be shaken then you should prove his existence first, fortunately science can help you do this.

Whether you started by looking into science, nature, logic or philosophy, you will end up finding Him. Don't allow yourself to stay vulnerable; fill the gap!

The book "I Saw God" was released by 2knowmyself, The book provides scientific evidence that prove the existence of god, with levels of probabilities that are not subject to debate or revision. The facts are crystal clear and 100% scientific; after knowing these facts, you'll come to the conclusion that there is no other possibility other than the presence of a mighty creator who planned this all.

2knowmyself is not a simple article website nor it's a place where you will find shallow fixes, but it's a place where you will find effective techniques that are backed by psychology and that are presented in obvious and understandable format. If you think that this is some kind of marketing hype then see what other visitors say about 2knowmyself.
