Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. – Theodore Roosevelt
Meaning of this Quote
Not everyone has got everything. Some spend their life like a fairy-tale, whereas life is hell for some. Some decide what to eat and what not but for some, situations decide what they will eat. Some sweat to keep themselves in shape and some sweat to make ends meet.
Basically, there’s a lot of difference between you and the one you might be comparing yourself to. You might not have what they do. But that doesn’t have the ability to stop you from achieving what you’ve dreamt of. All that you need is determination and a lot of hard work.
You might feel overwhelmed and paralyzed thinking of how much is required to bring a change. However, when you realize that you can break big things into tiniest efforts, you’ll know how and where you can make the change.
You have to do everything you can, no matter what it takes. You have to make the most of what you’ve got, be it more or less. And you have to start from here, right here, where you are, with what you have!
