You need to put some extra effort into making things work now, and you can do it, and it will be worth it. This is a good time to go against the flow — at least that part of the flow that tells you that what you want can’t happen and that you might as well give up. Don’t buy into such things. Keep working on your goals and make for them an environment in which they can flourish. And be imaginative as you approach problems. Its all there for the taking, but it will require effort.
