Lots of time in life, we have ambitions and things that we would like to have happen.
Lots of time in life, we cannot make those things happen because the environment is not conducive.
It is in times like this that I think about the battle scene of Jedi Qui Gonn Jinn and Darth Maul.
While waiting for a force shield separating himself from his attacker, Jinn kneels calmly, preparing his mind and body for the battle ahead. Maul, on the other hand, works to keep his rage stoked, so that he can attack viciously.
I recommend pooling your mental resources.
