There’s this very real and very palpable sense of feeling like you’re stuck, unable to make any progress. You’ve been working as hard as you can and you have nothing to show for it. You’re powerless to make even the slightest improvement in your own life. Or, worse, you feel that you’re at the mercy of forces outside your control.
