The road we travel is imperfect. The terrain is tough, the path is uphill, working against us and making it difficult to move forward. It’s wise to do all you can – to use influence, hard work, and help from others to find your path.
Too often, people who do this are labeled “control freak”.
What’s smarter: complaining that the entire planet isn’t carpeted or putting on a pair of shoes? There’s enough outside our control. It makes sense to control whatever we can, and ignore the “control freak” label.
