Hang in there. Some situations are beyond your control. Surrendering and being still until your storm passes is not a sign of weakness. Sometimes it's the best and only thing to do.
No matter how good a person you are or how much preparation you make, stuff happens. Hold on. Remain optimistic. Trust that God has an answer and a breakthrough for you. And most of all, don't quickly label yourself a bad person, a failure or a loser. Whether you're looking for a job, praying for restored health, trying to close a sale, buy a home, fighting depression/grief or waiting for "that" phone call...don't give up. We all go through seasons in our life, but the reasons aren't always obvious or revealed.
Read Joshua 1:9
I’m sure you and I share the same past experience of driving to a new location.
You drive a long time feeling like you lost your way. The journey is taking too long and you’re just about ready to turn around and go back home. You were frustrated because you were in a new and unrecognizable place. When you stopped to ask for directions, you discovered you were so close. You took a deep breath exhaling the frustration. You finally reached your destination and glad you didn't give up.
Are you feeling lost, frustrated and about to give up on your goal to lose weight, buy a home, find a job, get clean and sober, become debt free, graduate from college or jump start your business?
You could be closer than you think. Don’t give up. The reward from your efforts will be worth it. Focus on right thoughts, right words, right action, right relationships and being in the right place. Stay on your path. Celebrate your small steps toward your victory. Your thoughts and habits determine which path you take in life. Your dominate thoughts have power. What do you think about all day?

Your thoughts determine your destiny.
Your behind follows your mind.

“Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won.” ~ Ayn Rand
