"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    it is all about what do you feel about what you realy want.
    now you say " the things we want in life never get it"
    So you will not get it .

    Just change the way of your thinking because other people can get all what they want very easily.

    @amenah I agree. Thinking positively is important but also I think being satisfied with what you have got also goes a long way to being happy in life.

    I agree with @mheredge Always you must to think positive. I love sentences whom say "What are thoughts are like is life".
    But I am always anxious when was something done and after that when I waiting some results for that thing that I done. This might to call that I have I very often jitters, but that is in the most causes positive strage of fright.

    When dealing with people remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.
