When you have little control over your surroundings, does it effect your output? Hebrews 12:1-3

Hello to each of you,
In todays world, a lot of our daily activities have to be changed periodically because of the elements of surprise.  In other words, we have little control over the external factors that potentially can determine how effective we are in our jobs.  If failed appointments, changed schedules, and the like take you off course, how do you continue in a direction that helps you maintain a semblance of being effective? Hebrews 12:1-3 should be our model to emulate so that we can persevere even when it makes more common sense to give up!  Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.  Consider Him who endured from sinners such hostility against Himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. If we use this Scripture as our model, our daily walk will stay closer to Thee, even when we want to throw in the towel!  He may give you more than you can handle just so you will depend on Him and not on yourself! 
Your brother in Christ,
