Spiraling out of control can get you into trouble. If you allow yourself, you’ll spiral so far out of control that you won’t recognize your life anymore. You give up the fight, and that’s usually when you become a villain.

“When you’ve been fighting for it all your life, you’ve been working every day and night, that’s how a superhero learns to fly. Every day, every hour, turn that pain into power…” Superheroes lyrics from The Script

It makes sense. You have to fight for what you want. That’s when you spiral into control. And that’s how superheroes are born.

Just look at Batman. Bruce Wayne could have given up after his parents were killed. He could have spiraled out of control and become another villain in Gotham City. Instead, he channeled that energy for good. He spiraled into control and became the Caped Crusader that the city needed.



Control What You Can, Confront What You Can’t

“Energy and persistence conquers all things.” -Benjamin Franklin

Control is important, but you don’t want to get to the point where you become a control freak. Maintain control of your life and direct yourself to where you want to go, but don’t get to the point that you are planning every second of every day.

It’s possible to maintain control and still have a bit of spontaneity.

“I got some tartar-control toothpaste a while back. I’ve still got tartar, but it’s under control.” – Mitch Hedberg

Now, there will always be some things you can’t control. This can include your fears about the future, your anxiety about the past, and even the people who stand in your way. That’s when it’s best to confront them. Establish your dominance. Prove that you’re willing to work through the issues so that you can move forward. Otherwise, you will give them power – and they can become unmovable obstacles for you.

Throughout Sherman Country, there are plenty of ways to seek control. Start with where you want to live. Choose a big, open plot of land that you can build and grow on. Erect something. That’s what she shed.

Seriously, though. You can control your erections and become a superhero. That’s the way these things work. No, we’re not talking about some new DC Comic with a dirty twist. If you control what you build, you start to spiral into control. You can live the life you’ve always wanted. When you work hard to get to where you are, you should enjoy it. The best way to do that is with a steel building on your property.


Superheroes Are Everywhere

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life… That is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan

No one would ever look at Michael Jordan and see a failure. If you’ve ever seen him make a slam dunk, you’d know that he may be one of the closest things we have to a real superhero.

The reality is that heroes are everywhere. It’s because people have decided not to spiral out of control. Instead, they focus on the good and learn how to move forward in life.

Every failure that you experience can be used for good or evil. You can let the failure eat at your soul until there’s nothing left. You spiral out of control until you’re just a shell of the person you used to be. Before you know it, you’re either walking around the grocery store in your bathrobe and slippers, or you’re donning costumes and cackling all over Gotham on a crime spree.

The alternative is to lean into the failure, examine what went wrong, and learn from it. Allow the failure to shape who you are so that you don’t continue to make the same mistakes. Even if you fail again, it’s okay. It’s just more experience to add to your superhero utility belt, right?

Martin Luther King Jr may have said it best with “If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t run then walk if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

If you’ve ever kept moving forward after life has gotten you down, you’re a superhero. You may not have a cape, but that can be easily rectified. Besides, you don’t actually need a cape. A mask or a monogrammed leotard will work just fine, too.


Become a Superhero in Sherman Country

So, where do most superheroes live? Cape Town. You thought I’d say Gotham City or Metropolis, didn’t you? We can’t all be DC superheroes, and that’s okay. However, you can get one step closer by having your own lair.

That’s the thing about heroes. They all have a place where they can go to be alone with their thoughts. Yours doesn’t have to be carved out of stone and filled with bats. And it doesn’t have to contain ice sculptures, either. Instead, it can be as simple as opting for a pole barn.

“You get hurt, hurt ’em back. You get killed… walk it off.”  – Captain America

At Sherman, we have failed countless times, which is why we now spend our afternoons running around in capes and masks. We are superheroes. We have, in fact, learned how to spiral in control because of our failures, and it’s why we’re able to build an incredible lair for you.

Whether you want to live in your lair, use it for ag purposes, or for anything else, we have the ability to build a structurally sound building that can withstand all the elements. It’s fully customizable, so if you want vaulted ceilings, double doors, or anything else, we can make it happen.

If you feel yourself spiraling due to events in your life, stop to assess what’s going on. Grab control so you don’t end up going in the wrong direction. Then, focus on how to live your best life. A Sherman pole barn is a pretty good start, if you ask us. Even if you don’t ask us, we’re telling you that we’re a good start.

Give us a call so that we can give you the kind of lair that any superhero would be happy to hang his cape.
