If you are a person who believes that everything happens for a reason, you have achieved an attitude that strengthens you. And if, on the other hand, you feel like a victim of injustice and you don’t understand why, you have a lot to learn. Life is a roller coaster where good and bad alternate. There are moments when we are happy and we feel that the world is smiling at us. But there are others in which adversity mistreat us. And this is the reality of all.
The difference between the happy and the unhappy is in the attitude with which they stand in front of life and face those moments that cause them unhappiness. Some give up and shut up crying and lamenting. But those who really succeed are those who analyze the moment they live and are convinced that everything happens for some reason.
What does it mean to believe that everything happens for a reason?
Believing that everything happens for a reason implies understanding that Most of the responsibility for what happens to you is yours. There are behaviors and attitudes that are the cause of damaging events. Which?
- Lack of information and ignorance
People who go through life improvising, without investigating the circumstances they live, without paying attention to the moment, suffer more negative events. Are those that they talk about ‘bad luck’, and what they do is transfer responsibility.
- Lack of anticipation and forecasting
Anticipating is foreseeing, it is analyze the consequences of an action that has not yet been performed. People who do not anticipate, who do not have the habit of evaluating the consequences of a decision or action, will not understand that everything happens for some reason.
If you have a business idea and invest all your money in it without analyzing the market, for example, and the business fails, it is not because of bad luck that follows you.
And what part does God play in the reason that what happens happens?
People of faith believe that God arranges the events they face each day. But religions recognize that there is free will, which is the possibility of choosing one’s own path. And in that possibility fit, precisely, the life strategies that we have presented.
Ask yourself ‘why is this happening to me?’ and discover that there is an opportunity for change for something good to happen.
If you activate your mind, your intelligence, your instinct, surely the bad things will be reduced and the good things will predominate.
