Almost everything in life is predictable. We can know what will happen before it happens. See, life has a universal oneness that makes everything similar and identical. Therefore, by looking at one thing, you can see the other. By understanding one thing, you can understand the other. By touching one thing, you are within reach of the other. Awareness of how life works in any field, anywhere on the planet, automatically makes you an expert of what happens, might happen, will happen everywhere else.
Some among us, philosophers, scholars, writers, and scientists made/make it even simpler breaking our entire existence into natural laws, rules, and principles.
Sowing = Reaping
No matter what you do, no matter who you do it with, no matter how long you do it for, and no matter the reason, just or unfair, you will only reap what you sow. What you shout out, comes back screaming at you. If you put 20% of excellence in the making of your product or service, automatically you'll get 20% of an excellent final product or service.
If you put 80% of accuracy into your communication, automatically you'll get back 80% of accuracy from response to your communication. If you put 50% of intimacy into your relationship, automatically you'll get 50% of intimacy from your relationship.
In physics, they put it this way;
'for every action, there's an equal reaction.
The world is like a huge empty room filled with echo. As a result, everything you say or do is echoed back to you. Make no mistake about it, the majority of how you perceive life was/is caused by your personal philosophy, interpretations, habits, fears, limitations, flaws, etc. Life as you know it is an echo of who you are. A reaction to who you are.
Who Are You?
Are you timid or confident? Brave or cowardly? Youthful or elderly? Resilient or succumbing? Visionary or narrow-minded? Informed or ignorant? Humble or arrogant? Genuine or deceptive? Friendly or aggressive? Proactive and pragmatic or passive and naive? Productive and creative or defective and dull? An asset or a liability? A destination-aiming ship or an aimless-drifting dry leaf? Optimistic orpessimistic?
What you might be or are is exactly what you perceive life to be. From this perception, all your words and actions will come out only to be echoed back to you in the same measure.
If you paid close attention, you now see how life works. Things don't just happen. They are made to happen.
Don't Wait For Things To Happen. Make Things Happen.
One day in the coldest region of Norway, on a sub-zero freezing winter night, a man sat in front of his stove and shouted 'give me heat!!'. 'give me heat!!' he repeated. 'give me heat!!!' The man went on in frustration for hours, angry at the stove for not giving him heat. He would go quiet for an hour and then scream again 'give me heat!!!!'. The stove, being a caring non-living thing, replied the man, 'give me wood'. 'then I'll give you heat'. The man still in shock replied 'well, I don't have any wood'. The stove still in shock replied 'well, I don't have any heat'.
Rumor has it that both the man and the stove are still in shock.
Moral of the Story
Everything you see around you, big or small, expensive or cheap, more important or less, was/is created or made to happen by someone or something. Therefore, if the things you desire and wish for must happen for you, they must be made to happen. By you.
Don't scream at the stove asking for heat. All you have to do is give the stove wood and heat will become an automatic response of the stove.
The same is true with your communication, relationship, business, investment, marriage, study, work, leisure, country, continent, world, race, future, etc.
