A lot of us make plans and do our best to achieve the success that we desire. We work really hard to make it happen and hope for the best. And when we achieve the intended outcome, we are joyful and grateful. However, it is really hard when things do not go our way. Sadness overcomes us. We try to make sense of it. We point fingers at everything around us and we basically become a terrible version of ourselves. To accept when things go our way is easy but not so much when the opposite happens. All of us wants our efforts to pay off. But the fact of the matter is, the outcome is not within our control. What we can do is to ensure that we have a solid plan and that we give our best shot. If we can focus on that, the likelihood of us achieving success becomes higher.
