Divergence of a law
I suggest an alternative concept to one that already exist. Something that will contradict pessimists, and urge them to consider more positive options. The one that defies convictions.
Mindset and perception is what reality is to life. You are what you do and, if you want it bad enough, you’re a bad-ass. Every situation is a challenge you can handle. But here’s the deal,
The same thing happens in reverse. Hating what you do, everything becomes an obstacle. In worse cases, you judge yourself a failure, and unworthy of the challenge. In both of these cases, emotions are at play.
But here’s where it gets tricky,
Too many people let their emotions dictate their choices. In that same regard, their state of being becomes predetermined. Then, you get to hear excuses for bad behaviors. It’s unavoidable.
“Why did you punched him?”
“I did it because he made me mad!”
Truth be told,
Emotions can’t dictate reactions but, stimuli does. It’s all about where you put your focus. For example, I was an emotional person and I used to get jealous about a lot stupid things.
Interestingly enough, I wouldn’t consider asking myself if I was insecure. Giving in to a negative feeling is a defense mechanism to neglect one’s reality. The truth is easier to welcome when it doesn’t hurt. Luckily, I’ve changed.
“If the person made you mad, you could’ve just left.”
When you look at life on a positive light, you avoid things that can jeopardize it. When you put yourself in the best position to feel blessed; you are.
Lots of people curse themselves into feeling less than nothing. It’s unfortunate to say, but for that reason; they are. This may sounds like a binary conclusion, I know. But, It’s actually much more than that. It’s a mentality.
I asked myself once If there is a contradiction to Murphy’s law? In short, the law states “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. That sentence got me puzzled for a long time.
Upon research I discovered something interesting. No one actually knew exactly where the law originated from. It’s a knowledge that had been around for ages and Edward Capt. A. Murphy just happen to give it a name.
He did it after finding that a transducer was wired wrong, he cursed the technician responsible and said, “If there is any way to do it wrong, he’ll find it.” Murphy kept a list of “laws” and added the new one to his repertory.
He made “Murphy’s law” famous after he had given a press conference. Aerospace manufacturers used it in their ad. Then, it got picked up by news and magazine ads. Later, several variations to the law came.
I like a little paradox version of it, it goes like this:
“The universal aptitude for ineptitude makes any human accomplishment an incredible miracle. “
The law even has a mathematical formulation:
1 + 1 -> 2
The -> is actually a hand with an index finger pointing to the right. Which means “hardly every equals”.
Since they were any defining one, I never got to dig deep in the philosophy behind Murphy’s law. Instead, I got inspired to make one my own. To me everything — good or bad — is and depends on how on you define life.
Is you life written, or are you the architect? There is no right or wrong answer to this question, only view points. How you internalize this will depend on your perception and mindset on life. Your reality.
People that surround themselves with the negatives are infected by the disease and usually become unhappy and depressed. The same isn’t true for the ones that leverage connections with the successful.
Everything can happen, it is written. But, into which extend anything can and will happen is up to you to define. The only thing you know for sure is your date of birth and that you’ll die. You get to uncover the rest along the way.
It all starts with self-awareness. Everyone is a little different, but when you want something you usually don’t debate. You go for it. Most of you are just trapped in the “free will”, wasting time by not making choices.
Don’t let your emotions choose your life. The truth is, It’s never the right time for anything. You don’t need to know what you want. If it makes you happy; do. I might be oversimplifying some things but, it’s my truth.
“Everything done right, will eventually be alright”.
