To control the outcome...

We often believe that life is what happens to us when we are busy planning our moves in life. We think we cannot control what happens to us in our lives. Many of us believe in Destiny and Luck. To be honest, even i do, but that is no excuse to not work your way through for what you want. I cringe when people say - "I had no other option left, i had to do it."

I strongly believe, there is always an option that one has not thought of earlier. There does not exist a problem in this world that does not have a solution. It's just the incognizance of the solution that forces us to believe that the problem is insolvable. Every door has a key; every business can be turned around; every question has an answer; every thought has a reason. It just needs to be invented or discovered.

If Alexander Graham Bell had not invented the way to talk to other person over a phone, we might not be as technologically advanced as we are today. If Sir Issac Newton did not have the urge to find the reason behind the apple falling on the ground, we would perhaps be still unknown to one of the biggest discovery in physics - Earth's Gravitational force.

I am a staunch believer of the famous theory - if one door closes another one opens. I opine that if we are surrounded by problems and if we are being pushed around by our boss, our peers, or our life, all we need to do is Rebel. If we allow any of them to continue pushing us around, we will persistently feel helpless. Instead of pitying ourselves, we need to think different. We need to ask ourselves - what can i do to control the outcome myself? Einstein defined insanity as 'doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result'. Sometimes, all it takes is a change of perspective to find answers to the biggest questions.

At the end of the day, the outcome of any situation depends on how one looks at/reacts towards it. No matter what happens, it's on YOU to control the outcome; it always has been.
