is it a curse or luck?

Sometimes its so hard to determine about things that we've been into. If we got something nice and great we do say "I was lucky...." and if that was extremely bad then we say "I was cursed..." I sometimes felt that i am not the lucky one in my family. I feel so much pain of not achieving something for myself.There are so many things i want to succeed on. I have many dreams to do. How could I do all of these things that even until now I haven't accomplished? How much time do i have to wait? Until when should i have to hold on? Is there any short way to success? Is there anyone who could share and give same answers to my question?

You have to be ready to accept failure because in reality, they're just merely feedback. You have been acting a certain way that's why you're getting this feedback. This only means you have to act different in order for you to receive different results.

this already happened when two boxers (of different religion) pray to their God before the boxing match.... the one who win will say that His God is a true God because His God made Him a Winner over his opponent's God.... while the looser is a curse, because His God did not make him win because His God has a different plans for him to his life and not that Boxing.....

It is normal between the two fighter praying according to their faith and your right if something wrong it said unlucky if won blessed - but the reality is like a electric current with two pole the negative and possitive which always have purpose why it is happening. God always do that because we human are always expecting good from God, if not good they curse God...

Its depend what you dream of. If you dream to be on prince William place well you should adjust your dreams a little bit. But if you dream to be more successful at work, more professional,have better salary then you should ask your self another question. Do I have every possible tool to achieve this success? Do I have knowledge and qualifications? How much I can sacrifice to achieve my goals? Its never to late. If you want something really bad you do everything to reach for it. Success depend of your determination and will. I wish you all the best my friend.

Sorry but I will agree with you or some saying in one situation that you cannot expected then say "not lucky" - no things like that because everything in our life is controlled and knows by one force - he is God. On the same way with some saying "was cursed". All things are allowing to happen to us in order to serve the purpose of God. In your case my suggestion would be tried you very best, be patience, perceiverance and decipline to yourself with determination. send me a private message to tell something good and suggesting something for your success..

well, this is not case only with you. All of us encounter such situations in our life. Definitely, i do believe in luck but anything which you deems fit for yourself is definitely not in your favor, and one gets to know it after sometime, any thanks God for not having that thing or opportunity. And concerning short way to success, first you should set your goal. you have not mentioned what kind of success. is it financial, having a good married life, having elite position in education etc. its all dependent on you.

The answers depend on your beliefs and how you view your life. When good things happen to me, I thank God for them. I believe them to be blessings. A reward for something good I did, or an expression of His love for me. Life has the habit of turning good opportunities into bad ones. I believe that these are challenges that God gave me to strengthen my faith and my person. I also believe that sometimes the devil works to weaken my faith. There's no shortcut to success. Success is actually just a point of view. What is success for you?

hi there is no one who is cursed here. take things lightly and look at the positive sides of life. like: existing on earth is our first success,having a family is second, gaining friends is third, coming here in mylot is fourth and so on. think that when you have a problem there is always that someone out there who has a bigger problem than what you have.(a mentality that i think helped me to become more positive in life) if you want to achieve something in your life then do not just wait. do something to reach it. work hard, persevere cause there is no such thing as shortcut to success. organize your time and have a plan in your life and of course do not forget to ask THE ONE ABOVE for His guidance on the path you are choosing. because hard work will not succeed if it is not His will. Have a nice day airen.

I guess one of the ingredients of success is proper mindsetting. A person who wants to be successful ask only one important qestion, Will it be worth it? Because if it is going to be worth it will not matter anymore how difficult will it be.

If you really have dreams and goals you want to accomplish I would suggest sitting down and writing them in an order you would like to complete them. Then, just start picking away at them. As you accomplish one goal you will be more excited to start the next and so on, the snowball effect!!!
