Why We Don’t Always Get What We Want

Morning_on_the_Beach_-_Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer_-_FranceGood parents teach their children that they will not always get what they want in life. There will be times of disappointments and failure, no matter how much you want some things to happen. As we grow older, we learn that we are not in control of how things will turn out, and we will not always get what we want. But why is that?  Here are some reasons why.

The Way We Ask

They say that if you want something so badly, all you have to do is ask. But the way we ask for what we want may just be the reason why we do not get what we want. Some people want some things so badly that they become too pushy or forceful. Some become too persistent and annoying that instead of getting what they want, they are opposed to and rejected.

On the other hand, some people fail to communicate what they really want and so they get something totally different. Other people cannot read your mind. You have to clearly communicate what you want and prove why you deserve to get it.

Our Impatience

We have to understand that some goals take time to achieve. We sometimes fail to reach our goals due to our impatience. Many people quit or lose interest in pursuing their goal when things are not going so well or when progress is slow. If you really want to get what you want, you will never give up and keep going at it until you get it.

Lack Of Faith

Faith is a driving force that will bring you to victory. When you lack faith in yourself and in what you are doing then you will really find it hard to reach your goal. Believe in yourself and believe that you can achieve what you aim for.

Our Effort To Get it

If you really want something, you should be willing to work hard to get it. Some people talk about the things they want in life but never really did anything to go for them. As they say, success is equal to ten percent inspiration and ninety percent perspiration. If you want something so badly, get up and work hard to get it.

In His Perfect Time

God said that everything we ask in His name will be given to us. Trust that God will give  you what you ask for, if it is what you deserve. He knows what is best for you. Everything will fall into place in his perfect time. If you do not get exactly what you want, do not lose heart. He may have something better in store for you. He is in control of our destiny. He is the giver of all things. Nothing is impossible to God.

We may not always get what we want, but we will always get what we deserve. Everything will turn out fine in the end, as long as we never give up, keep the faith and stay positive.
