Constantly torn between “If it’s meant to be, It will be” and “If you want it, go get it”

Found this quote on Instagram that caught my attention.

constantly torn between “If it’s meant to be, it will be” and “if you want it, go get it”

Two thoughts that tear us apart

  1. If it’s meant to be, It will be.
  2. If you want it, Go get it.

“If it’s meant to be, it will be” —Applicable to relationships, people and on things that we don’t have control, Imagine you like someone a lot, You can say them that you like them but you can’t make them to like you, You just can’t, it’s not in our control.

“You can’t make people love you by giving them more of what they already don’t appreciate”

but also there is another way of looking at it.

It’s kinda hard to put in words, In above If you say them that you like them there might be 50% chance of hearing I like you too, But If you think “If it’s meant to be, it will be” and you didn’t say anything then there is no chance at all, 0% chance of hearing i like you too, The point I’m trying to make is do what you can and don’t just leave everything to fate, You and your actions decide what your future should be.

I relay on this(If it’s meant to be, It will be) little less because i just don’t think this is the right way to do stuff all the time, it might be correct some times but not all the time, finding when to do is the challenge.

If you think “If it’s meant to be, it will be” and do nothing, then you might not get what you want in life. consider this situation where you saw someone beautiful in your college today and you want to become friends with them but they didn’t even see you or they didn’t even know you exist in that college, Now if you follow this “If it’s meant to be, it will be” and do nothing, then you might never get chance to become friends with them, sorry to say this but

“you have to do something in order to get what you want”.

I agree not everything is under your control but you can control what you do, do what you can to get what you want then leave the rest to the fate more like chance or luck.

Reality is nothing but one person’s circumstances colliding with the other person’s circumstances.

You can change your circumstances just by doing what you want to do, not by sitting and thinking “If it’s meant to be, It will be”.

“If you want it, Go get it” —Applicable to things, goals to achieve, dreams to fulfill. My favorite one the sentence itself explains everything If you want something then you should do something about it. there is nothing much to say here. Crystal clear like diamond.

Just don’t sit and leave everything to fate, take your chances, make your decisions, work for what you love, if you don’t like something then do something about it. It’s so simple and also so important.

Do let me know about your thoughts on this, Thanks.
