What is, is. But what will be has the potential to be influenced by your action.
Luck serves those who generate their own opportunities. People who make things, whether they’re artists or entrepreneurs, stand a better chance of good fortune than those who deliver a service designed by somebody else.
Why then, doesn’t everyone just make stuff? Probably because it’s hard. And even harder to do from a place of suffering.
Some people are bound by circumstances outside their own control.
While others are caught within cycles of suffering they generate for themselves.
Suffering usually starts from an unavoidable place, but it lingers for as long as we allow it to feed on the scraps of our minds.
Generating anything of value from a place of suffering is more work than it needs to be.
Take the time to solve your sufferings. Then get to work on the rest.
