Whatever Can Go Wrong Will Go Wrong

Life is like the ride of a roller coaster where we feel it’s never gonna go up and our heads will explode. That moment is when most people snap and throw up. I remember my legs were shivering when I got the tickets of my first ever ride of a roller coaster, it was too late to back out due to peer pressure. My friends were mocking me while I was sitting with a firm grip on the handlebar. The bell rang and the ride was about to start that I realized something.

Real-life is scarier. You don’t get anything to hold onto nor do you get the chance to skip the ride. The unanticipated life patterns can make any person snap. The intellectuals are tested by love, strong men are defeated by sapience, and the virtuosos face a lack of opportunities.

To cope with it, we usually diverge ourselves into pleasantries which is also the reason why the majority of people smoke — Escapism. We overlook the fact that unexpected & unpleasant happenings are going to get us anyway.

Life is like a box full of chocolates that you can not refuse, and you never know what you’re gonna get. The best possible thing you can do is to close your eyes and get on with it. You might get bitter chocolates at first but keep persistence and keep moving. You WILL get sweet chocolates eventually. Do not give up on a few bitter chocolates, you might miss the rest of plenty sweet chocolates.

Life is surely unexpected, it can be anything but unfair. It is our broken idea of life that makes us think it is unfair to some people. If you could prepare yourself and decide actions by anticipating life patterns then it denies the rule of its being unexpected. This attribute is essential for a fair life. If people could predict life, then few people with power and money will accumulate all the resources and control everything.
It is the unexpected events of life that hold every person accountable. To be honest, “expected life” would be boring!

Sometimes life puts you on a difficult long road and all you have got is your feet, so keep moving. People who invested in bitcoin when it was worth two large pizzas, kept patience for years, and became millionaires overnight. When it went from 12k USD to 20k USD, people speculated its value to be 40K USD in the next three months so a significant number of people invested all of their assets in it without considering what could go wrong. They lost all of their fortunes when the bitcoin crashed.
Did you ever face the exact question in the exam that was the only one you left? This is life. If you think you have been through enough and it could not possibly get any worse, think again! You loosen up one step and life will put you on the ground.

I can not emphasize enough that you should never ignore a possible series of events or potential failures. Let’s talk about the grand launch of the new iPhone with the facial recognition feature. The technology that enables Face ID is some of the most advanced hardware and software that Apple has ever created. The probability that a random person can unlock your phone is approximately 1 in 1,000,000 as claimed by the company. With all these incredible stats, its demonstration failed during its launch ceremony — What A Shame! All success stories and the brilliant record was put aside when the company had to face a lot of controversies and criticism on media due to this failure.

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.

In November 2019, the video went viral of Elon Musk, CEO 

Tesla Motors

, when the unbreakable window of the cybertruck broke when it was put to test. Even then the CEO kept his calm and said “There is always room for improvement” and continued the event after lightning up the situation by a joke. Now imagine the same situation but this time, Elon Musk got carried away by emotions, blames luck in his mind, and stares the staff with an annoyed face. Well then, the cybertruck might not have made to the record-breaking 250,000+ pre-orders.

There are two take-aways from these events:

  • Whatever can go wrong will go wrong
  • It is not about what went wrong but how you respond to it

The best way to live is to accept whatever piece of chocolate life gives you. You can either live these moments happily or by whining — the choice is yours. Broaden your imagination, live with perspective, and think. Every possible series of events is happening all at once. Live this way and nothing will surprise you. Anything that life gives you will be something you have already anticipated. Embrace the unexpected events of life instead of escaping. The beauty of life patterns lies in its unexpectedness.

The title is murphy’s law which has a bad impression on most people. If they realize that everything in this world happens for a reason and that life is fair, they will be able to see the positive side of murphy’s law:

Whatever Can Go Right Will Go Right

This law tells us nothing but the truth about life. Every person’s life has a clock that is ticking. Life does not wait for your graduation, promotion, or marriage. Live every moment and make the best out of it.

Life is a railway track,
Straight and fixed..
We travel through it..
Crossing mountains & many tunnels,
Including breaks as well signals,
The only thing we should do is,
drive our train safe & on track to reach our beloved destination!
