Life can sometimes feel like it is completely arbitrary. But believing that everything happens for a reason will help us find reasons to persevere even when things get difficult.

Our lives can get complicated sometimes. It can also seem like there is no rhyme or reason to the events that take place in our lives. That belief can easily make us feel discouraged and derail us from our goals.

It is important, therefore, to find ways to keep chasing our dreams, even when it seems impossible. And besides the willpower needed to pursue any goal, we also need to train our minds to think positively so we can feel determined.

It can be difficult to think that everything that happens to us has a purpose, but it can also be helpful. During some difficult times, this may be the only thing we need to keep going.
