There are times in life when things happen that seem to be unexpected and unfair. It is not fun when these things happen but it is necessary. Without bad things, there would be no good things. You need bad in order to see good. Just like you need dark to be able to see light. Without the uncertainties in life, it is boring and plan. These uncertainty in life are what make it sometimes hard but always exciting.
To answer the question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” the answer is simple. Bad things DO happen to good people. The $500 Millionaire loves to remind people that bad things ALSO happen to bad people. It is not because you are good or bad that bad things happen to you. If you are asking that question why not ask why good things happen to good people, or bad things to bad people, or good things to bad people… Our roll on this planet is not to know what will happen next as much as be able to adapt to what happens next. When bad things happen to good people, they should make the best of it. The reason why it is sometimes harder for good people to cope with bad situations is because they have never had to deal with something like this. We have talked about in the past that fear is the uncertainty of being able to handle a situation. When you have never dealt with something, it is hard for some to adapt. Bad people tend to have more bad things happen to them due to poor choices in life so when a bad thing happens to a bad person, it is just another Tuesday.
Understand that there is nothing you can do to know what is coming tomorrow and all you can do is prepare and adapt. The best way the $500 Millionaire has found to prepare is to have no unforgivable regrets. An unforgivable regret is something that you could never do again. It is something that if someone or something was gone tomorrow, you wish you would have done
Keep that in mind the next time something negative happens in your life, it is going to be hard to deal with it, but it is even harder when it leaves you with unforgivable regrets
