'If Something Isn't Happening, You're Not Ready For It'

"If something is not happening for you it doesn't mean it's never going to happen. It means you're not ready for it." ~ Unknown

It's easy to get discouraged when you experience failure, especially when that failure appears to be monumental. We all want to be ready to be great right now, but things don't always work out that way. It's important to remember that if something isn't working, you shouldn't just give up. Instead, give it time. If you keep trying you'll be ready at some point down the line and you'll eventually achieve your goal.

    This is what I tell myself about dating.


    Dunno I could really use a paying job right now.

    Such a great quote for the long term unemployed that have skills, spent their lives looking and applying and failing. Wasting away their limited funds and ending in depression and all that entails and worse.

    This phrase, quote or whatever should be dismissed for worthlessness or at the very least it's lack of universality.

      Sorry but if you have skills and actually look for a job, you'll get it. It's not hard to get a job if you are willing to work.

        I'm completely ready to train to become a police officer, yet I'm colour-blind and cannot do it? Where is the sense in this quote?

      What makes me laugh is people who think they are better than the job they are actually qualified for.

    what is this, tumblr?

    This quote is worthless... try telling this to a family living in a refugee camp, all they want is the ability to live and go about life without fearing for their safety and health. The reason they don't have those things is not because they are not ready for it... there are a million reasons why, but this quote is something that rich white people would live by, but nothing more. (PS I am a rich white male)

    personally I think it should read... if something isn't happening for you it doesn't mean it's never going to happen. it means it's not ready for you yet.
