    Do you think its actually humanly possible to get EVERY-SINGLE-THING that YOU Want from the world/people/Life? How would others let this even happen? Do you? What kind of person does it take, if you think it possible?

    I don't think it possible. What I got barely pays my bills. I'm not living how, where, and in a state I want to.
    I believe people are too smart to let someone walk all over them, and smart enough to let them go if that person does.
    I think a person would have to have personal lower standards of themselves and others to take EVERY SINGLE THING that crosses their path as Enough, just Right, and exactly what they've always wanted from/in their Lives.

    ... What do you think about all this?

    Practices having no expectations. I fail miserably at it.

    Nope. I think everyone has this idea that life owes us something - when in reality that's not true at all.

    "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars."

    - Les Brown



    If you wanna be happy and successful in life, you gotta dream big and can't be afraid of hard work or failure. Don't lead a life full of regrets and 'what ifs'. See something, go for it; what do you have to lose really? YOLO

    We turn to that renowned philosopher, Mick Jagger, who famously said, "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

    I remember reading that in school. She's a true inspiration to everyone.

    Agree with most the other posters.

    You won't always succeed at everything, but the moment you stop trying to succeed is when you have truly failed.

    I would guess most lives don't turn out exactly as imagined; however, so long as people continue to strive for what they want, they will eventually see successes. Things may not end like a fairy tale, but you can try to get as close as possible.

    I think it's impossible to control the world around you and circumstances to make things work for you but it's possible to adopt a mentality in which you can see the positive in even a negative situation and from this you can still get everything you want in life, that make sense?

    But yes don't have expectations, that's the key and look at things from different angles.
