Karma is science...do good

Unexpected things, both good and bad, will inevitably happen. The commitment to your central purpose also helps with stability in those situations. It is what makes you get up when you get knocked down. The moment something does not work out like you planned you learn from happened and get on to something even better. Good unexpected things will also happen. It just doesn’t matter!! All you can ever do is control yourself. You cannot control yourself if you do not know what you are trying to do, and you are not really in control if what you are trying to do cannot withstand influence from what you can’t control. It is circular logic, but it makes sense.

With that said, why should you have a goal that is good for society? There are a lot of reasons, but one is that your actions set off a chain of events that go on throughout time. Hurting or helping does way more than could ever imagine. It also is a lot better for you in the long run. People will like you more and support what you are doing. This provides improved work ethic and focus among other things. The extra passion that is evident will also help inspire others to do their own projects or get involved in yours. Would you be more likely a give favor to someone who uses their resources to help crime victims or a person interested in getting a fancy watch to show off? Good people do not finish last. You just need to be honest about what your actions are really focused on accomplishing and make sure you sorted out you own life first(IMPORTANT..more late). You will still be able to get fancy things due to the byproduct of goals achieved in the striving for good. It’s easier to get nice things when they are not you main focus because those are less likely to cause inspired work associated and skillset utilization that occurs with a proper focus. You also won’t get the same sense of satisfaction or develop into a person that you and others will like as much. It is fine to make the buying of non-essential material objects goals if they add motivation like they do for most people. This example is meant to highlight the fact that a central purpose beneficial for society promotes ideas, decisions, and actions in a way material objects cannot. A fancy wacth is not helpful to dealing with a conflict with coworker. A purpose to benfit society will focus your thought and lead to actions that resolve the situation in way that is optimal for the lives of each individual, the individuals families, and how all those effects fit into the broader community. Consistently thinking like that and becoming better at it creating those types of outcomes is going to be very good for you in the long as people notice and want to work with you. The watch mindset is more likely to help you put the blame on other people as you focus on yourself. Helping other helps you! Call it karma if you want, but is not mysterious magic. It is the science of human behavior and common sense. There is a lot of people in the World and having them on your side helps. You get that help structuring your life around purpose that allows you to do your best possible good for society. The actual goals could be anything. A janitor who works long hours to provide for his family and afford them the opportunity to pursue their own goals is way better than better than a Doctor whose personality causes their emotional trauma to their child that then grows up to be lying cheater who hurts more lives. Every action you do has consequences for the future of humanity. What else would you do besides good? You will not live forever, but the effects of what you do and don’t are very real and last forever. Even seemingly unimportant daily interactions. A smile at stranger, following through on your plan with a friend, or picking up somones pencil really do add up and effect the World via how creating positive emotions in others leads them to act. So, there really is no “end.” You work towards goals that allow you to do the best possible good and have satisfying rewards and experiences along the way.
