Personal Finance Round-Up: Life Is Not a Coincidence

hands opportunityWhen something unpleasant happens and no one can be pinned as at fault, they call it a coincidence. Coincidences are everywhere – it was just chance that they happened to be there at that place and time. But when something great happens to someone, they call that an opportunity.

In my eyes there is no difference between opportunity and coincidence. You can’t control what will happen next in your life but you have to look at every situation as a way to make your life and the lives of those around you better.

I’m not the only one that feels this way either. Matt Gartland discusses coincidence in this article entitled There Are No Coincidences, Only… It’s an inspiring read with a concept that can be applied to many areas of life.
