I have always trusted that eventually the reason will triumph.
That if there are the conditions for something to happen and engagement from somewhere to make it happen, at the end it will indeed happen.
Or that if someone is a jerk, he might go up and progress in his career faster than others but then there will be the time when he will go down. And anyway he will probably not have an happy life.
And that if someone deserves something, if he does not get discouraged, he will finally get it. The reason will triumph.
Of course, with some flexibility and common sense.
In my life this has happened. Maybe I was not expecting too much, but I arrived more or less where I wanted to be.
