What is the best plan for your life?

When things don't go as we expect, is that always bad?

Everyone has plans and dreams. But if our well-laid plans fall apart, we might begin to ask ourselves questions. Questions like "Why didn't this turn out the way I had hoped?" In my own life, I've had plans that have failed because I tried to push them through with willpower. Looking back, I am glad that some of my schemes didn't work out. That way, I have been taught a little more about the difference between God's will and human will.

So what is wrong with human will? Isn't it essential for survival? Many consider it as the ingredient that gives an individual drive, stamina, and the ability to accomplish goals. Not all successful people, though, could be described as willful.
