Disruption could be something positive for a few individuals.
Job loss could be considered an example of disruption, which could lead to either of the two situations. A person could either lose hope and become a liability on others, or he could search for new avenues and become a successful entrepreneur.
There is a positive way to look at any problem, a strong man could treat it as a challenge.
There are innumerable examples in all the fields, where the disruptions led to great results like creation of literary masterpieces, new religions or terrific inventions.
When the life goes on at a steady pace without any disruptions, people might tend to become complacent and they might stop growing.
One example from our Indian culture comes to my mind.
Valmiki was a dacoit, once he captured a Sage and was about to behead him. He was surprised to see that the Sage was still calm, even when he was about to lose his life.
He asked, “Why are you not begging for mercy?”
The Sage answered, “My end is my destiny, which is the result of my Karma, I cannot change it, but I am curious to know that for whom are you carrying out these inhuman deeds?”
Valmiki replied, “I am doing it for my wife and my children so that they can enjoy the fruits.”
Sage asked him, “Are they with you in your sins? Will they be ready to share your punishment if you get caught?”
Valmiki was flustered, he told his gang to keep an eye on the captive and he went to his family to get the reply.
His family told, “Your sins are your deeds, we would not share your punishment.”
That moment was his awakening. He understood that he lived under a delusion.
He went back to the Sage to ask for his forgiveness.
Sage taught him the Holy name of Ram. Valmiki created the great epic “Ramayana.”
Valmiki today is celebrated as harbinger poet in Sanskrit literature.
