When executed poorly, it sends a very, very [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop bad message]]: HardWorkHardlyWorks, so don't bother pursuing what you want -- the universe will provide it (but only when you decide that you don't need it after all). It can also [[BrokenAesop break the lesson]] if the thing in question was specifically portrayed as wrong, but rather serves as a means to convey another lesson.

* Riku of the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' franchise gets this in his character arc. In the prequel, Birth by Sleep, he is chosen by Terra from the beginning, when he and Sora are much younger, and before Kairi joined the islands, to wield the keyblade to alleviate his boredom from always being on the same islands and visit other worlds. However, come [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Kingdom Hearts 1]], he loses it upon becoming one with the darkness and so the keyblade chooses Sora instead. The rest of the game has Riku aligning with Maleficent, being tricked into thinking Sora replaced him and Kairi for Donald and Goofy, and berating Sora for his failure to protect Kairi. He briefly gets the keyblade at Hollow Bastion, but upon being defeated and Sora getting the keyblade back, Riku becomes desperate for power to the point of allowing Ansem to take over his body. When Kairi regains her heart and Sora loses his, Riku makes a HeelFaceTurn and finally breaks free in time to close the door to Kingdom Hearts. From there, he spends Castle Oblivion fighting off the darkness in his heart and stops trying to have the keyblade. Finally, come Dream Drop Distance, [[spoiler:not only is he acknowledged as a keyblade wielder, but after finally rescuing Sora, is chosen over him to become a Keyblade Master, the highest rank]].

* At the end of ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'', [[spoiler: Okabe has saved the world and the woman he loves, but due to TimeTravel being involved, nobody but him will [[WistfulAmnesia (consciously)]] remember [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold all the hardships and struggles he faced]] to EarnYourHappyEnding.
