Why is my life not improving?

I am trying to be a good and spiritual person. I meditate and read spiritual books, but despite all of my efforts, my life is not improving. Why?

Many people experience this situation, they may feel also being betrayed, frustrated, alone. And because every person is different, there are also different reasons, why is the life situation of certain people not improving. The most common reason is, that people didn't understand the spiritual ideas properly and deeply. The biggest mistake is, that people take some idea, which they like and this idea later serves them as an excuse instead of using it as a light on their spiritual journey. Life is change and it is not proper to solve all situation with just one approach. Life is the art of finding proper behaviour and reaction in every situation.
The best example is the concept “what should happen, it will happen and what is happening, should be happening”. When this truth helps people to understand the „bad“ situation, not to blame yourself and regret, and they can learn from it and not repeat the mistakes again, then it is good. When people use this saying just as an excuse for mistakes they made, not trying to improve or change things for future, then it is wrong.
When people want to progress on their spiritual path, they have to be really sincere with themselves. That means, people have to be able to see both: good and also bad sides of their personality and behaviour. This is another big barrier of spiritual progress: not to see or to hide personal weaknesses.
Another problem is Meditation and spiritual practices. There are many and many instructions and descriptions, how to meditate. But there are only few basic information, which help beginners to find right way and go the right direction. Then it can happen, that people feel no benefits from meditation, so they say, it doesn't work. Or people want to achieve something so much, that they sit many years „on the same place“, thinking that this is only right way of meditation... and pretend something. The basic thing in meditation is to observe thoughts from the position of observer and to control one's mind. Only then can people move forward.
The third reason for not moving anywhere is, that people are not able to apply knowledge from books into normal life. Many people read spiritual books, they say „what a perfect book“, I have learned a lot, and they stop there. They live their life without any change, just the same way as before. But the truth is, that if we don't change, situation won't change. If people understand, that without personal effort they cannot expect any result, they have in their hands powerful tool for their transformation and happiness...
