Octet rule is due to the atoms wanting to be stable. With 8 electrons, its shell will be full and that stabilizes the electrons. This is similar to how when we did orbitals, 3d^9 would take an electron from 4s^2, because it wants to fill up it's orbital to be full (3d^10). So in the case of electrons, most of them need 8 electrons to fill up.
