The equilibrium either lies towards the reactants or towards the products, depending on how stable the chemical species on either side of the reaction are. More stable chemical species are less likely to participate in the reaction, so equilibrium tends to lie towards whichever side has more stable chemical species.
It is uncommon for the reactants and products to have the same stability, so the equilibrium lies toward the side that is more stable because a reaction in that direction will happen more readily.
