How you see the world can determine your degree of happiness, success, and pride toward the end of your life. Most, however, see the world as somehow owing them something, as success as something dependent on circumstance and not on the man.
If you think that circumstance dictates who you are and what you accomplish in life, you’re fucked.
I can’t put it any other way. If you know, however, that you determine where you end up in life no matter where you’re born or who you’re born unto, then you have the power to exact whichever reality you wish to exact, and create whatever life you want to create.
Choose the latter.
