Circumstances happen. We do not choose our own name, our genetics, our nationality, our physical attributes, or our religion, in our beginning. We have no power over where and when we are born, nor who our parents are.
However, from that point on, the lives that we live, are our own. Everything that we think, feel, and do is a creation; a manifestation, you might say, of our own free will.
Regardless of what circumstances you find yourself in at the moment, you have power way beyond what you are aware of to affect change, if you decide to do so; and no matter who or what you are, somebody who started with much less has accomplished more, with less hesitation, and in less time.
Success in anything, in life itself, is driven, is accomplished, is doable with awareness and realization of these truths, which we all recognize, because they are written into our DNA, because we are humans.
As for myself, I will now write this book, because I can, and I will.
