I read this quote a year or two back –
“No one has free will until they are an adult, and by then the choices that were made for them, have already set them on a course that gives limited freedom in the choices to be made.”
Opportunity Structures or situations go a long way in defining what course our life is going to take. But still, we encounter a lot of crossroads where we are masters of our own fate or destiny as you may call it.
“But remember, nothing comes without a price. Our paths are not mapped; they’re made.”
“There are no wrong turns, only unexpected paths.”
“The obstacle in the path becomes the path. Never forget, within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition.”
“Everybody knows that. The missing step is always the next.”
“Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because it’s stormy now doesn’t mean that you aren’t headed for sunshine.”
