Who has the responsibility of making you what you want to be?
Is it your parents?
Is it your teachers?
Is it your friends and colleagues?
Is it the government of your country?
When one is talented, who has the responsibility of giving them opportunities to exploit their talents?
I want to tell you that you are the main architect of your destiny in partnership with God. If you sit back and wait for someone to come along and give you what you want in this world, you may wait all your life in vain.
Many young people and even grown-ups think that because they are good, someone should recognize their talent, come look for them and give them the place that they deserve. What a great mistake! Of course, it does happen; but that is very rare.
You have to go for your place in this world. You have to ask for the space you want to occupy. You have to assert yourself. You have to tell the world what you want. You have to ask the world to give you what you want.
Ask the world to give you what you want and the world will give you what you ask for. Sit and wait for the world to give you what you want and the world will give you what you do not want.
In this world you must count on the strength of your muscle before you count on the strength of the muscles of others. This means you must define your place and go for it. Wait for no one to give you anything.
It is true that no one succeeds alone. We need the help of others; but those others can only help us. They will not do it in our place.
Your parents will help you; they will not do it for you. Your teachers will help you. They will not do it for you. Your friends and colleagues will help you, but they will not do it for you.
The government of your country will help; but they will not do it for you.
You have to do it for yourself. You have to go out and claim what is yours. You have to ask for what you want the world to give you and get it for yourself.
This is the reality of our world.
Miss it and mess your life.
