"We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust our sails."
So it is with the path of life. You didn't seek to be born. You couldn't choose your parents, the part of the earth where you emerge into life, your creed, the color of your skin and, worst of all not even get to choose your own name.
But as you tread on into life and grow to adulthood you can either manage your own way or you can give up your freedom of choice and let others steer you through. But don't put the blame on them if things don't turn out the way you'd like it, because once you let others do the driving, you're not in control, so you can't complain.
So fix your boat, hoist your sails and be ready for the winds or the tide to turn. And when the time and situation is right, set off to follow your dreams.
