We always say, all humans are equal, but the truth of this world is that everyone is different, and no two human beings are equal. We are born and our fate is decided by various factors, with none of these factors in our control. Our parents and family shape us in the way they want, the society shapes us in the way it wants; we cannot decide what they will do with us- it is up to fate to decide who we will grow up and how.
And we are not equal. Some are born rich, with more money than they need. Some are born poor, and go to sleep starving every night. Some will always be surrounded by love and affection, some are born with anger and hate around them. Some will have great teachers and mentors and will become smart and successful people, some will never have a mentor and will have to carve their own paths.
But we are all humans, and we all have a chance to win against destiny, to disobey what fate has decided for us. We have a choice, eventually we will get one.
As we seek to win over our destiny, we must forget for a moment all the things that holds us down. If we see our past as the reason we cannot get up, as the weight that holds us down, we will never be able to move up and break beyond our boundaries.
We will all have an option one day, to use our true potential. We need just two things- a drive to use this opportunity, and an open mind to find it.
