“Up to a point a man’s life is shaped by environment, heredity and movement and changes in the world about him; then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow. The wish, however, must be implemented by deeds.”- Louis L’Amour
You can only make excuses for things that have up until now happened to you for so long. Then you have to take the moment by the horns and start making things happen in your life. This quote clearly defines my thought pattern. To every man who finally approaches this point in his life….welcome. You are in good company.
