How do we truly get to where we are? Is there a trajectory in which we unknowingly follow as it guides us with gentle whispers or sometimes full fledged shoves? Sometimes you think you know where you want to go, where you want to be, who you want to be… but then when you become it you don’t like it. Sometimes you do know what you want and you pursue it endlessly without any success. But sometimes, when you least expect it, it happens… you get to where you wanted to be all along and you love it. When that happens, you feel like you have a purpose.

How did you get there? With a little preparation, hard work, and by not giving up you were able to get lucky at the right time. Maybe someone believed in you and gave you a chance, maybe you earned your right to sit at the table of greats, but it wouldn’t have happened without all the hard work and the luck that came your way. Take a chance to get a chance.
