Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your habits, for they become your character.
And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
Thinking that you are a victim is enough to make you one, regardless of the straw you drew in life. You are not a victim of your circumstances, neither are you an impotent pawn of some generally loving but occasionally wrathful or perhaps ambivalent God. We all must make our way in the world and the idea that someone owes you a living is a childish notion.
If you wish to mature gracefully, you must learn to put childish things away. In this case, you must grow out of the needy, self-centered state that is naturally a part of childhood and grow into a generative state of being that is characterized by radiance and self-control.
