I want to encourage you to realize that your circumstances do not define your path in life, the choices you make and the opportunities to serve others will shape your success in life. Make your decision your choice, others can influence you or you can influence others but you will determine by your actions will determine if you are a leader or follower.
When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world."
