I believe that is the laziest statement one can make. People who believe in this philosophy are the ones that sit around and wait for things to happen. If you want something in life, you go after it and you don’t quit until it’s yours. Make something of yourself, work your as off, and you won’t be left behind in the world and maybe, just maybe, you’ll get to do what you love every day.
If you have something or someone you love or care about, don’t squander that opportunity. Accept it and embrace it.
