Nobody is self-made

On leveraging our circumstances for growth

Nobody is self made.

We are all products of our circumstances and communities.

Whether we’re given opportunity through fortune or motivation from poverty or abandonment, our circumstances are the soil from which our lives emerge, grow, and evolve.

True success is living authentically true to one’s own nature.

The first step in doing that is fully integrating, appreciating, and employing the circumstances we’ve inherited.

The easiest way to lose site of our true nature is to believe we’ve done any of this on our own.

We are benefactors and stewards.
