Evolution is Important
"I am not the same man I was 35 years ago. And I hope that five years and ten years from now, I'll be a better man, a more mature man, a wiser man, a more humble man and a more spirited man to serve the good of my people and the good of humanity."
Instead of looking at life with a closed lens, we must be willing to sacrifice and learn from our experiences. We are tested each day and expected to put forth the effort in becoming a well rounded individual. No matter how difficult or traumatic a situation may seem, we must be willing to take the time to reflect and learn from our mistakes and misfortunes. Remember that your future is contingent on your reactions and recourse - no one else can control your destiny other than you.
