as you struggle and succeed in life, many will not wish that you overtake them or achieve rapid progress; they would wish for your downfall or even death in that case if such happens, one experiences the true meaning of becoming nothing. Thus, in order to be living and overcome these agents of the evil one, you must abide in God forever.

Yes, he did make a better life out of himself after been an ex-convict, but just imagine if he had been thinking before moving, and he had rather spent seventeen years of his life living his dream
In the end, we are responsible for how things turn out for us. Not the gods neither is it the unseen spirits, not fate neither is it destiny, it is simply the cumulation of all the choices we have made; one choice after another!
Live to be, don't live to please, what good is life if not well lived. Be about purpose, you have not come this far to end up as a none-entity (nonentity). There is something about you that draws you to something new waiting to be unleashed, open your mind and follow the ray of light. No time is too late and none is too early. Live to be!
Take it a step at a time even when you cannot see the big picture, it will come together in due time but you have to start first. Don't take life's beautiful gift back to the grave, live your dreams and start that now!
You can be whatever you choose to be, but you first have to choose before you can be. Choose wisely, don't let fear push you into settling for something less than you deserve and don't let the noise of the crowd pull you into something you are not cut out for.
