Quote & Reflection: Circumstances

Your circumstances don’t determine where you can go, they determine where you start. – N. Qubein

This quote reminds me of a time and circumstances when I started almost a decade ago when I made up my mind to pursue my career in Psychology. oh my God! If I had believed back then that my circumstances determined where I could have gone, I bet I would have never started walking on this path and reached where I am today. Yes, as mentioned, circumstances do determine where and how you start but the important question is WHY you start. If one knows the answer to that question, s/he can go anywhere and reach to the destination. It gives the freedom from the circumstances. However, one cannot be deny the influences of circumstances in our lives. The important thing is to realize that our attitude becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy in the long run.
