While I used to be driven by the possibility of “nobility,” now I’m driven by pragmatism.  I realized that every chance I have, every opportunity I’ve been given, is a privilege and a gift; as I’ve grown older and examined the world around me, I’ve seen that some people are born without chance or opportunity.  Or given such a razor-slim margin of it that they might as well be completely bereft of it.

When I pass up opportunity by knowingly procrastinating or being sloppy, then I have lost my perspective and declared through my actions that I can count on solely on luck. 

That’s not the message I want to broadcast.
