Life is a Chance
Chance plays a huge role in our lives, much larger than anybody gives it credit. All of our upbringing, training, adaptive skills, plans and goals are subject either to chance or providence, the latter often being easier to accept. We live our whole life taking advangage of the odds that favor us and the plans we make. The hard truth is that by chance alone there will be people who are lucky all their life and others for whom nothing will work out as they hoped. And, of course, the impact that luck, or chance, can have on our attitudes and character are also huge. Most people accept that chance (or providence) has played a role in their lives, but highly successful or unsuccessful people tend either to credit or blame themselves entirely.
