In life, what comes first is destiny, rest all follows or gets put in life, as destiny wills.  For I could not be something which I was destined to be, earlier in time; destiny was not written then for the role to be played; a role which I enact in another point in time.  Thus, think not what you lost in time, think what time is left for you to gain what was seemingly lost, yet, destiny has brought it back to you to become a goal to be accomplished.  Success is never your own story alone, success is also the ultimate fact of reality.
