A level playing field

I’ll say that all most driven, self-motivated people want is a level playing field – an equal shot at the goal we’re working toward. But level playing fields are a myth. Some people are born with a natural talent, some people luck into connections, resources or other advantages that are unavailable to others. What you can control is how hard you work, how deliberate you are in pursuit of your dream and how you deal with the setbacks, the disadvantages and the righteously unfair moments.

Right now I’m in the middle of something. The beginning is somewhat unclear, the future is definitely hazy, but I see the here and now clearly and I have some choices to make. Decisions are hard and no one can help you with this part.
