..almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it. Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of ‘psst’ that you usually can’t even hear because you’re in such a rush to or from something important you’ve tried to engineer.
Which is why we learn soon enough to not go out of our usual to engineer a favourable situation. Chances are we’ll mess things up and that which we had sought becomes more difficult to acquire. Let destiny have its way; go about your business quietly, but of course pay close attention to the silence; pay attention to when a bell toils almost silently but surely – that is the proper signal to proceed towards your dreams.
