As much as you have the deepest abiding respect for the courage, character and conviction of an icon who assailed insurmountable odds to place an enduring mark on this universe, that icon is not you.

Your odds will never be the same as anyone else’s even if both of you are bent on the same achievement.
Can you overcome the unpredictable nature of this reality to beat the odds even better than your icon did. Absolutely.
