Man is not judged on the basis of what he has inherited - physically, mentally or spiritually. It is how much he has moved ahead given his set of circumstances that determine his place of standing among fellow human beings. The cosmos asks not what your forefathers left you - what they left you was of their own making, their karma.
What have you achieved?
Have you, with the loser's backbone, decided to sit in a corner and mope about how unfair life has been to you, even as the world around you passes by laughing, or have you been a man in the truest sense of the word, picked up your belongings, stood up tall and addressed the world thus, "I shall make my own destiny."
Of course there will be difficulties. Naysayers abound will doubt your very reason to exist, people will mock and laugh at you, at your weakling-like efforts to stand up. It is for you to show the world that the small steps you take towards shaping your future are not going to be enfeebled with thoughts of self-doubt, but are only the precursor to earth-trembling footsteps of a giant.
"Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached!"
