We all have our lessons learned. We all draw on some memes that describe how you think about life in general. At least, that is how I work. A few ideas that got stuck with me, rang a chord and that will be used to explain life or at least patterns seen.
And this is one that I use consistently. It not only stuck because of the drawing. Here it is:
The heading says “it all depends on sitting in the right box”. Left box offers chicks for cuddling – the right box offers shark fodder both at the same price.
Whoever did this was a genius. It explains so many things. Just think of rich vs poor parents, born in a rich country with access to Corona vaccination or not. Or think of the great teacher in your parallel class, the genetic disposition of someone, etc.
Now, I am not saying that everything in life is luck. I neither say that you should accept your box as a stoic. Of course, you need to work on your life. Of course, an initial disadvantage might proof to become the challenge that eventually changes you into a better person – and the like.
But it still is very much a game of luck.
