Every decision you make, every mistakes or achievement you make, all comes down to one question. Do you go left or right? You never know which turn will have a positive effect or a negative effect. Only Time will know that for sure. Of course you're thinking, "Well three lefts make a right." Am I right? That may be true, but are you Time? I didn't think so. Every decision you make is what makes you unique. If everyone took the same turns, then the world would be thrown into chaos. Some of the world's greatest leaders, either good or bad, probably have made different turns at one point, but they both took the same turns to get to the power that they're at.
But that doesn't mean you have to make the same turns as them. Go through whatever turns you feel like. The possibilities are endless. Time is never that linear form you always hear the scientists talking about when they talk about Time. It's more like a big sphere of different decisions and alternate realities. Parallel universes put together from the decisions you make. Don't let others force you into a turn that'll make you regret it. But, then again, you must learn to not live in regret. Seize the moment and make it your's. You may stumble into a turn, but don't worry, you'll find your way back to where you once found yourself. You just have to learn to pick yourself up. We all have to do that at some point. I can't think of a single moment where I haven't picked myself up. I would say I'm clever at finding ways to pick myself up. You can be clever, too. Just stay in the grooves and don't fall through the cracks. Be extraordinary in how you see fit.
