Self Made man

Bobbie Carlyle's 'Self-made man', a statue I greatly admire and a principle I strongly believe in.

Bobbie Carlyle's 'Self-made man'

If you look at the above picture, you will see a man carving himself from a stone. As I said in real life too, I believe the same. What we are is what we carve for ourselves with our body, mind and soul. At the end of the day, we are 'only' responsible for our actions and we are answerable to ones own self.

And when we are able to answer all the questions truly for ones self, I think that's is the first step to success and success for mankind.

To brief:

"...left to his own devices, man will use his God-given talents to be creative, productive, and prosperous. Using free will, he will better his own situation and that of those around him, thereby influencing in a positive way his own destiny..." *

* I picked this paragraph from some where on the web

It is just a stone to which we raise our hands and pray and it is also a stone on which we step, but the difference between these two is that the first stone took a lot of hits,pain, shed off its unwanted part, left with the best of itself...the same reflects for us too...decide if you want to be an idol to which people pray or just a stone on which they step on...
