Things do not happen. Things are made to happen. John F. Kennedy
This was a key phrases from an address he gave at the University of North Dakota in September 1963. It is often used as a motivational phrase, and can be found on any number of web sites if you Google it. Viewed from the perspective of a motivational sound bite, this makes perfect sense. I’ve paraphrased this before in previous blogs as “success doesn’t come looking for you, you go looking for it”.
