Once you have interiorized the fact that most of what happens is beyond your control, there is still value in doing the work, in waking up to change the world, in putting effort into making things better.
Accepting is not the same as giving up. Accepting is understanding that despite our superior qualifications, our impeccable work, our relentless commitment, our strongest will, things might not turn out the way we want. And live with it as we live knowing that the day will follow the night, without letting this simple fact impacting our worth and merit.
This is actually the only way we can ensure we will pursue our purpose no matter what.
