"Chance favors those in motion" - James Austin

I want to do a lot of things. I want to live on my own. I want to decide and control how my life would go. I just want to experience being free for once and break free from these shackles.

I love this excerpt I got from the web. I think its also form James Austin.

You have to be going somewhere to get somewhere. Success requires action. If you sit on the sidelines and watch, you won’t accomplish anything. Put your thoughts in motion, and success will follow.
The lesson for everyone is that you will have opportunities in life but you have to prepare yourself for them. You have to go to school, you have to learn, and you have got to train your mind. A lot of life is good fortune; a lot of life is being at the right place at the right time, but you not only have to be in the right place at the right time but you have to be ready to accept a challenge. And so chance, or fortune, being fortunate or lucky means that those who have trained themselves and are ready for the opportunity.
Do not just dig yourself into a hole and stay there. There’s a big world out there and you’ve got to keep your mind moving and you’ve got to get interested in things and get involved in things and in the community. Know what’s going on in the big wide world out there. Fortune and opportunity will come to those who not only have the trained mind and studied hard and worked hard, but to those who are willing to take risks and go out and venture into the unknown.
