"I am not chosen; I chose myself. Kal-El was not born Superman, he chose to be Superman." The meaning behind my quote is simple and true: We are born into our own situations and circumstances, be those good, bad, or in-between, it has no bearing on our successes or failures. It is what we choose to do with our lives that will determine who we are and/or will become.
For example, albeit a fictional character, Superman did not have to be the protector of Earth. He could have easily chosen to use his powers for evil, but this lifestyle wasn't one he wanted for himself. Knowing what he truly wanted, he CHOSE to be the protector of Earth. So, simply stated we can all choose to be whomever we want and I CHOOSE to be an artist that shares his love for music with the world!
