The Right to Sweat (0:13)
Every single day we struggle to figure it out, effort to get it right, scrutinize the next step, analyze our next move, and risk everything to create something great from an idea or vision that’s stubbornly lodged between our ears. The process itself is mentally confronting, emotionally frustrating, and physically exhausting. However it’s from the sweat of that exhaustion that our destiny is forged. Artists & treps are very aware of this, and still they forge ahead, though it’s often difficult for others to understand.
“Every man gotta right to forge his own destiny.” —Bob Marley

Great article, but for the sake of Clarity and Authenticity, Bob Marley said "Every Man Got A Right To Decide His Own Destiny". I'm not sure why the quote was changed, but I know for a FACT that the word "Forge" isn't used in his song. Take a look at the song "Zimbabwe", and you'll see for yourself. One Love

I love Bob Marley. Those creative people who rise above the crowd to do something better, something unique, something that makes a difference in peopleís lives are so courageous. And I think each of us does forge his/her own destiny by what we do and what we donít do. And JMD, it is exhausting physically and mentally, youíre right, but better to sweat ourselves into our destiny than to ride passively into it. Very wise!

At the end of the year, we look back at 2014 and try to figure out how it relates to our destiny. If we were sick, we wonder if our destiny is wellness or sickness. If we consider ourselves a failure or success, we ask ourselves, is this our destiny for 2015? The Truth is, I agree, we will make our own 2015 destiny what it is by how we respond to 2014. It is a NEW year, a NEW day, and we gotta right to forge it ourselves!
