Don't quite agree with Conan. Here's my take on it:
Please do not be cynical. I don't like cynicism, for the record it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly where they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things may happen. I'm telling you, amazing things may happen.
Point is this - not everyone will make their ambitions come true, but only those who try will stand a chance.
