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.

It's the journey, not the destination. Follow his advice and you'll have an amazing journey, even if you end up on the other side of the world from the destination you had in mind.

Amazing things will happen. They just may not be the amazing things you expected would happen.
