This is what I believe in (kind of), determinism. Something like cause and effect. An event which lead to another and so on. It is possible to determine some ones future with this method of thinking. Course, obvious ones are if you want to be animator - you get into an animation program - you get a job as a animator - ???? - PROFIT!!
Basically you can't escape your "fate" if you wanna call it that because an event in the past WILL lead to "this" event. Theres more to it but I forgot. I think this is call hard determinism. Theres another one called soft determinism? Something like determinism light.
