Found in a situation

The Personal 2012 – In a conversation with Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, a college student mentioned he was not able to be more active with helping others; he could only focus on his personal studies. He tried to explain to the Rebbe, “I find myself in this situation…”

The Rebbe told him, “Nobody finds themselves in a situation; you put yourself in that situation and you can put yourself in another situation.” (from “the creed oh Noah” blog/rss feed)
