“Born this way” and “became this way”

Superman was born the way he is. He won the genetic lottery because no one else was born with the abilities he has.

Batman, on the other hand, is totally different. He had to train really hard to become Batman. Even then, he had to be born in the right circumstances since not many of us inherit millions of dollars. But even so, who’s to say we would do something good with so much abundance?

Sometimes you are born with the right stuff to become Superman. Regardless, you can still pick yourself to do the things that others deem impossible.

Yes, the zip code you are born in matters but it doesn’t have to determine your destiny either.
