Life is rather big enough for ones character, but family will always help you out. When family is not around we can ask help from God. Others would just like to ask help from the universe.
Think how a lowly farmer who tenders his produce or vegetables out of nothing but hope of selling if for money that the family needs. There is no certainty that natural disasters will not destroy the farm, that someone will be willing to take it for the market to sell, or that it will take an expensive price. The farmer have all the belief and courage to take what is ahead and take care of his vegetables today. All he have now is make them big and juicy for the harvest season.
