You are born to your parents and thus you are part of the family which is quite a great thing. From the moment you born into this world, you have an address, people will recognize you as Son/ daughter/ brother /sister and live your life. And you inherit whatever the ‘name and fame’ your parents and the family have earned in their life so far.
But here, knowingly or unknowingly, you also inherit some family values and traditions of the family where you are born. Like, if you are born to parents who are well educated, cultured and rich and respected by the local community, then you are considered to be very lucky that you are born in a well to do family your future is going to be bright.
On the other hand, if you are born to parents who are not educated, uncultured, financially poor and has earned a bad name for the family, whether you like it or not, you also become part of the negativity of that family and their family traditions.
Now, as you grow, the first few years of your life, you learn from your family members and from outside your family. Later you start living on your own, based on what you had seen, heard, and learnt till then from your family and the families and other people around you during the rest of your life. Thus, by birth, you have no option, but to accept, whatever the ‘Creator’ have decided for you, ‘good or bad destiny’.
Thus you must be very lucky to have born to parents with a good family background/heritage, which will provide you a very good base to begin your life.
