if the mountain wont come to Mohammed, Mohammud must go to the mountian

if the mountain wont come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to the mountain is an ancient proverb which is relating to the fact that if you cant get your own way, you must accept that it is inevitable. It can also be portrayed to mean that things dont always happen for you, and sometimes you must get up, put in the work and make things happen yourself. You may not be able to have the mountain come to you, but you can make the effort to go to the mountain.
