“When nothing goes right, go left.”


Meaning: If something is not working out for you, perhaps you should just give up and choose a different direction. What your good at should come naturally. It might be hard work but it should not feel like it's impossible or that there are forces to great to be controlled holding you back, and as this quote states -- if you do feel like nothing can go right with your path; it might make sense to try a new one.
