Life is an equal opportunity given to all human beings which 'happened' without our choice. There is a saying "You can't choose your father & boss" as they are decided without our consent. Having come to this state called "Life" we can exercise few options- one to drag the life till it is snatched from us or the other to 'Make a difference'.
This 'Fleeting experiences' called life is a collection of mundane indulgence for many at the body consciousness level and die one day like a street dog un-noticed. But for few like Jesus or Sankara it is a major opportunity to redirect the mankind. It is all how we look at it.
