If I can't do what I want then I'm leaving
If anything ever went wrong Sid would not know about it, he was very protected and his father did not want him to be exposed to anything bad in the world. He would not see the sick, the homeless, the poor, and the old.
You can have what you want
Sid escapes the castle without guards and sees all the bad in the world. He is curious and asks his servant about what he is seeing. He says that life is about suffering and everyone dies eventually.
This is how you can become enlightened
Sid leaves his family and goes into the forest. He shaves off all his hair and wears cheap clothes. Sid meets ascetics and becomes one of them but ultimately ends up going solo.
Sid finds a tree and meditates for 49 days and has conversations with a god named Mara. Mara told him he could have pleasure if he stopped meditating but Sid keeps on going. After all this meditating Sid becomes Buddha. Buddha now travels and shares with people about truth.
Sid decided to awaken the world by traveling and sharing about truth and the path to enlightenment. He shares how to be a good person and about the four noble truths.
