Hello! Do you believe in this quote, "Life is what we make it" or you believe your life is what others make it or belive in luck and all? I believe in the quote that life is what we make it. Many say life is what people around us make it and I also used to think the same. But now I have learnt that life is what we make it. Whatever the people around us do, it depends on us how we take it and how we live our life. About luck...it may sometimes be true. But I believe if we work hard for our goal, we can meet it through our hard work and wishes of elders. vani^_^

I believe in that quote. Hannah Montana also sang a song about it. You hold the key to your success or failure in life

I don't believe in that quote. From the way I was raised, I believe that our life is planned out from a higher power. I'm not against others thinking differently. I do know that there are obstacles that we have to find our way around, but we have no control of those obstacles being there to begin with. Some things we have control of but sometimes our hands are tied. This is part of why I don't believe life is what we make it. My quote would be "we're dealt a life so we may as well try to make the best of it".

Yes, we don't have control on obstacles, but we can control ourselves and fight against it and make our life as we want it to be. Thanks for responding!

I can't agree more, "life is what we make it,try to make it beautiful",This is a quote that I have learnt in my high school,At that time there is a big exam in all my life that is my college entrance exam,in those hard days I often use this quote to inspire myself,it give me strength,courage,thanks to this quote. We can't say there is no luck,however,where is this luck based on?that based on ourselves,just as the saying in my country"the luck only give those who well prepared for it". remember"the god only help those who can help themselves",come on!;-)

I used to think that everything around us dictated what kind of life we had, but not anymore. I realized one day that the only person responsible for the life I live is me. So, I decided to live my best life possible. I always tell people that in order to change your life, you MUST become an active participant in your life. You cannot just sit on the sidelines watching your life pass you by. If you do not take an active role in your own life, you have no right to complain about what is going on in your life. I choose to live my best life possible right now. I choose to count my blessings and be happy with what I do have in my life right now. The biggest problem, in my opinion, is that people do not realize that if they are not happy with what they already have in their lives, they will never be happy with what they think they want in their lives. It is my belief that people are so involved with trying to get what they think they want, that they cannot see what they already have. We make ourselves miserable and blame society. The only person we can blame is ourselves. It's a choice. We can choose to be happy with our lives, we can choose to live our best lives possible or we can choose to always lament what we think we do not have. I choose to be happy with my life and I choose to live the best life I possibly can.

Hi Indiavani, and yes, i definitely believe that life is what we make out of it. For 1stthing we have to take responsability for absolutely everything we did, we do now, or will do in thefuture. As 2nd thing, we have to watch and see how we react to circumstances and people's reactions toward us, as there is a major point in there too And as a last one, circumstances or not, we have to work SMARTER and NOT HARDER, in order to achieve our goals, and wishes, and forget about everything else, than these 3 points just mentioned. Believing in your intuition will help greatly to achieve the 3rd point, and listening to it, as well as to your hart. as Intuition + Felling makes us so much more wise, and masters in the game of life :)

Exactly,i fully agree with you.I dont think our life is influenced by people around us.We are living in age where choices are manifold and there is no dearth for oppurtinities for the talented.we can use our opputinities to the fullest to accomplish something worthy.When we do something we like it will free us in mind and spirit. Life is what we make it.yes!!!

Yes, life is what we make of it. There is a school of thought who says that external factor which include people around us, determine our future or destination. Only those with no self-belief believe in it and let other people decide for them. My philosophy is that I am in charge of my own destination and nobody is going to decide for me. Seize the day!

Yeah I pretty believe in that what you write.Life is waht we make.But laso I believe in luck , some people has it some don't.But also it is about hard work, if you are dreaming about something I think you can reach it, just cannot fed up easy and need to work on yourself hard as you can.

I believe the phrase goes even further than hard work and such. Example. A young lady gets pregnant and decides to keep the baby. The father backs out of the picture, yet the young lady still goes on to have the baby. Now the young lady has made her choice and is deciding the course of her life. So her life is what she makes of it. And from there she has choices, such as to live off of welfare, or to get a job and raise her child. Life is what we make of it...I have 4 kids, 2 with severe mental problems, and twins that are just about enough to drive me crazy. I have a good husband that works alot of hours so that I can stay home and take care of the kids. Our life is what we made of it. I do believe that there are people that look at that phrase and say that they didn't ask for the life they have now and wish it was a better life. These are the kind of people that expect someone else to improve their lives instead of making their own lives better. Sure there are certain times when this phrase isn't true. Such as the disabled that are truly dependent on someone else. Unless they caused the disability themselves. Even then, some of the disabled still find joy and happiness, and take it as it is and their life is what they make of it. In essence, every decision we make is directing the course our lives take. We are in control of that, so yes the phrase is very true.
