Is it possible to have the life that we want?

Are we pawns in the game of life? Do we have the power to live the life that we want? Are we victims of our circumstances? These are questions that I think many are asking or forgetting to ask when it is necessary to do so. It would be good to have control over our lives.

We can never really know our future, anyone can tell you that. But I have this feeling that we can predict our future to an extent. For instance, if I do nothing then I will not earn anything, this is almost certain. If I do a number of posts everyday then I can foresee a future where I will reach $10 if it is a legit site.

In my opinion . God doesn't decide your life . You decide yours , and control it by your own way .

You're absolutely right, God has given us free will and we should use that in order to improve our lives.

I believe that we can have the life we want, but we have to work for it, things will get in our way, but we have to face them head on and win and get on with our life.

I think you're absolutely right. There may be difficulties along the way but if we keep on going then we will surely get what we want in life. Thanks.

Hi underdogtoo, We are not pawns in the game of life, and we do have the power to live the life we want. Beliving that this is true is a very good start, Unless you believe this you will never get far in life. With determination you can go far, most people do not realize this until late in life. Blessings.

You have made a very wise observation. It is a wonderful thing to be so clear in how one perceives life and the world in general. Many times we find ourselves lost in the cloud of fear and doubt and it is by experience that we sometimes find that there is a silver lining behind every dark cloud.

well its just the balance of nature, if you always live in a fruitful life then how can you appreciate things in your life.. you can still live in the life that you want as long your willing to do everything just to reach your dream. being happy and contend is the key to fruitful life..

Nature likes balance and I like balance too. I also like dreams. They make us strive to be better than we are. I like life and it is a wonderful thing to be alive even when there are bumps in the road. There is always hope to keep us going in those rough times.

I don't believe in desteny or that we are pawns in the game of life. We do have the power to live the life we choose. I don't think that it is always the easiest thing to do but I think we can change. What we have to do is make our minds up one hundred percent that we want the change and than proceed to do what it takes to make it happen.

That is as positive as they can make it. I think a positive outlook is a good way to predict our future but I do believe that there are forces which work to hinder us or to propel us further. Call it destiny, call it something else, I believe there are other forces at work but the main thing is our outlook and how we go about living our lives.
