do you believe there is a destiny scien you were born? do you think after people died they will have another life? and we are born to be someone,or we are someone we want to be? the future is in our own hands,or no matter how hard we work ,we cannot change the destiny?

if someone told you that there was a gold city at the end of a long maze would you try ? or if someone said that you were destined to get to the gold city would you try? the answer is both , but people choose to think of the second one as the purpose to there challenges , by thinking that you are destined to get somewhere , then you will program your self to get there because of the belief that you are destined to succeed. there is no such thing as destiny , it is something which we create to make ourselves strive to get to impossible places , as well as people who get told that they are destined to get somewhere , and then expect there challenges to be easy , as they feel there destiny will come to them not be worked hard for , destiny is made and created by you , there is no reason for a destiny that is bad , unless you sat and watched it go by , bit like the joke where the man jumped into the water and said god save me , a boat comes , and the drowning man swims away saying , god will save me , a second boat comes , and he swims away , a third , and eventually he drowns , he stands in heaven and says to god , why didn't you save me , and god says , i sent you three boats . you make you destiny , your opportunity's define where you will go , you do the rest

i don't beliefe in some kind of destiny. And i also don't beliefe in an afterlife. It's just some logical deduction i did, but like every logical deduction the outcome will chance when the facts or knowledge chances. you can't be certain about something for 100%, and that certain. :p like Descartes: 'the only thing certain in life is that i can think and wonder.' ;) So like i said: at the moment i like to beliefe we can take our lifes in our own hands and make things happen.

No, I never believe it. i have strong faith in myself. I know there must be something I can do to change my life and to change the world. I must fight for my future.
