isnt it ridiculous to curse our own destiny for the failures?there are many personswho regardless of their weaknesses,changed their destiny.the son of a carpenter made it to the white house[lincoln].a textile retailer made topped the list of forbes richest people[ambani].so why do we take hostage under DESTINY ?come out with our own potentials and conquer the world.....

Hi, In fact, I don't believe in destiny, because then I feel that my choices aren't really my choices...Do you know why do lots of ppl believe in destiny? It's because of fear... Fear of responsibility. As humans, we tend to pass blame and in some cases we have no one or nothing. So, people say it's destiny or something greater, something unseen to explain what happens. Some people need to believe that there is something guiding their actions....then it's easier to accept failure when one fails to succeed. And they beleive in destiny because it gives them something to look forward to. In the end, everything is a matter or faith. But, if we want to be mature fully actualized human beings, we should start taking responsibility for our actions. That means that there is cause and effect in this world. What we do affects the outcome of the events around us. Well...after all, I say to myself, life is an amazing journey....isn't it?? Good Luck :)
