they say life is what you make it,some says it's the fate! Do you believe in each? Me? I do believe that it's 50% destiny/ 50% choice, that's why still we are accountable for our every actions and not just because it's written in our hands and it's our fate, You my friend, let me hear what's your point of view. . .

Life is what you make it but how about those wealthy or powerful people that we can see life for them has been made before they were born. They have enough resources, great people they can run to for support, enough cash for capital in business, they have house ready for their shelter and money for their allowances. Are they still living by choice or they are destined to be rich and have everything they wanted. Maybe, their choises will just rely on doing somethings positive to maintain or expand their wealth more or the choice of doing negative things that would lose thier wealth then sit down and say "it's my destiny." So I think Life is what you make it, depending on your choices and whatever outcome you call it destiny...

Well, my point of view is...it won't be 50/50...why? Because when 50/50 happens there will be a chance that it will be turn out not the way it is, for example...you destined to get A in a test and you are well prepared for the test as you really going to score an A but what happen next is one of your family members have been send into the emergency room because of accident(don't be mad, this is just an example), now you are emotional unstable but still the choice is in your hand whether you want to see your family or continue your exam with unstable emotion or think nothing and go for the test. Here, you have 2 out of 3 going to have bad grades in test. My conclusion is many factors come to contact with our life not just destiny and choices we made.

yes i believe its 50/50. I believe everyone has an ultimate fate or destiny for certain situtations. Some one destiny. others many destinies. Along the way we can control certain events that happen in our lives, through our choices, but when it conflicts with fate, I believe fate takes over.

Our choices determines our destiny. What we choose to do determines our future. When we say destiny, it cannot be control thus whatever you do it will be the result. But our choices in life can be controlled, i think its the one that determines our future. Our future is in our hands.

I believe it is all about the choices you make. While you may believe that something out there is directing the flow of your life I think it is the choices that you make that will affect where you go in life. The power of the mind to influence destiny is a very powerful thing. Destiny gives you choices as to which paths are available to you. Only you decide which path to take.
