Do we make our own destiny, or it was already planned?

They said that God has already planned our destiny, from the moment of our conception, until death. It's was already written in the palm of His hand. While others said that we're the one who make our destiny as the famous poem Invictus says "I'm the master of my fate, I'm the captain of my soul." What do you think,which one would you believe?

Sometimes I think that people that blame destiny for bad things that happen to them maybe are depressed or frustrated and don't want to take responsibility upon themselves. I agree, there are situations that are out of our reach, a lot of things are, but why should we (myself) worry about it? If something good or bad happens, it just happened, that's it. Could I've done something to prevent it? Maybe Was I destined to be a failure or be successful? I don't know, but I know what I can do to have good things happen to me regardless of whatever it is I can't change. It is a very trivial issue, but I choose to live life on the present and not on the "could've, should've, would've"

Those people who blame destiny for whatever misfortune they encounter were people who can't accept the truth, and yeah, they don't want to take responsibility of their actions. There are things that meant and destined to be happened, like when you lose your job because your company was bankrupt. In that situation there's nothing you can do about it. But if you lose your job because you're caught sleeping or drunk then it was your fault and you make it to happened. So I think destiny were half made by human and God. Yeah, you're right we should live the present because it's a gift to us and it's the only time where we can make our destiny. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and have a great day!

What I heard is, there are two types of destiny. One cannot be changed and it goes as God has decided. The other destiny survives under this and can change as per the man's efforts and faith in God. The second destiny provides freedom to choose the way of life and goals and ambitions for one's own self.
