Dont leave things up to "fate"
I dont believe in fate. To me fate is the fairy tail explanation people give when something happens that they feel was out of their control. In a way i think the belief in fate handicaps people from reaching their true potential. Truth is we are all just victims of random chance as unfortunate as that may be. I believe Ecclesiastes 9:11 puts it best where it simply says in part "...time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all". Now this is not to say I do not believe in God and his purpose set out in the bible, (Matt6:9) but at this time we are not living in Gods kingdom yet and until then this is how things are. However this fact does not necessarily have to be a negative influence though. If more people would own up to the fact that there is no such thing as "fate", i think it would motivate more people to go out and take control of their own lives. Honestly sometimes things don't always pan out the way we would like, but rather than give up and blame it on fate why not keep striving for your goals? I believe we can each make our own fate through perseverance and commitment. I believe fate is what you make it. And if you want to be truly happy in life you cant leave things up to chance, you need to step up and leave NOTHING to chance.
