Yes,I do. I believe that God allotted a path for each of us to follow but it is upon us to chart that path which is what leads us to become what he predestined us to be. This we cannot change.

I do. Everyone has this so called destiny or fate. It is God's way of showing His love upon us, he use this matter to prove that whatever hardship we may encounter, if something is destined to be yours it'll be yours. Coz what ever is happening today, living your life to the will of God a Great FUTURE is destined to be yours.

I don't believe that there is any outside force determining my destiny. However, there are certain things that I'm drawn to and things that feel more rewarding than others. I do prefer to relax and see what life brings me, but it's quite random I'm sure. Humans love to see patterns and we find them if we can.

I believe that we make our own destiny! I think we all obtain something that could make the world better and leave the world better than we found it. I don't think that it just happens. I think we must make the choices to have our destiny become what it is supposed to be. We all have a purpose, but I think it's up to us individually to achieve our purpose in life by the choices we make and the actions we take.

I strongly believe in destiny, since every person on Earth was created with complete uniqueness that must pay back to the society. So I believe if I can impact positively to the society, then I can call that a success and therefore a destiny.

Yes, I believe in destiny up to an extent. I feel the choices given to us in life might be destined, but the path we choose to walk is ultimately out of our own volition. Though sometimes our choice might be affected by circumstances beyond our control, or predestined situations. Eventually, it becomes a tug-of-war between what we want to do and what we might feel compelled to do at a particular moment in life.

I do believe in destiny and in our ability to influence it. What you think, you become. The law of attraction is so strong that you can never really escape what the universe has destined for you to become, it's just up to you to discover what it is.

Yes, I believe in destiny. Every man on earth has a specific purpose to fulfil in live. So also we do have some inevitable situations to undergo at some stages in live.

Personally, I believe we make our own destiny. We have free will, so I think we are in charge of what happens to us!

I am not sure, though someone will have to explain destiny to me. I keep hearing this word used in different contexts, maybe we need to define what destiny is.

Latest Review: "Raven's Peak" by Lincoln Cole

Yes, in some instances but not all the time. Not everything is done as it is. I believe that you're the one who makes your own destiny. Nobody can dictate you on what to do. You have your own free will to choose how to live your life. You maybe influenced by others, but the decision is done by you alone. Destiny is a great thought but not all things happens by itself. You're the one who is still in control. You achieve things through your hardwork and believing in yourself.
Because if you've found meaning in your life, you don't want to go back. You want to go forward.
