Create Your Destiny

You Can Create Your Future

Some people say that destiny is what happens in your life without your choice. You are walking on the road, and a car knocks you over. The accident is destiny. You have no control or choice in the accident happening.

For all of us, our present is in a way destined.  

The fact that I can write this post means I was destined to be alive at this moment. My present situation is what it is. It is my destiny.

While my Present situation is a matter of destiny, how I consciously choose to respond and act can shape my future. My current actions will have a role in determining my future.

In the present, through my actions, I am planting seeds that will go on to sprout in the future. The seeds could grow to become oak trees or end up as small plants. My actions today are like the seeds. The type of seeds I plant today will decide whether my future is like a small plant or a giant oak.

Through my present actions, I can choose to make my destiny a matter of choice instead of chance.

You are the creator of your destiny.

Swami Vivekanand

Control your own destiny, or someone else will. 

Jack Welch

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every day, ask yourself this “what kind of mindset and attitude am I bringing to whatever I do. Are my actions weak, coming from a survival mindset, or are they strong coming from a clear purpose and a long-term vision?”

Make your present actions count.
