Do you belive in Fate?


Fate is some sort of excuse for me. Something is not supposed to happen. It was out of my control. I did everything I could but the end result was decided by other people.

“My fate cannot be mastered; it can only be collaborated with and thereby, to some extent, directed. Nor am I the captain of my soul; I am only its noisiest passenger.” Aldous Huxley

There are things I can fight for and work hard for but there are also things in life which seems so finite and set. For example, not getting accepted to your favorite university or dream job seems like the end of the world. You had a chance and now it is decided against your will. What’s next? You need a plan B. Fate decided and now it’s your turn to react and not lose hope.

“Just because Fate doesn’t deal you the right cards, it doesn’t mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential.”

Les Brown

It’s difficult to accept defeat and setbacks. But maybe it was fate? Maybe you weren’t suppose to go that university and you will realize that another university might be much better for you in the end. It’s your chance to learn more about yourself from this setback and orientate yourself again.

“You wait for fate to bring about the changes in life which you should be bringing about by yourself.” Douglas Coupland

Everything happens for a reason and usually we have to go through many hard times before reaching our goal. It’s never a smooth path to your goal. That would be too easy and who said life is easy?

  1. I think, there are many reasons, why something is going “right”, maching with our plans or disappointing them, but I don’t believe in a certain individuall fate coming from elsewhere than the developping circumstances we live together with our thoughts and our surroundings depending on their own conditions, and everyrthing is in progress, so – I agree – there is always looking and dealing with a plan B, like a river doesn’t stop running because of some stone dropped in.
