What is Destiny?
Is it something that’s written in your fate? Will an astrologer tell you what it is? Is it what you were born with? Is it what is expected of you? Is it what you work your ass off to achieve? Is it your dream? What is it?
-noun, plural destinies.
Something that is to happen or has happened to a particular person or thing; lot or fortune.
According to me, destiny is something that was written in your fate, but it is only up to YOU to achieve it. No other super forces are going to magically gift you your dream. Of course, you might be naturally gifted with something. A talent, an ability, an affinity towards anything. But to be an expert, to be the master of your trade, to do something spectacular with it, you need practice, dedication, determination and the will to get that dream in your hands. No one but you can do what you want, especially the way you want it.
We use the phrase ‘destined to do it’ so frequently, that we might have actually forgotten how to achieve it. Destiny isn’t magic, destiny isn’t a gift from the dreamland. And sure, life might be a story but it sure as hell isn’t a movie. Special effects don’t happen. All these super-successful-hard working-giant industrialists/superstars/fantastic people didn’t get to that level in a day. They weren’t gifted success on a silver platter. They worked, worked and worked. And then worked some more. They didn’t get to the ‘elite group’ without failing. They’ve failed way more than we know, but what did they do? They DIDN’T GIVE UP.
There are so many factors that contribute to success and dreams. But mostly, it’s hard-work. There’ll be people who say smart work gets you to the good places. I agree, probably it does. But it’ll never get you to the best ones.
To achieve your dreams, to fulfill your destiny is to be successful in whatever the hell was your dream. Don’t slack. NEVER think ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’. The only thing that you achieve by postponing things and by being lazy is: NOTHING.
When you start working towards your dream, the society will throw rocks at you, and it WILL hurt. But stay strong. Collect all those rocks and pile’em up until you have a mountain. And then? You wouldn’t even need to throw the mountain. It’ll be so huge, that it’ll be standing in the backyard of your house while you sip imported coffee and sign huge deals. Or maybe sing songs, or play games. ANYTHING. You will be happy, and they will be crying.
Destiny is something that you write, and unless you finish writing that chapter of you life story, you will not have finished your book. So work hard, keep faith and know that there will always be people who support you. Even if you don’t know them yet, they exist. So stop dreaming about it, start doing.
And even if you don’t, and I say this A LOT..Even if you don’t, I have faith in you.*hugs you virtually*
That is Destiny, in my opinion. Tell me what you think Destiny is.
