Today it has become so natural for us to blame our mistakes and failures, ill health, unfavourable circumstances and conditions, our unhappiness and our disappointments in all the walks of life on “fate!” How prone we are to attribute our ills and failures to some external factor or cause, when the real cause lies within ourselves!
This is simply because we have become so used to thinking that the causes which control and shape our lives are external and such as can be measured by the physical senses. We have become so used to considering everything from a material standpoint—perceiving only that which can be weighed in the balance of human intelligence or measured with scales and metre rule that we have actually grown into the belief that the things which govern our lives and control our destiny are external.
We have been conditioned to live a material life, and have become grossly in materialism, that we have lost sight almost entirely of the higher, spiritual and more potential forces by and through which our lives and our destinies are controlled.
In this new year, too many people still believe in fate and horoscopes. They believe that what will be, will be and they don’t have control over how the year will turn out to be. Folks from my standpoint, there is no such thing as “fate” and nothing ever “happens.” Scientists, psychologists, and even the Bible show that to a greater extent, the cause of whatever comes to any person lies within the person.

Oh how we waste golden moments daily, and yet we claim we don’t have enough time to pursue our dreams. Most of us are familiar with the phrase; if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I hear it used every time, in fact it is shared as tweets and posts on facebook too even by those whose life is going nowhere.

As for you, be well advised and make sure you fill your life with a definite purpose. Know where you are going and what you wish to accomplish and what means you intend to go about accomplishing that purpose. Make use of the valuable moments that the majority of the unthinking people in our world are throwing away.
Realize how well spent minutes multiply into hours of productive efforts. You have all the time there is, and now is the best time to do the best that is in you.
As a young boy in primary school, I was always asked by teachers in the various classes I progressed into, and by other adults (relatives or family friends) what I will like to be when I grow up. Then I would give them answers of things I fancied back then based on the books I read, or the people I regarded as my heroes….(every child wants be like the adults they loved. So please be good examples to kids)
Right now as an adult, I still hear people tell me what they will like to be, or aiming at becoming; you want to become a writer, actor, actress, speaker, preacher, Entrepreneur, and so on. While we have figured out what we want to be, many of us haven’t figured out what we have to do in order to be those things we desire.
