I believe in handwork, intellectual approach, smart work and manipulating the process to be on your side. Some call this destiny. Sometimes clearly articulated moves do fail. Please understand.

I dislike the negative association of destiny (can someone really be destined to get cancer or something like that) but I would embrace the destiny of a lottery winner or best writer of the century in heartbeat.

I used to believe in free will and our power to change our lives through determination and hard work, but life proved me wrong. I do believe in destiny now because of the completely unexpected things that happened to me without no warning whatsoever. I still believe in myself. The difference now is that I also believe sometimes we just can't change things and we have to accept this.

I have experienced destiny all of my life. So, I think my answer is yes. :tiphat:

Yes I believe in destiny perhaps not in terms of success but that every person we meet impacts our lives in one way or another. That to me is destiny.
No idea is a bad idea.
