I believe In Destiny, if it means there is a way that a person's life was designed to be for an ultimate purpose. I believe there needs to be cooperation of the individual involved for that Destiny to be lived out. In other words, I believe people can choose to live out the good plan that was drafted for their lives or not to. The truth is that God created us all for a good destiny and to stand completely in His desires for us we need to trust Him, if not the devil also has his perverted destiny for all mind kind which is to set them off their original course and destroy them. So yes I believe In Destiny, but not in the sense that everything would happen how it was made to happen no matter what. We can choose to line up with God and live his plan. Whether we choose to do this is not His ultimate plans will not be thwarted, but our own individual destinies might not be as desirable as they were made to be.

I don't believe in destiny in the sense that it is preordained, but I believe that a person could be destined for great things. If all the ingredients are there (work-ethic, personality, creativity, etc.), then I could see where that set of traits would make a person more likely to do "great things" in a particular field.

I agree with the comments that say God is the author of our destiny. Yes, and we are also what we make of it.

I don't. I believe one can chart his own path and it not a good thing to always accept things as they are. I also believe in God's mercy to change things in one's life.

I believe in destiny. But I also believe in the ability to choose. We could very much make our own destiny.

I don't really believe in destiny or fate but it's nice to imagine they exist (in light of soulmates and all that corny romantic jazz). I hate the notion that "this is my fate" because it implies that humans don't actually have free will if everything is alreay predetermined by a superior being.

Yes. I believe that we have the choice to go to road A or B but the destiny of road A or B is determined beforehand. Maybe also all roads lead to the same destination with some variation.

I believe that we can choose our own destiny. I think life can be defined as 90% of free will and 10% of fate.

On my part I believe in destiny. Our destiny is determined by who we associate with, the choices we make and sometimes sheer luck.
In other times we have a date with destiny when we are consistent with what we are doing.
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
Benjamin Franklin
