Do you believe that a higher power controls our fate or that we choose our own destinies?
I think that to a certain extent, we do have predestined fates. Not in a religious way, or controlled by any higher powers. But, I think peoples' lives are definitely influenced by circumstance.
For example, somebody born into a impoverished family in the third world is definitely less likely to have certain opportunities (like being able to have an advanced university education) than somebody born with a silver spoon to a rich, upper-class family in the first world.
At the same time, however, I think that our choices can definitely make our destinies. Choices, like to work hard or to take opportunities can definitely change lives. Meanwhile, choosing to do drugs or ignore responsibility can ruin lives and plans.
In the end choices can overrule circumstance, and, in that way, we control our own fates.
