How often we say let it be decided by fate, one also has to take some control of one's destiny


Is it a good this to sit doing and anxiously wait
Believing that all that happen to us was due to fate
This in itself may be creating a very serious problem
By sticking fast to a belief enshrouded in fatalism.

Imagine feeling in the body that nagging niggling
And over a period of time, it seemed to be intensifying
Then one day the system came under a concerned attack
Couldn’t this have been rectified by responding to that first rap?

Its only many of us get concerned about our health
When we are not feeling like our old self
Concerned about diet, and willing to take any form of exercise
When that blood test, indicates that our cholesterol shows a rise.

How often does one see any business or corporation?
Willing concede the market share to any of its competition
But will launch any campaign, this is being proactive
This will ensure that the company’s future will live

Many people may at sometime, face retirement
Some may not find this a period for any form of enjoyment
Others may be excited at they are very willing to explore newer horizons
Because they have made plans, and can readily adjust to the situation.

Remember there is no way you can get the mountain top
By staying at the foot, being contented to make there your stop
Take control of your future, don’t stay put saying it’s your destiny
This will show that you have surrendered to fatalism totally and completely.


Control, Destiny, Effort, Fate, Planning, Proactive
