Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?
Destiny is not a passive agent that lies in the lap of the Gods, but is an active instrument that lies in your own hands to shape as you will.
Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.
It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time.
It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny.
Sow a thought and you get an act; Sow an act and you get a habit; Sow a habit and you get a character; Sow a character and you get a destiny.
The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one's destiny to do, and then do it.
You shape your own destiny.
