Man and destiny
Dhriti | 28 Apr 2011
Let any amount of trials and turbulence not deters us from achieving success for which we have tries so hard. As Tennyson said 'To strive, to seek, to find but not to yield is the guiding principle of our life'.
GOD CREATED man who was destined to be called as the most intelligent and superior form of life ever to be created on this earth. Thus, man became the master of his own destiny through his determination and skills.
Well, the above statements may sound to be absolutely contradictory to each other but it certainly puts everybody in a fix, forces us to ponder over this controversial heat generating subject whether there is something known as destiny or is it just means cool answer to his burning eagerness to know as to why he failed.
It has often been observed that people believing in ‘destiny’, ‘luck’, and ‘fortune’, whatever you say often tend to be more pessimists once they lose the battle.
They don’t attempt to win the fray again, as they believe that everything in this world is preordained and no amount of human effort can affect any change. They don’t believe in the principle that, failures are stepping stones to success. But a person of strong will power, formidable character, is not deterred by such failures, and continues struggling to achieve his goal.
Sometimes it so happens that even after using our fullest potential we are unable to achieve our destination for it seems that our efforts have betrayed us.
But there is no point in giving up perseverance of endeavours to achieve our goal. Who doesn’t know the famous story of the king Bruce and the spider? The king got the inspiration from the spider and ultimately attained what he aimed for. Let any amount of trials and turbulence not deters us from achieving success for which we have tries so hard.
As Tennyson said “To strive, to seek, to find but not to yield is the guiding principle of our life”.
