This is the pet argument advanced by those who are basically weak and infirm in mind or body and who have little or no confidence in their ability to come to grips with the problems they may be faced with at any given point of time. Secondly, let me state that chances, opportunities, etc. do not come on a platter- one has to realise its presence when it is some distance away and lunge forward and seize it by its forelock and make the most of it. God has given equal amount of intelligence to every one on Earth. Success is merely due to the fact that some one makes use of his God given gift and moves forward in life, whereas others adopt a fatalistic posture and wait for the opportune moment to start their venture. To the wiloling, evry single moment is opportune, to the fatalistic, no moment seems opportune enough to make use of the faculties which the Almighty has been kind enough to bestow on him.

Fate etc.should not become excuses for inactivity because it will kill the initiative in a person to achieve.

First discharge your duties honestly and with a single-minded devotion ! Thereafterwards you may
trust fate, luck and destiny ! Inspite of our best efforts we must have providence, too ! This is my
personal belief !
