Hey Lily, I admire your way of thinking!! There are some things we can’t explain, and therefore we can assign the reason of fate to them. And of course, working towards your goal will come from hard work, and fate will also have a little role to play in it!!
Thanks for sharing your opinion!! 🙂

Hahaha!! This supranatural fish got me laughing. I never thought like this. Coz sometimes I believe there is no God (sorry for saying this), or that Nature is the true God – Nature controls everything (for ex – global warming happens, glaciers will melt to give us a warning; we cut forests, wild animals will come out to let humans know they are crossing their limits; mankind was probably moving too fast and destroying things, Covid-19 was introduced to let nature heal itself of the pain caused by humans; and so on). In essence, everything is cause and effect. Everything that happens will be a result of something past, and will be the cause of future reactions (A chain reaction).
Thanks for sharing the wiki article, I will definitely give it a read.
And you’re welcome!! ?

First of all, thank you for appreciating my writing!!
Secondly, yes it’s not possible to know whether fate is real or not. Also, some people will not always fall in one of the two categories – who may or may not believe in fate and may or may not work hard. And yes, I have also felt that lucks turn in our favour when we work harder.
So all in all, I don’t disagree with any of your points. The only thing is – I tend to think about these things and have a hard time finding a closure or be clear about these things. These things can’t be explained. But it’s good to share these things and know people’s perspective.
Thanks for sharing yours!!

Okay, so 2 people have already questioned on my use of word analogy. I checked the dictionary meaning which said “a comparison between two things that shows a way in which they are similar”. But maybe, analogy is not the correct word here.
Coming to the meaning of fate, it means “a predetermined path for an individual”. According to the definition of fate, your future is already decided. So no matter, what you believe, what you will become / achieve in the future, is already decided (like who you’d end up with, what profession you’ll choose, etc.). Some say, your fate is decided (by God) at the time of your birth itself.

Well the last I checked, analogy meant “a comparison between two things that shows a way in which they are similar”. So that’s why I said – whatever your beliefs regarding fate are, ultimately you’ll never know whether it is real of not (irrespective of whether you believe fate is real or not). So, that’s why I’ve used the word analogy here. But if I am thinking wrong, feel free to correct me.
As for luck, luck is different from fate. But I don’t know if I believe in luck either. All I know is, our actions shouldn’t be dependent on luck.

Ok, that’s interesting. But that’s what I said in the end – no matter what the possibility is (whatever your beliefs regarding fate is), in the end, you will achieve what you work for. Suppose you want to become a doctor now, and in the future you become a successful doctor because of your hard work. One day, as a believe of fate, you’ll probably say this to yourself in the future “My fate was to become a Doctor, and that’s why I’ve become a doctor today as I am”. So no matter what you believe regarding fate, you’ll never know whether fate is real or not, and you’ll never know whether you are a doctor because of your fate or it’s because of your hardwork.
(Please don’t misunderstand; I’m not challenging your belief at all)
