Efforts OR Fate??? YOU Decide…

       There are some people who before doing something great, see if their stars are alright!! They read their horoscopes before doing something important, and if it says that they should not do it today, they won’t go for it, but if they dont have a choice but to do it, then because of that horoscope, they start getting conscious and even when they have that ability to do it perfectly, they will not achieve that perfectly because of that fear and will just blame their fate. No, its not about your fate, its not about your stars, its about your efforts, its about your confidence, its about your performance, basically its about your karma.

       If you are doing something, then put 100 percent of your efforts and then leave it to the karma. Let your efforts and performance speak for you instead of the destiny and stars you believe in.You need to do whatever you can and then let it be, then whatever happens, that’s that. If it turns out to be good, be proud of yourself and thank yourself and even if not you know your efforts aren’t enough. Atleast you won’t regret that you didn’t do it when you had a chance. 

       According to Bhagwat Gita, the holy book in Hinduism, there is nothing like destiny and we get results on the basis of our earned karma, its all about your determination, hardwork and efforts put by you in the task. Don’t let the fate decide your achievements. Its just you and your efforts which will matter.

       Take charge of your life, be stubborn about your dreams, work for them when you feel it’s the right time and when you achieve your goal, when you reach to your destination, look back and see the beautiful ladder of all your efforts and think of the time when you DIDN’T LET THE FATE DECIDE YOUR FUTURE and feel proud.

Shloka 1:

यथा ह्येकेन चक्रेण न रथस्य गतिर्भवेत् ।

एवं पुरुषकारेण विना दैवं न सिध्यति ।।

English Meaning:
As a cart can’t move with one wheel, similarly, without hard work destiny doesn’t bring fruit.

Shloka 2:

काकतालीयवत्प्राप्तं दृष्ट्वापि निधिमग्रतः ।
न स्वयं दैवमादत्ते पुरुषार्थमपेक्षते ।।

English Meaning:
Even if by sheer luck, a treasure is seen lying in front, destiny doesn’t give it in hand, some effort (of picking it up) is (still) expected. 

Shloka 3: 

उद्योगिनं पुरुषसिंहमुपैति लक्ष्मीः दैवेन देयमिति कापुरुषा वदन्ति | दैवं निहत्य कुरु पौरुषमात्मशक्त्या यत्ने कृते यदि न सिध्यति कोऽत्र दोषः ? 

English Meaning:
Only the one who makes efforts, wins. Cowards depend upon fate. One must throw away the concept of destiny and become industrious, with the confidence and strength of a lion. It’s not one’s fault if he falls in spite of efforts.

  1. Efforts. Always efforts.
    Whatever your religious or cultural background, accepting any controlling hand, be it of a deity, the stars or some undefined influence must carry with it an acceptance that regardless of what you do, ‘what will be will be’. You have no personal responsibility because you have no personal control.
    Except where my choices are restricted by other people’s actions, by the requirement to consider other people’s needs or by natural events, my every decision is mine, and the responsibility for it and its consequences are mine, too.
