Luck and Fate.

By Oxford Dictionary's definition, Luck is success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own action. Fate, on the other hand, is the development of events outside a person's control regarded as predetermined by a supernatural power.

I do not one hundred percent agree with these definitions. Let me explain what Luck and Fate are to me. Luck; it is not success or failure by chances, but Luck is rather realising opportunities, seeing them, differentiating between chances you have and chances you do not. Let me give you an example. You read about an available job in the newspaper. Now, Luck here would not be that you were reading the newspaper, but it would be whether you take the job as an opportunity to make something of yourself or rather take the job as just another open position. In another example, at school auditions are open for a play. Luck is you realising it as an opportunity to get extra credits, and it's Unlucky of you if you ignore it, without even considering it. This is how luck is defined; realization of opportunities.

Some once said,
" There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it. "
Fate in my opinion is basically the outcome of the hard work, dedication, effort , and concentration invested into the opportunities given by Luck. Yes, Lord is in control of all, but that does not change the fact that Lord's plan can be changed by placing dedication in praying to him to pay off your hard work. That too is investing into the opportunities Luck has provided you.

Luck and Fate; both, are in our command, are in our control. We are more in control of our lives than we think we are. Luck and Fate rely upon our choices and our perseverance. How we act is exactly what we get. Luck and Fate are our own, With just slightest of efforts, we become the ruler of our world and its consequences.
