Do you Believe in Destiny?

Makpal is the President of the Sports Dance Federation of the Republic of Kazakhstan:

I believe in sincere desires. If a person really wants something, the Universe will contribute to the fulfillment of this dream or, perhaps, the goal. We all have only one purpose – to be happy. Every minute of our lives we choose where to go. Perhaps there is destiny or fate, but hard work, love, faith, honesty, kindness, intelligence and talent have enough strength to change the course of events for the better. Highly intellectual and spiritually developed people don’t use the expression “it is destined” in their vocabulary. To me, this is a sign of disrespect, first of all, to yourself. “For the world is like a mirror, and everyone sees in it only their own reflection.”
