“The best way to create the future is to create it.”
Can we really predict the future?
Self-help gurus always say you can by your actions. They often state that by doing the right thing today, you a have a better tomorrow.
But advice like that is obviously more on an ambitious level than a practical one.
You could be a model driver. You could stay within the speed limit, put on your seatbelt and never run a red light. But a drunk driver could still hit your car.
Even Abraham Lincoln, who said today’s quote, obviously had no way of predicting his assassination.
So what do we do?
In my opinion, you can’t control the outcome. But you can control the probability if you accept that certain things are in your control while others are not.
If you have test coming up, studying hard will put the probability in your favor. It won’t guarantee an A+ but it will guarantee a chance to pass.
If you enter a raffle, you may or may not win. But by entering it, there’s always a chance.
You can’t control the future. But if you do your part, you can certainly increases your chances of being happier.
