  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Destiny doesn't stay in the stars, but she lives within our characters IMO. Our characters are governed by our actions, while our actions are driven by our thoughts. So ultimately it's our thoughts that truly control our Destiny. Who we're today, and who we'll become tomorrow is thus purely directed by our thought process. Hence, thinking positively becomes the key to awesome "Now" and amazing "Tomorrow". Destiny is never a matter of chance, but a matter of choice that we make every moment. So, think positively - always!
