The Will or Destiny

"The will of men who are put to the test can often supercede the will of destiny." Tristan Bernard

During the time of Napoleon, a great French general names La Varieremade made the decision to attack, even though his troops were largely out numbered. He was certain of victory, but he felt his men's fear and wanted to do something to cut short their protestations.

On a country road he stopped before an isolated chapel and declared, "I am going inside and I will ask for God's help. Then I will come out and flip this gold coin. If our Emperor's face appears we will win. If the other side comes up heads, then we will lose. And so, my companions, our fate is in the hands of destiny." After a few moments in the chapel, La Variere came out and flipped the coin. Napoleon's head appeared. The soldiers shouted and acclaimed their destiny, and the entire company's moral was lifted.

Convinced that they would be victorious, they fought with such bravery that they rapidly won the battle. After the victory Vermont, one of La Variere's adjutants, said, "Oh Sir, noone can change the course of Destiny. This unexpected victory is yet another proof of that." "Who knows, my dear Vermont, who knows," replied the General, and he showed him the coin on which Napoleon's head appeared... on both sides!

"Destiny is stronger than the will of man." We have often heard that said, especially by those who renounce life, who prefer to walk with their heads bowed and their backs curved, because it's easier to do so than to confront events. Hazard does exist, as do all the problems that plague men. That's a fact. But one should not seek to impose any intention on these things, as if there were a curse on humanity or some transcending evil. Intelligence, an entrepreneurial spirit, courage and yes, even trickery,can affect the order of things. And why even assume that there is apre-established order?

Today is your day! Your time is right now, flip that coin and make it happen!

"It's remarkable, how much mediocrity we live with, surrounding ourselves with daily reminders that the average is acceptable. Our world suffers from terminal normality. Take a moment to access all the things around you that encourage you to remain "average". These are the things that keep you powerless, unable to go beyond a limit you have arbitrarily set for yourself."
