I would like to believe that I can accomplish anything, that I control my own destiny wholeheartedly, that in some way the fate of my life is in my hands. While thinking this though, a small part of my conscious banters to itself, what if something else is controlling your fate? What if your life has already been planned out and you just have to follow the cue cards of life? So therefore I am uncertain if I have full control of my life, or none at all.
Do you feel your fate is already predetermined by your lineage — your parents and ancestors? Or do you feel you are in the driver’s seat in determining your own success?
I believe that my families lineage plays a role in my fate, the fact that both my grandparents were and are well off allowed my parents to have better portions of life, for example a good place to live and a college education. Therefore since my parents were able to afford a education I believe it set them up for a better life, which in turn may perhaps set me up with the necessities to follow in their footsteps and have a successful life too.
Do you think you will be better or worse off than your parents? In what ways? Why?
I believe I will be worse off then my parents for a time, because of the fact of how much the world has changed in the job market since then. My dad and mom grew up with competitive attitudes which in turn made them ambitious people, while I on the other hand feel no pressure to figure out what I want to do on life which will surely be a problem later on.
