There are always outside influences that you feel you simply cannot control. It is how one reacts to these circumstances that determine the final outcome. It is these choices that determine our success or failure. Everything happens for a reason. Seemingly on a physical level, we don't seem to be able to control our reality, however on some subconscious level, we choose to participate in every single event that comes our way. We may not be aware of it, but that is how the universe works.

It's called free will, and it plays a part in every facet of our lives. You simply can't have free will only in certain areas of your life. If we have free will to choose our professions and a mate, then we also have free will as to when we are born, who our parents are, and when we die. Free Will is an absolute truth! It doesn't come and go with the wind.
