  Do you ever hear people say “que sera sera,” meaning “what will be, will be”? It’s a common saying, but is it true? Let’s think about it. Sure, sometimes things happen that we can’t control. Like the weather or what other people do. But when it comes to your own life, it’s not as simple as just waiting to see what happens. You see, what will be will only be if you make it be. That means you have the power to shape your future. You can’t just sit back and hope for things to work out. You have to take action.

Think about it like this: if you want to get good grades in school, you can’t just hope that they’ll magically appear. You have to study hard and put in the effort to learn. The same goes for anything else you want to achieve in life. Whether it’s getting a job, making friends, or pursuing your passions, you have to take the initiative. You have to set goals for yourself and work towards them every day. That’s how you make things happen. So, next time you hear someone say “que sera sera,” remember that it’s not entirely true. Yes, there are some things we can’t control, but there’s a lot that we can. And it’s up to us to make the most of our opportunities and create the future we want to see. As we start a new week, remember that it’s a fresh start. It’s a chance to take charge of your life and make positive changes. Here, I share some tips to help you seize control of your destiny.

  • Take Action

Don’t just wait for things to happen—make them happen! Do things every day that help you get closer to your goals. It could be studying for a test, meeting new people to find a job, or practising something new. Every little thing you do brings you closer to what you want.
  • Stay Positive

Sometimes things don’t go the way we want, and that’s okay. Bad things happen to everyone sometimes. But don’t let them bring you down. Stay happy and keep going forward. Every time you get over a hard time, you become stronger.
  • Be Persistent

Success doesn’t happen right away. It takes time and effort. Keep working hard and don’t give up, even if things are tough. Keep going, and you’ll get where you want to be.
  • Stay Flexible

Life is full of surprises, and sometimes your plans might change. That’s okay! Be open to new ideas and be ready to change your plans if you need to. Being able to adapt will help you deal with whatever comes your way.
