May 10, 2012 – We like to think that we are masters of our destiny, don’t we? But the reality is that we are not much more than a collection of experiences and pressures that are outside of our control. Sure, e can exert some conscious willpower to try to direct out brain to go in a direction that we think seems logical. But really, we spend more time justifying our actions because we don’t really have a lot of control over our psychological impulses.
In essence, our lives are at the whim of the crap shooter. Sometimes the dice roll in our favour, sometimes they don’t.
But the really important thing is how we deal with a lousy roll.
