Fulfill Your Destiny or Meet Your Fate!

Did I mention I’m a geek? I’m such a geek that I still play tabletop role-playing games. One such game included in its rules the best definitions for Destiny and Fate I have ever encountered, and those definitions guide my choices day by day. According to Steve Jackson’s In Nomine

  • Your Destiny is what might happen with your life if you make every right decision, follow every golden opportunity, catch all the right breaks. It’s what happens if you achieve the best possible outcome in every factor of your existence.
  • Your Fate is the result of making taking every possible wrong turn, making every harmful mistake available, and catching not one lucky break your entire life. It’s the worst possible outcome of your time here on Earth.

Neither is likely to happen. Nobody avoids every mistake or has zero good luck between the cradle and the big adios. We all fall somewhere in between those extremes, with equal opportunities to say “I love it when a plan comes together” and “I coulda been a contender.”

Where you land on the Fate <–> Destiny spectrum isn’t all that important. What’s more important is understanding that where you land is up to you. Your daily choices are what drives this more than any other factor.

My job is to help people move toward their destinies. I work with you to identify your dreams, guide you through turning them into goals, and hound you tirelessly until those goals become realities. I’ve done this for growing children, college-bound teens, small business owners and major corporate leaders. I’ve done it for new parents struggling with home organization, and for internationally competitive athletes. I can do it for you.

If you’re looking for a cheerleader to smile and say “Great Job!” no matter how bad you break the promises you made to yourself, I’m not your guy. If you want a guy who says “I’ll wait” on the phone when you start making excuses about why you didn’t send that scary email to a prospect, a guy who only says “Well Done!” when you in fact did well, a guy who calls you on your bullshit and smiles when you do the same to him…then we should definitely talk.
