The human being alone is gifted with choice of action. With this you determine your future. Destiny is the sum total of all your past choices. It is irrevocable. So if you look at your past you are a victim. With reference to the future you are a victor. At each juncture you are free to choose the way you think desire or act. Once chosen you are a victim of its effect.Think a negative, hateful thought. That moment you become a little more evil. The effect is failure, misery and sorrow. You carelessly entertain negative thoughts.
