Absolutely not !
We can and do bring about all the events in our lives.
There within us is the spark of God that causes us to want to attain a better life.
But it is our decision to either make our dreams come true or not.
We make the choices and a lot of people settle for what they think they can get, instead of working to make their lives exactly what they want.
People like to blame their problems on something else, instead of taking responsibility, so they claim their lives and their circumstances were predestined.
