At first glance, this question almost engulfed me into thinking rather shallow and exclaiming that fate has little to no control. However, I believe that fate's control may perhaps be directly proportional to one's "closeness" to God; yet, I speculate even that may be simplifying this too much. If one is close to God; he/she will have extinguished any fear and being "one" with God will be acting as a significant co-patriot.
This is where the "rub" comes though; I believe if one is significantly "close" to God, their fate is signed, sealed and delivered. Yet they have little to fear. Therefore, I conclude that being close to God will allow you to "see" your fate and understand that there is no worries relating to this; however, if one is not close to God; then significant anxiety will always hover around this question. After I survived a comatose experience I was hit by a drunk driver while in my car (SUV). Here is the link: http://connorj.hubpages.com/hub/Gods-Pawn
Fate has a control on life as birth and death itself is not in our control.
What is fate? when an unexpected thing happen we call it fate.Foe every good and bad, we tell it or call it as fate.
It may be the Law of nature.I think so.
I think it controls us till the time we die.I don't believe in randomness of other things because I think such a relation doesn't exist. I moreover think about a question who controls the fate and is there just one fate which is same for everyone or everyone has different fate.
Fate definition: something that unavoidably befalls a person; fortune; lot: It is always his fate to be left behind.
the universal principle or ultimate agency by which the order of things is presumably prescribed; the decreed cause of events; time: Fate decreed that they would never meet again.
that which is inevitably predetermined; destiny: Death is our ineluctable fate.
a prophetic declaration of what must be: The oracle pronounced their fate.
death, destruction, or ruin
I believe to a certain extent fate does contribute to our lives. But, We also have free will to make our own decisions. Tough question really. Say you leave in a hurry for work and you are in a car accident. I suppose that is fate. If you would have been on time? Would you have been in the accident? Yes, fate does contribute to our lives in a substantial way.
very small extent. We create our own fates to greater extent, and if you believe in a God, He has a lot of input.
Fate is just another word for random action or happenstance.
An attempt to justify the things that occur over which we have no control.
A lightning bolt has no driver, if it hits you that is just because you happened to be in the way. It was going to strike there anyway.
If something happens to someone else we call it bad, or good, luck.
But if it effects us we have an inner desire to answer that great question "why?".
We label it fate and claim it was destined to be that way, much the same reasons we invent gods. To fill in the blanks we can't fill in ourselves. To answer questions we don't know the answers to. To blame when there is no one else to blame.
Zero. Everything that happens in our lives is directly controlled by the choices made by ourselves and others.
A psychiatrist explained to me that when you are happy people want to be around you. Because of this, there is bound to be a person among them who will have something positive instored for you; something you've been desiring. In that sense we control fate if we are aware of how to think and act. Read the following:

From the day we are born, we are already exposed to destiny of fate.
But in terms of Feng Shui concept, we have the chance of changing our own destiny of fate. It is a matter as whether or not you want to make that change or resign to fate.
It is our OWN will or the choice to live by God's will that controls our life. I do believe that certain things do take place for a reason, however.
I don't believe in fate per se. I believe we are given choices and led to those choices by signs dropped from the universe that we ourselves created. I suppose you can say we make our own fates, our own lives, our own universe from the energy we are sending out, which attracts those things to us.
50 % I believe So IF not others..!!
Other half Is Our Will..!!
I completely believe in fate. There are reasons for it. The life I am living today is not the one I had really wished. But everything happened in a way that I also couldn't understand. So it's all the role of fate that decides our lives.
