The Destiny of a Sophisticate
"I am the Master of my Fate: I am the Captain of my Soul" Invictus 

Small moments have changed and shaped the course of my life forever.  Looking back on  those moments I realized that it wasn't the situation or moments that changed the course of my life it was my actions towards them. 

Why did I move towards them? What was the motivation to cause me to take those actions? The fact I wanted to change my fate and create my destiny. How  did I get the courage to act upon those moments? My happiness. My happiness created my destiny.

"It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped." Anthony Robbins

In the movie 'Lawrence of Arabia' (1962), Lawrence was told that traveling across the desert was impossible because it was foretold. He decided to ignore the truth that everyone believed and believe his own truth.  Believing was is in his mind he disproves what was foretold. When he tells them that they were right, it was written. He points to his mind. Whatever was written was "written" in his conscious belief.  It was written in his knowledge of his strength, resilience, and endurance allowed him to achieve what was previously believed as impossible.

“Failure’s what befalls a man who fails to act. Destiny is for men who refuse to accept their failures as their fate. We’ve all had failures. Don’t let ’em define you."  Nashville (2012)

A Sophisticate moves away from what makes her unhappy and moves towards what makes her happy. Success is that simple. Fate is what befalls a Sophisticate as a result of indecision and lack of action. 

If a Sophisticate fails (A Sophisticate is  Failure) or presented with an obstacle or is unhappy it's up to a Sophisticate to determine or decide whether those that situation is going to define her and her life. Her fate can become her destiny if she does nothing. Does a Sophisticate do nothing? No.

Destiny is the result of her passion and love.  

"There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it" from 'Brave' (2012)

The desires and what she is passionate about leaves an imprint on her heart. When a Sophisticate has enough passion about something, her dreams and imagination become thoughts.  Her thoughts become reality and when circumstances present themselves that make her happy she acts upon them. Those actions towards what makes her happy result in her destiny.

The destiny of a Sophisticate is the outcome of what she acts upon. What is pre-destined or  what is written cannot be found anywhere else except what is felt in her heart. To act upon it takes her being brave. (A Sophisticate is Brave)

"Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous" Albert Einstein

The universe or what people call fate do not have surprises in store. There are no surprises or coincidences. A Sophisticate has determined her fate by doing nothing. She changes her destiny by moving towards what makes her happiest and what she loves

"Who a Sophisticate falls in love with is fate. When the same person falls in love with her and they meet it's destiny"

The same happens when it comes to love. When a Sophisticate is happiest in her life. When a Sophisticate moves towards who she is what she loves, she finds who she loves (A Sophisticate finds her Soulmate). 

"It's true; Life really is generous to those who pursue their destiny" Paulo Coelho

The man she loves shares her happiness and her passion. The man who is her destiny shares something deep inside that can't be seen  only felt. There is something deep inside that makes her happy. The man who is her soul mate is the embodiment of what is written inside of her heart. 

"Your greatest responsibility in your life is to be the best version of yourself. When you feel for what the soul believes that is who you become" Shannon Alden

The destiny of a Sophisticate is what she decides. She may not have control over the moments that her path but she has control over herself. More importantly, she has love for herself. In the end, the destiny of a Sophisticate is to be the best version of herself by acting on what makes her the happiest with honesty, love, and kindness. ;D
