How to Control My Destiny?

This is perhaps the most intriguing question that we all have in our minds. No matter how practical or successful we are in life at some point the question invariably bothers us all. Even those who have attained success by sheer hard work and good planning have that odd feeling at times that somehow, an inexplicable force dominates our lives, we call it destiny.

Now whether we control destiny or that mysterious element drives us is debatable. Those who believe that we are empowered to manage most of the variables and that man makes his or her own destiny have a logical case and rightly so. Those who believe that destiny is predetermined and we have little control over it have their viewpoint. The viewpoint of former can be scientifically presented as credible evidence backed by statistics with exceptions though. The latter on the other hand do not have mass statistics to prove that numbers influence and impact lives of the people.

I will try to explain in this article that destiny is a distinct reality and we may not be able to control it but can certainly position ourselves in relation to it. In a mathematical juxtaposition order can be rearranged. In this case, the path or itinerary can be chosen and changed.To what point we decide to reach is however our personal decision in life.

Readers find occult sciences to be subjective, verbose and difficult to comprehend. Numerology in particular seems to be quite complex and abstract. On the contrary it is indeed very simple. There are two approaches to it, follow the advice in good faith from a good source or be rational and get the answer to 'Why', if unconvinced, reject it at that point before proceeding on that route any further.

I suggest readers should follow the advice in good faith but consult a good numerologist. I however find that word 'Numerologist' should be rephrased as to me it is pure science. You are aware that in order to explain a phenomenon or idea there is a logical sequence in which thoughts flow, what, why, how and when. 'What', is the focal point whereas the other three support and explain the proposition in terms of financial viability if it is a business idea and other factors.

You may have a new idea, a plan to expand operations by stepping into new territories, forming a new company or division, launching a new brand, starting a new marketing campaign, a crisp slogan or finding an appropriate name for your newborn. Almost all these activities have one thing in common. You need a name to distinguish and identify that entity. In other words, a new entity will be born and will have to acquire a name to exist and perform in this world. Names contain letters, letters represent numbers and the numbers have meaning.

Now the same question arises. How to control my destiny?

You have two choices. Just don't believe this and decide whatever you think is good for your new venture or newborn baby. Or wait. Think about an implied rule of grammar that names can be written in many ways as long as their pronunciation is not distorted. It's a common practice to write names and brands in different ways. Like Abhijit Gopal and Abhijeet Gopal are not the same names from the viewpoint of numerology. Similarly, a brand say, Quick, can also be written as Quik but with different connotation.

Do you think that these changes really make any difference? Believe me they do. That is the most important decision that we make in life. It is even more important than a sound business plan and an inspired name for your baby that means something great. All these different names add up to different numbers and that is what makes them soft, strong, kind, powerful, lucky, neutral or unlucky in some cases.

I have found that there are distinct paths or trajectories set for certain names/ numbers depending on the final number that the name adds up to and its cumulative total. That may be interpreted as what we know as destiny. To me that is a track on which we journey along time. The same is true for a product or company etc. It is the sum of the numbers that complete name denotes and one letter here and there makes a path that could be very different from one another.

The name of Indian celebrity Shah Rukh Khan for instance adds up to a very lucky number. You would agree that in showbiz in particular, luck plays a key role compared to the other fields.

Of course if you cage a leopard then it won't be able to show its prowess. It needs a door to exit confinement so it can be free and then you see a magnificent creature at its best. That is true if you choose a good name for whatever you want, your baby, a new product, a slogan, company so on and so forth. For a company or brand for example you need a robust strategy, ample funds and an ambitious team and of course an able leader to steer the business. For your baby, you need good training, education and healthcare.

But that is too general a statement and universally applicable, you might say. Is it?

No, absolutely not. With a good name, a pleasant journey begins and success awaits you.

Companies, brands, people, movies, books etc. succeed and fail in the course of daily life. You see big brands collapsing despite massive support. Powerful companies come crashing down for reasons that are discovered later. Very successful people in business and showbiz encounter sudden fall. People fail in love and married relationships with no fault of their own. Look around, you will find happy couples break up and you wonder why. Some celebrities are very successful for no apparent reasons. Some movies are successful with lousy script and great movies flop despite having achieved perfection in all departments.

It all appears as mere cause and effect relationship but there are some distinct commonalities in entities having numbers categorized as lucky in numerology, which again to me is pure science.

Definition of destiny varies from person to person. But generally speaking we should all agree on one definition, its like opening of doors that lead you to better phases in life and the process is ongoing. That to me is good destiny, for a person, company, brand, country and so on.

Here I summarize it. A good name coupled with good attributes and plans ensures success. A not-so-good name coupled with good attributes and plans may or may not succeed. Success implies opening of doors for the better.

You will find people who are very successful in corporate or other sectors but are not happy in love or marital relations. Is that good luck? Well, I don't think so.

Now the question that we started with, 'How to control my destiny'?

In my view, it is very important to give a good name to an entity at birth, be it a company, brand, slogan or your baby. But even if we change or adjust the spellings of the names later which may not be a major change and might not even get noticed by others, it greatly helps. For example, Jaffar Hussain if changed to Jaffer Hussain, or Jaffar Hussein, appear to be one and the same. Sushmita Agarkar, Sushmeeta Agarkar, Sushmeeta Agarker and Sushmita Agarker appear to be the same names written differently. In numerology though it is a massive shift from 'One' to 'Ten' and vice versa.

Now another question arises. Is it superstition to believe in numerology or more appropriately in numbers, or pure science (My claim or rather conviction)?

Well, we tend to reject a new idea or theory in one or more of the following situations;

1- It apparently seems to negate or conflict with our social, cultural, or religious beliefs.

2- We have a great deal of knowledge about it and can judge it on merit as a subject matter expert.

3- We have no knowledge of the proposed idea or theory.

A proper noun can be written in many ways especially the names of people, brands and companies etc. That is permissible by all societies, rules of grammar and common sense.

Therefore, the above three reservations are of little significance. If the reward is great and there is no violation of the general code of conduct then grab the opportunity even if you are not fully convinced about it. That is my sincere advice to all readers.

If you feel that others may consider you as superstitious, weak or impractical, don't blow the trumpet. Do it silently. The people are not very concerned about your well being anyways so stop worrying about them.
