A set of predetermined events within your life that are shaped by taking an active course is known as destiny. This is the part of our lives that the philosophy of destiny makes us believe. Much like karma, it depends on what you have done in the past and whether those actions were considered to be good or not.

That aspect of our lives that we do not seem to have control over can be termed to be fate. Even though both terms refer to our future, fate is a more mystery to us because it can turn out for worse or better and not being dependent on our past actions makes it even more confusing. It seems to have been divinely planned and in each and every case, the best should be wished for because it may help you in getting out of a bad time.
