No one can change destiny

A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is whre a train stops. And on  my desk, I have a work station ….

Thank you Stephen, for sharing the following story with us.

During a momentous battle, a Japanese general decided to attack even though his army was greatly outnumbered. He was cconfident that they would win, but his men were filled with doubt.

On their way to the battlefield, they stopped at a religious shrine. After praying wih his men, the general took out a coin and said; “I shall now toss this coin. If it is heads, we will win. If it is tails, we will lose. destiny will now reveal itself.”

He threw the coin into the air and everone watched intently as it landed. It was heads. The soliers were so overjoyed and filled with confidence that they vigorously attacked the enemy and were victorious.

After the battle, a lieutenant remarked to the general. “No one can change destiny.”

“You are correct,” the general replied as he showed the lieutenant the coin, which had heads on both sides.
