Fate and Destiny

Is there a difference between fate and destiny?...many people use the words interchangeably as though it makes no difference at all...but in actuality, there is a difference...some say fate is something that you are going to meet and there is nothing you can do to change it...fate sounds negative doesn’t it? you’re resigning yourself to your fate...many times it’s used in a negative manner...destiny they say it something that you can change...let’s say you want to become a great actor and you take acting classes, maybe you started off in school plays or something like that, and you work hard towards achieving your goal...years may go by and then one become an ‘overnight’ success...some will say that you were destined to become a great actor...the truth being your hard work shaped your destiny...or it could be you became a great entrepreneur because you went to college and took essential course, took chances, worked hard and so on, and you became a great success...again, people would say you were destined for success...few if any would say that your fate was to become a successful business person...fate tends to mean you have no control whereas destiny indicates you did something to ‘make things happen’ those energetic go-getters like to say.
