If the way people think to succeed something is to belive that everything is decided by God, then I think all the years the athletes have been practicing are wasted. What's the point for them to practice in all those years when everything is set? What's the point for them to practice to be the best players in the games when everything is set? If one was not set to win the game, he/she wouldn't win it eventually because it was God's decision even though he/she was the best one in that game????? It doesn't make any sense to me. I know it's nice to believe in something; however, if one thinks God decides everything in their lives, then what is the point of living when all he/she thinks is whatever he/she does still won't make a difference since it's already set?
The amazing thing about human beings is we never tend to give up. When we fall, we'll get up and try again. We never give up our hopes and that's how I think one should live his/her life. Giving up hopes or believing that God is there somewhere to help them when they can/can't do something is just not how to live a life. People should believe in themselves. They should know what they are capable of. Also, they should believe what they can do and always try their best to do the things. If fail, they'll try again. No blaming on God or luck or anything. It's because in a game, someone must win and maybe they've practiced, but the other person has practiced more than them. So that person deserves to win.
