Fate Is in Your Own Hands

Once upon a time, there was a general who was leading his army into battle against an enemy ten times the size of his own. Along the way to the battle field, the troops stopped by a small temple to pray for victory.

Let’s pray wholeheartedly.” After a short prayer, the general tossed the coin. It landed with the heads on top.
The troops were overjoyed and went into the battle with high spirit.
Just as predicted, the smaller army won the battle. The soldiers were exalted, “It’s good to have the gods on our side! No one can change what they have determined.”
“Really?” The general showed them the coin–both sides of it were heads.

Thanks for allowing me to rant…
