Destiny is an inspiring song that really sinks deep into my heart. The message of the song is one that many people would relate to. Many who are struggling and hussling to make it in life. Many who stick to their guns and are persistent about their goals. Many who desire to live the life of their dreams and passion. Many who would like to be happy doing what they love. Many who refuse to be derailed into taking other path just because every other person is towing the same path. Many who have been told they can not and will not make it. Many who believe and stay true to themselves and their destiny.
The point is, know who you are and where you are going. You have to listen to your inner self, identify your self and what you are meant to be do in life, be determined to stay on course with your vision regardless of distractions. Will Smith once said in the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" that "Do not let other people tell you that you can not achieve something just because they can not achieve it" No wonder the last verse of the song reads:
"People tell me its a highway and I've thought/ponder about letting go.. And I've thought of taking the route everybody else has been taking, but I know I have to find my own destiny"
