MASTER OF HIS FATE?

Somewhere someone wrote that " Man is master of his fate." In my view, that is not true. How do I control what happens to me when I am caught in a rainstorm far distant from an occupied enclave?

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS - PART 1

This post reproduces a leture which, in May 2002, I gave to a group of graduating High School students. I just stumbled upon this draft and thought I'll share it with you my fellow bloggers.
