A young man who was always drunk and believing that life had been unfair to him, one day visited a witch doctor concerning his future. The witch doctor brought out two native post, one white and the other black, and a millipedes.
He told the young man that the millipede will determine his destiny . He asked him to watch, that if the millipede enters into the white pot he will have a bright future and if it enters the black pot his life will be miserable. So he set the pot apart and allowed the millipede to do its job. At first, the millipede started crawling towards the white pot but suddenly change its course towards the black pot. The young man became apprehensive, watching the millipede keenly.
As the millipede was about to enter into the pot, he hurriedly stood up, pick the millipede and threw it into the white pot and said he can not be there and allow a millipede determine his destiny.
Moral: Your destiny is in your own hand. Take control.
