The term chance is from c. 1300, "something that takes place, what happens, an occurrence" (good or bad, but more often bad), especially one that is unexpected, unforeseen, or beyond human control, also "one's luck, lot, or fortune," good or bad, in a positive sense "opportunity, favorable contingency;" also "contingent or unexpected event, something that may or may not come about or be realized," from Old French cheance "accident, chance, fortune, luck, situation, the falling of dice."
Is there a chance you do not control your destiny? Where are your chances? What are your opportunities? It is easy to sit around and wait for chances to happen. The difficult part is to take initiative and innovate. Create a chance. Create your destiny.
