I always thught life ultimate gift to have purpose.Kinda like a hammer is meant to hit a nail. I thught that is the most greatest thing onee could could achive in life.
The question seems to equate "destiny" with "purpose." Many philosophies uphold destiny. But Objectivism upholds purpose as one of the three cardinal values for man's life qua man. For further insight on the meaning of purpose in Objectivism, refer to the topic of "Purpose" in The Ayn Rand Lexicon. Here is a brief sampling:
Productive work is the central purpose of a rational man's life, the central value that integrates and determines the hierarchy of all his other values.... [VOS Chap. 1]
If destiny is taken to imply predetermination, Objectivism rejects it. Objectivism regards purpose as a value to be achieved by man's choices and actions, not something that will come to him automatically (though perhaps only after prolonged and arduous perseverence) if only he has "faith" in his future.
