Are you determined to achieve free will?

You can do what you will, but not will what you will. Or can you?Free will and determinismFree will is ones ability to make choices without hindrance. One of the common hindrances to argue against free will is determinism and the question would be as followed: How can I be a free agent if everything around me is determined which in turns determines me? For example, I didn't choose to be born in this city, with these parents, these genes and this environment but somehow I did, and these factors have determined the being which I am now. Where is my free will in that? Or in yet other words, did the big bang cause me to write this?

How to Learn & Enjoy Life More: The Power of Audio Learning

A few months ago, while living in Australia, I was given an assignment by my boss I was not at all thrilled about: drive 5 hours into the country, meet with a client for 2 hours, and drive back that night.At first, all I could think was "wait, whaaat? You want me to drive 10 hours to meet a guy for 2 hours? Can't I just call him or something?!?"It seemed like a gigantic waste of my time, but he was the boss and I, the employee, so I had to obey.
