☆ influence 影響を与える
This week’s useful phrase is, “Your actions influence your future.” I think this is a much better way of thinking about fortune-telling, don’t you? In this way, you know that you can influence and change your future.
In fact, if you think about it, your doctor could be called a “fortune-teller” too! Many doctors say things like, “If you keep eating in this way, you’ll get heart disease.” That’s like they are predicting the future! But, in a positive way – because they are giving you the information you need to influence your future – change your eating habits, stop drinking or smoking, or exercise more.
