There are many other words that people associate with the word destiny. They differ in the emotional and attitude we take towards the subject matter.
Destiny has a hint of greatness in it. Rather than “luck” or “fate” which is more passive. Destiny implies great effort as well. If it’s my destiny to be “Ruler of the Universe”, or “The Best Carpenter in the World”, then it pushes me to actively work towards that goal that I believe is my destiny.
It also implies that fate and luck might intervene to make it happen or not happen.
