I have never heard that living one's life and deserving victory as selfish. Interesting thought but, in my opinion, that thought is flawed. Instead
of living YOUR life, you are living the life made for you by another. I suppose, in that way, you allowed your life to be preordained and have indeed
proven your point. Unfortunately, you only proved that you allowed this to happen.
We make our choices, we make our life. If I choose to do or not to do something, it wasn't preordained, it was simply my choice to make. In fact, I
believe I've heard it said:
"There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance
A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance
A planet of play things
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive
'The stars aren't aligned
Or the gods are malign...'
Blame is better to give than receive
You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill"
