It cannot be 100% all the time or you wouldn't be typing this message. You have succeeded more than you think. You yourself said " watch ones with

Imagine how horrible they would fail if they were up against the odds you are right now. Yes, some people succeed without earning it, it is handed to
them. Call it life, call it luck, call it chance, rich parents, timing. Who knows. You might even be subconsciously sabotaging yourself. But do not

This isn't meant to be negative, but positive. You may not be in control of the outcome of a situation, but you are in full control of how you
