    But not set by birth or fate for sure!


    There is an examn and your goal was to get an A.

    You get a B but the average is C. This doesn't make the B better. You failed, because you didn't reach your goal. It doesn't matter how many others suceed or how good is a B in comparison to them. You failed.

    So i don't look at others or just the survivors. I look at me and my goals. And when i fail, i'll work harder and won't be pleased by still being better than the average.


    Being hungry for challenge, being selfresponsible and looking for help doesn't have anything to do with what you posted.
    Looking for help and let s.o. help you
    Exams (educational exams this is) are designed to split people up into a hierarchy.

    That is, the exam creators want a %age of top grades, a %age of 2nd grades etc etc and a%age of failures.

    An individual can go up or down this hierarchy but the hierarchy is rigid and not everyone can pass the exam. Wanting to make this sort of system into one where the entire responsbility for passing or failure goes onto the indidivuals is ridiculous.

    So it is with something in wow - the arena system for example only allows for so many people at each grade and theres no way for everyon to win. HC raids are similar, they are desinged to exclude most players.

    please, stop reading tony robbins or whatever "you can do it" nonsense you've unquestioningly imbibed and look at how things really occur. Thanks.

    Which is why you are fucking this up. You are thinking that you are the sole determinant of your results. Actually you play a minor role.

    You aren't the world.

    I think we both are a good example of how different mindsets could be.

    I agree.

    Problem is, we are both a success and you are factually wrong.

    He has a different perspective than you own his life and therefor is handling it differently.
    When things arent going his way he is trying to change things instead of just letting it happen.
    Because why accept things the way they are if you can TRY and change it into a possitive thing?

    Why on earth do you think i am not doing those things?

    And why on earth do you think that the people who fail aren't also doing those things?

    Because they choose not to. People who are willing to change things will do so and some people succeed in changing eventhough the others said it was impossible.
    And therefor they haven proven them wrong.

    I think that this thread has gone on long past its usefulness. The OP hasn't posted in weeks and the discussion has devolved into a couple perspectives talking in circles to each other over and over again. I don't believe that anyone involved is going to change the minds of the people who disagree and that there is nothing more constructive that will come out of this thread.
