  • It helps to think of things statistically.

    Every time you roll the dice, every side has a 16.6% chance.

    Each roll is a new event, each event resets the %-chance,

    ...because statistics doesn't remember the last die roll.

    The fact stands.

    How many people don't ask questions or don't better themselves because they think its stupid or too late?

    Quite a hell of a lot.

    Its never too late to do anything, at least you've done it, and others didn't make the effort.

    If you don't get a job, brush it off; it means you were one of 30 other people who got the boot.

    Numbers, guys, numbers.

    That's all life is.

    Failure is nothing.

    Your past is nothing.

    You know who you are today,

    You know who you want to be,

    That's all that matters.

    You can make amends with yourself.

    We live in an ocean of people, an ocean of statistics & probabilities.

    Ever seen someone who got their GED when they were 40?

    At least they did it, dammit!

    Why would anyone make fun of them?

    Because they're assholes, that's why.

    Compare yourself to yourself,

    Keep track of your own progress rather than looking for that elusive magic moment that's always brought fail and misery.
