lets be honest, in life, so people are successful and better at certain things than others. It is what makes us human. Now, try to observe how most of the most successful people in life have connections/contacts. They know a variety of people. Some of them might have been self-made. But the others got successful through successful connections. Knowing people increases your luck, so if you know a lot of bad people, chances are your luck is going to turn out bad. If you barely know anyone, you have a 50/50 chance and so on. With this in mind, I highly advise you to get to know people on the right path as you never know when you will need them later or how they will affect your life.
For those not doing well academically, there is still hope, there is handwork and connections/contacts. Go meet people and show them what you can do, reveal your achievements if you have any and your "luck" might just take a turn. Look at this way, You have a product that you want sold, YOU have the option of exposing it to 100 people . Now the chance of someone buying the is lets say %25. Or You can show it to 1000 people, and the chances of selling it is STILL 25. But!25 of 1000 is how many people? exactly( too lazy to calculate). Now since more people are exposed to your product, you have a higher chance of SUCCESS at selling your product.
I was sitting down and that thought came to me. I decided to quickly right it down. I wrote this on a paper and will look at it everyday. I am making an attempt to meet new people who look like they are on the right path and see how my life goes.
Feel free to add anything or correct me in any mistakes I have made. Thanks!
