Success and failure are not contagious, they are outcomes of our actions.
So far as many of your predecessors succeeded does not automatically guarantee your success.
So far as others have failed does not mean you will fail at all cost.
Do not be carried away or discouraged by the successes and failures of others.
Your success or failure is hugely determined by your efforts, strategies and discipline.
Let the successes of others move and encourage you to accept that you can.
Let the failures of others caution you to accept the fact that you can also fail.
You can make it, do not be carried away or discouraged by the words and actions of others.
