It’s not your desires, your hopes, your expectations, your opinions, your impression, your intuition, your experience, your imagination, your fantasy, your speculation, your creativity, your luck.
It’s the facts doing the talking.
You need to be humble to read the language of facts in an objective way. What did actually happen? How is that different from what you wanted?
There, in that difference, you have a chance to learn, adapt, change direction, start from scratch or quit.
t least, you won’t waste further time.
