Hypotheticals hardly mean anything when you view them through a lens of utter pessimism. When have you actually tried this strategy?

If you go in believing you'll fail, you will fail. It's that simple.

Stop addressing me, it's seriously creepy.

Funny, I thought I was replying to content in an open forum to further a conversation.
