Do you believe in luck? Do you believe that some unseen supernatural power somewhere is responsible for everything that happens to you? When something doesn’t go as per plan do you blame fate? Is that your best excuse? Or do you analyse what went wrong? How the accident could have been avoided? How you could have achieved it? If you do, then you believe in sweat. Life is too short to leave it to fate.
