●Success and failure are two sides of the same coin. How a coin lands, though, is entirely up to luck. But, life is no coin. Green does not believe in luck. One does not simply gain or get ahead in life at random— success is achieved with hard work, failure is received when not enough work was given. If luck were on a coin, its polar would be karma. Because they are reflections, the same rules apply to this idea in Green’s mind. The world cannot punish you, but, you can punish yourself. Karma is a simple trick of guilt: they say one mistake leads to another, but that doesn’t change the fact that the mistake was made from your own actions. If you refuse to change those actions that caused your mistake, you will continue to fail. That is karma.
Positivity blames success to luck; negativity blames failure to karma.
That is the coin.
But, Green’s life is not coin, and the only thing he has to blame for the outcome is himself.
