Humans are unable to comprehend the existence of randomness, claiming our ability to understand events that have no reason for occurrence. We assign causality and attempt to understand events that have no explanation. We read articles about "5 things all millionaires did to become rich", ignoring the fact that the other 99% of us did the same things, we were just unlucky. If I flip a coin an infinite amount of times, at some point it will land on tails a million times in a row, purely because of luck, nothing more. Be humble about what you've achieved, you're a product of luck.
