That’s true, someone else did get lucky.
That’s true, they got “lucky” because they’ve done some great deeds in the past.
Since you can’t change their past and your past, the way forward is to make your “future-past” better.
In the future, your past is going to be what’s your present in the moment.
What you do today, will be your past tomorrow.
What are you going to do today, create a new “today” or mourn over what’s not working?
