It is always one number less than your new Number of Tries

Mental Attitude

Factors range from -1 to +1, as illustrated in the chart below. The calculator embeds the number for you automatically.

People You Know

You never know who can open doors for you and give you that break. Make a listing of everyone you know. Put that number in this section.

This is a probability SCORE of success. A negative number is indicative of poor outcome. As you change the paamaters, in particular the number of tries you will see how that SCORE will increment. Remember that it took 10,000 tries to get the light bulb.


See your results.

Try something like 2 IA, 2 AA,  2 T, 50 Tries (remember that if you tried 50 times you have "Failed" 49 times which the calculator uses automatically, use a negative attitude and say you know 100 people.

See your score.

Try it again but change your attitude to something positive.

Try it once more with 120 Tries and a very positive attitude. The Orange line shows you how your score is going up. The bar shows you how many tries you have invested.

Attitude is a multiplier!

Calculator will reset daily to zero so try it as many times as you like.

Early in life we may be wishing forward for the good grades, the ideal job, a new house, a better car or a happy marriage


Later in life many are wishing backwards for the things and actions they should have, could have done to make their dreams come true. I should have studied for that good grade, finished my degree for that ideal job, saved up for the house I wanted before it got out of reach or....

Who are the successful people?

Those are the individuals who wash away all obstacles in their way to forge a path to their goals. They are like the mighty river that carve the rock in the Grand Canyon, or the mighty seas who carry the big ships from continent to continent. Water is necessary for life but it its gentle look is misleading for it has power to give life.

To cleanse. To flow over, against or past. To carry, erode, remove or destroy by the action of moving water. To be carried away, removed or drawn by the action of water. to be revealed eventually. To turn out well in the end.

Lacking in strength of character or purpose; ineffective.
