Some people are born with a four-leafed clover up their butts, but that is the exception and not the rule. "Never" is too strong of a word in your question, IMO. And A-holes don't always get what they want, but they're more likely to tell you they did.
In all failed attempts there is a lesson to learn. Those who are truely successful in life have tried & failed many times before, yet tried & tried again with the 'belief' in their successful outcome. Have faith! Those who don't try & appear to get everything they want will not be anywhere near as strong a person as those who have dusted themselves down many times before & tried again with a new approach. One day they are likely to fall & not be able to pick themselves up, that's where you excel past them!
Do not get discourage by this because they will have to face the other side of death. On August 1, 1982 A.D. a Sunday morning GOD shown me in a vision the other side of death. It is glorious. So I do know what is waiting for me personally when I do go over to the other side of death. I am one of those people who tries and never succeed by the world standard but it does not bother me and do not let it bother you. Thank you.
