    i try not to, i find it brings negative thoughts into the mix. most successes are born in a night (or in some other frame but still relatively 'instant') and there are always miscellaneous things at work. ever thought how many won lottery tickets you've been in immediate range of

    I don't get down about missed opportunities because I generally believe the best opportunities are still to come

    But I do try to understand the nature of opportunity so I can be better prepared when it does appear

    also, I think the "success born overnight by random chance" maxim misses the fact that that person still needs to go to work every day to figure out how to make that success into something worthwhile

    For example, Henry's got his big break - but is he going to convert it into a long-running streaming career? The break is somewhat random (though understanding the randomness and putting yourself in the right place/right time is valuable) but the conversion is not.

    lets see
    Henry_dota is evolving into a great poster and great human being. It has not been an easy path - nor a short one. Tread lightly, lest you crush the larvae of his amelioration underfoot before they molt into beautiful butterflies.
    purples a fucking psycopath
    you guys wouldn't stop making fun of him and now you've made him a regular poster. this is divine justice...
    henry_dota plays dota the way dota is meant to be played

    thats an entirely different conversation about whether or not he's ready or equipped to handle something like that

    its a shame I no longer have the extremely psychotic mental breakdown clips of inthe6. Twitch allows streamers to simply delete any clips made from their stream...

    If you never saw them, the clips were basically him saying "Why do people always ruin my games - this game is my life (while proceeding to run down mid). Another one contained him walking around the room on cam saying "I need to break something I am so angry" with his pussy wrist straps on because hes got some nerd genetic problem in his wrists (probably for the insane amount of hours he plays dota and is still 5k). He genuinely had tears in his eyes when he said that..Kids absolutely pathetic.

    Did I mention he had a noose as his profile picture on steam for over 6 months? "RawdotaTV" is just another socially awkward hideous virgin who took advantage of the "ESL Twitch purge" by streaming EG games. He'll continue to have a few hundred viewers because of the insane amount he had before because of how many 2k-3k brainless zombies own a twitch account and genuinely ask for advice from this psycho because he puts (Educational) in his title.
