This is a situation in which an individual presumes that they will succeed in what they are doing if they “do everything right”. If they don’t succeed, then it can only mean that there is something that was not done right.

It is evident in how we go about life. Most of us have goals, which can be generalized as “making it in life”. It is never considered that someone has genuinely failed to make it in life, but rather concluded that this individual did not do all that was supposed to be done to attain success.
