NO! I read everything you wrote with great interest, as I have ken_b's follow up. It is always useful and valuable to learn what is working for people, as it is to learn what didn't work for people.
There will always be those who prefer just moan about their 'bad luck', and be personally affronted by someone else's good fortune and successful effort. It doesn't seem to me to be a very constructive or positive way to approach the world but it's their choice.
