P equals PLAN, a premeditated process you perform. Not random luck you wish for at the last minute.

R equals REALISTIC , something that goes along with the laws of nature rather than defies them.

A equals AND...

Y equals YAHWISTIC or in accordance with Yahweh, loving.

E equals EVENTUAL rather than instantaneous.

R equals RESULT which is the cumulative effect of the process.

Religious moron: Sure, I'll pray for you.

Religious moron: I'm positive that the grace of God will help you pass the test.
Me: I think God is too busy with everything else in the universe to help me pass a test.
