The Illusion of the Coincidence
Most often, people consider that they can become in a VIP position by just reading influential people's biographies. A fighter jet pilot thinks that he can become the U.S. president just because George W. Bush was once doing the same job. This is mere illusion and this thinking diverts the person from knowing the abilities that are specefic to him. Maybe the aspiring pilot does not have the leadership skills to become a president. It's unwise to make comparisons because it's rare to find two people who have the same abilities.
