Waiting for a miracle?

Every year, tens of thousands of people get into a famous college of their choice. It’s not unlikely that someone will get in, it’s simply not certain that you will.
But someone will, so getting isn’t a miracle, it’s simply a long shot.
If you add a pound a day to the leg press machine at the gym, it’s possible to have the ability to press 250 pounds within a year.
It’s difficult and grueling, but not a long shot.
Neither of these outcomes requires a miracle. The first might have low odds, and the second requires persistence.
But a miracle is something that’s never happened before, and is not to be counted on.
