By all means, hope. Pray. Hold thumbs.
It’s all a form of mental manifestation.
Just make sure you work more than you hope.
Sometimes your success (or failure) is dependent on a lucky break.
Sometimes all you can do is hope for the best.
That’s just startup life, you’ll get used to accepting that not everything is within your control.
What is in your control is how hard you work.
Work more than you hope.
