The belief that one win will lead to another, or past failures necessitate?more failure.
Also called the hot hand fallacy, this is the opposite of regression to the mean. It is a common bias that a win, or series of good fortunes, indicates more good things ahead. The same can be said of failure. The truth is these things are largely random, and over time, the good and the bad average out. Don’t get complacent when things are going well, and don’t lose hope when it seems like the world is conspiring to make you fail.
