My Model Is Broken

I set out to be the winner of a book contest and worked my ass to complete a work I am very proud of.
I believed that what I think will lead to the action and to the result I want but my model got broken.

Here is what happened:

C: Literature Contest
T: I will submit an epic novel and win this contest!
F: Motivated, Determined
A: Write on schedule, complete an epic novel and submit it to the contest
R: I lost the contest

How come?
