My understanding for success:
Your designation must match your visit purpose, a good salary / strong tie-ups with home country for ex. Family, children, property etc. should help. A clear message must be passed on that you don’t have any intensions to work over there now or in future.
Every case is unique, so don’t think about the counter numbers or the results of other person in front of you.
I strongly suggest from the time you enter the consulate until you meet the Visa Officer, just focus on only yourself…your preparation, don’t try to discuss with others and their experiences or try to get more information… because there is a risk of somebody scare you with some information. If you believe you are very strong and only will take the positives and ignore the negatives then you can talk to others.
But the key is…just focus on your case ONLY and be CONFIDENT.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you are tensed, nervous…do some breathing exercise…take a deep breath, hold for some time, and release slowly…repeat this until you are comfortable.
