No offense but you are confusing objective with subjective. You meant to use "subjective."
Objective means something that can consistently be measured to be the same by two separate individuals/groups. Say the height, weight, length, hp...etc. of a car. Those are all objective values. The height of a stock Impreza WRX will be the same in NYC as it will be in LA. Same with the weight of a stock car. Those are objective values. They are independent of any opinions.
Subjective is the opposite. It takes into account your personal feelings, beliefs, past history, perspective...etc. and allows you to come to a conclusion. Like stating MBP or DGM are the best colors on a car. That is subjective. So I laugh when you state that something has objective good lucks. That is an oxymoron.
