“When nothing is sure, everything is possible.” – Margaret Drabble
Many think that when the situation is unsure, you should be cautious. This way of thinking paralyzes you to act decisively and take risks. Success is usually the result of taking risks without thinking of failure.
Action Plan: Want to succeed more than the others? Think of all the possibilities rather the impossibilities.
