I agree that where there is risk one is bound to fail and which most of the time tastes very bitter, but I know success is even sweet and thus making risk profitable. One witty fellow once said, “100% of the shots you do not take do not go in”. The famous basket ball player M. Jordan admitted that his success was due to the many shots he had taken and missed.
A failure is just a tough decision waiting to be made. It is not hard to make decisions when you have self confidence whether you succeed or fail. In fact, when you believe in yourself totally, when you fall you will easily pick yourself up and try again. Someone told me that the alternatives you have, the harder the choice you have to make.
The presence of adversity is like an opportunity screaming;”seize me!” The interesting thing about it is that both adversity and opportunity do not last long. Anyone who discovers the secret to controlling their minds and thus self confidence has a greater treasure than a gold-miner. It is very interesting to realize how opportunities come and go. They come like an open book, sometimes disguised as problems. A wise man will create more chances than are available.
The biggest fool today is he who waited for perfect circumstances so as to act, what if they never come? If your ship does not come in, you have the option of waiting or you can swim unto it. This will only take real SELF CONFIDENCE which is within all of those who seek for it.
