Make a Bigger Net
A lot of life is luck. There are two tricks to capturing luck. One, you learn where to look. Two, you keep casting bigger nets.
This rule applies to business, relationships, etc.
You want a successful business? Learn what works, network with people who have been successful. Learn from them. Mimic them. Be prepared to try and fail a few dozen times. The person who perseveres, adapts and optimizes is going to drastically increase his chances of getting lucky. The more nets (business ideas) you cast intelligently, the more likely you are to catch some profit.
You want a good relationship? Start by looking in the right places. And then don’t be afraid to fail. The more you fail, the more you’ll adapt, the better you’ll get.
Remember: You can’t catch any fish if you never cast a net.
The more you fish, the more you learn the hot spots. The places where you’re most likely to catch the kind of fish you’re looking for. So get out there, and start fishing. The more you try, the bigger your net will get.
