Set Goals You Control

When you set goals you don’t have control over, you will think it’s impossible. That’s why you want to focus on the things you control.

Make old Moves

You can't achieve anything if you lock yourself up in your home. To live life to the fullest, you need to make bold moves. And this doesn't necessarily imply risk-taking.

Try to limit your potential losses. Protect the downside.
