Why it matters to be open minded

In the first place, you are going to miss a hell lot of opportunities to accomplish something awesome.

There are opportunities showing up every day, but only a few people are taking advantage of at least few of them.

By having a bad general conception about local brokers, you are not giving credit to an ending that could have been great.

This happens very often. Open mindness could make you rich.

The biggest hurdle we face while doing any task is before we actually start doing it. It's the motivation to come out of our comfort zone. We humans have this serious habit of procrastinating that it becomes a challenge on itself to even start doing something productive. So, no matter whether you want to fulfill your goal or not, you should start doing the task. Just take the first step of doing it.

This has often hit me that I struggle the most to start doing a task rather than when I start doing it.
