The Daily Note - Can't Fear a Mistake $AAPL $AMZN $CMG $LNKD $NFLX

*****Living life in fear will actually make you do more mistakes than if you takes chances. It really depends on where you put trust in your judgement; from the head or from the heart (or gut). I say you have to follow your heart/gut otherwise you'll judge yourself in hindsight. In other words, you view the possible when you take chances, and you view the impossible when you see what was possible in hindsight.

How often have you seen the charts of AAPL AMZN CMG LNKD NFLX which I follow and update on my PlayList daily? How often have you thought it impossible that it will go higher, thinking from your head and how often have you wished you listened to your heart/gut ?

Wishful thinking is hindsight in large part and it will actually create fear looking forward. In other words, you won't see it as possible, making it less likely that you will take that chance. Hindsight only reveals your fear of making a mistake and an excuse to reinforce your negative judgement of yourself, creating more fear for action. Instead, chances are taken from the heart not the head and chances actually are the actions you seek to make your dreams & plans come true. Chances you take actually reveal results quicker and allow for adjustments leading to the right path faster than any long term thinking.  Note that I said long term thinking, not planning which is different.

Long term thinking is taking a long time to analyze an action, therefore delaying action, which allows only for hindsight. Hindsight actually reveals your fear of making a mistake, but don't beat yourself up for you will only reinforce that fear, rather, give yourself credit for noticing it. Then, remember that, noticing something, or awareness, is the first step for action or change. Embrace it, accept it and make taking a chance possible because change can't happen while fearing a mistake.
