    I do not 100% agree. You must weigh the good and the bad before making a decision. Focusing on the goods may creates an unrealistic expectation to a situation. Not to mention, it might give people false hopes that may never realize.

    I can agree to this. I get anyone can fail. Right now I committed one of the worse failures of my whole life. I can only know look what I did wrong and look how things can go better. It's a gamble I'm willing to take

    More like "stop wondering and find out, stupid". I've had to tell myself that on more than one occasion.

    Negative emotions are much stronger than positive emotions. Because it’s much more serious to possibly die than to feel a bit of joy

    When I'm debugging a problem and am waiting to find out of a potential solution worked, I'm always thinking about what the next step in the debug process is. Otherwise I will quickly get really annoyed because everyone I think I got it, it fails. Otherwise, I generally adopt this attitude in almost anything I do.

    There's a saying I use which I had learned from a guy name Brian Kight. No matter the situation, the answer is always the same: Doesn't matter, get better.

    Always focus on what could go wrong and mitigate it so that it doesn't happen. This is just common sense. Anything else is wishful thinking. People with this kind of mentality probably go ask lottery winners for financial advice. "Sell everything you own and buy thousands of lottery tickets, don't focus on what could go wrong, just what could go right!"

    That is so hard to do ... I think you should assess not only "If this works" but also "Even if it fails, does what I gain exceed what I lose ?" I'm talking about experience, or joyful things
