Fear of Tomorrow
The worst mistakes of your life are done when you are afraid. Never allow fear to be the motivating factor on whatever project you are embarking on. The Exchange is a bad place to be motivated by fear. The fear of losing money has kept so many people from becoming wealthy via the exchange. They do not understand how it operates and at the same time do not bother learning about it, and so they happily put a good chunk of their earnings in saving accounts or fixed deposits.
The second level of fear is in those who invest but cannot stomach seeing a stock they bought going below the purchase value. To them they are losing money, no matter what the reason is. The stock market is operated by principles. Things make the prices go up and down. When you seek to know the “whys”, you will deliver yourself from this level of fear.

Repositioning Your Business
From small kiosks to conglomerates and corporations, the range of disparate businesses that make up the global economy is almost mind-boggling.
Yet, for all of their diversity, businesses of every size, shape, and location have one vital thing in common: the need to make profit, to grow or to so bluntly put it, ‘make money’.
If you're not generating cash, covering expenses, and providing a financial return to banks or investors, you're not likely to be in business for long. When your business can't achieve these things, you may be failing to execute and would need to be repositioned.
