Extraordinary Insights: "Do not worry about the outcomes and only think about the thing you want to do. It’s easy to think about something you want to achieve and then think about all the barriers in your way. If you do that, it may be likely that you won't try to do any of these things because the barriers seem so huge. But, in essence, you can accomplish anything you want. You can overcome any barrier. Think about the goal and as soon as you reach the barrier, understand what you need to do to solve it and don't pile up too many on top of one another."
