Give your dreams a shot

What if?

Probably the most dangerous sentence formed in the English language. This sentence is what I like to call "a dream stealer".

Whenever there's an uncommon or daunting task in front of us, we tend to put it off by thinking what if our efforts go in vain.

Most of the times, doing anything new and challenging requires you to take a leap of faith. You got to stop thinking about what could go wrong and start thinking about all the things that could go right instead.

The more skeptical you be regarding a plan, the more are the chances that you'll never actually execute it.

A positive attitude can really make dreams come true - it did for me.
— David Bailey

I remember many times where I've taken the leap of faith into the unknown.

Most of the projects that I've worked on started because I gave the ideas a shot. In fact, one of my apps went on to be featured by major news publications such as The Next Web and Cosmopolitan.

It would never have been possible if I had just trashed the idea thinking it might fail.

Life is all about experimenting. We are not oracles. We can't predict the future. The best we can do is to try out our ideas and see if they work.

Your dreams deserve to have a shot to become real. Don't hold yourself back. Just do it.

You'll never know if something works out unless you actually try it.

Some things are better done manually

Multitasking is a sham
