Don’t count your chickens before they hatch

Some people talk about eggs like they are chickens. “Look at this chicken, it’s going to be great,” they say… when, in fact, all they have is an egg.

Then, the egg breaks and the person must backpedal everything he has said. People ask,¬†“Why did he tell me he had a chicken when all he had was an egg?”¬†Backpedaling sucks, and it makes you look like an idiot.

It is stressful to be living one step ahead of the truth. Be honest and confident about where you are, and you will find no reason to be incongruent with reality.
