Hi Lisa

Good question, 'what would you do if you could not fail'

First a little background on me, married (happily for past 10 years) have had my own global company for 8 of those years with my wife (yes, working and living together) with the company going great but the boredom becoming ridiculous so have been looking for a new challenge for about a year - finally, finally found one that we believe will work - which is such a relief!

First thought - bet on long shot with everything I have! :)
Second thought - Already bought into the new company and would get that working well (after all it cant fail - right?)
Then would get hold of the best car I could find and take the entire family on the road trip of a lifetime.
Finally - I would get my animal sanctuary going and ask the local government for help (again - with this mandate it cant fail :D )

Take care and thanks for a question that made me think!

Regards

Simon

Just a guess but if he didn't the the singular animal must have been pretty ticked off and with good reason, imagine if there was one male animal staying to watch the end of the game as the floods hit - wouldn't that be typical?

Typical is sort of related to assume. It can mean it makes a ass of u and me. LOL

Never underestimate the power of assumptions - often they are the beginning of a thought process while in the core state (before they become reality) beware to keep assumptions private but always follow them to find out how right you are.
Without assumptions new thoughts are restrained

I never assume. Assume to me is a guess to exactly what it appears to be at that time by the environment i am in, around, or observeing. Being Street Smart is based on years of experiance in differant areas and with differant people. Psycology is far more better than assume.

We all assume - be it that your car will start, the post will come, the wind will blow, we all need to assume.

In selling it takes far more than phsycology or assumptions - you are right when you say about being street smart taking many years - it has taken me 28 years of sales to understand that there are many many tools needed and never just one or two but equally to assume that one or more of them are useless would not be hlepful

God made the heaven and earth and all the animals. You think God assumed everything then created everything?

God is infinite and Einstien said everything revelant.
Have a good one. Im outta here.

Of course he did ( assuming that he exists), He had to have the thought first, the idea of ...
"mmmmmm, I wonder if some animals might be fun? Ok , poof, now we have animals. mmmmm, I wonder if having some other type of animal to get eaten by those animals would be fun? Ok, poof, now I think I will call it MAN."

and then GOD said "Hey, watch this, hold my beer,
Here kitty, kitty, I brought you a treat to play with, I call ilt MAN"
