"The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action." - Confucius

Smart, you can't exactly promise anything completely safely before something actually happens. It is the best option, as just about... everything doesn't turn out (exactly) the way you pictured it. And then afterwards you can say - or reflect (yes that's a better word) on your actions and improve. There's simply better flow, if you know what I mean - watch the video then comment, not the other way around, it's the same except the video is you. Also, maybe it's just me, but it calms you down when you say that to yourself before doing something nerve-wracking.

Why do I bring this up? I had briefly seen this quote yesterday and didn't think much of it until I suddenly felt really nervous (like the first day of high school over again). Why? Because I had an oral presentation, except I hadn't felt really that nervous before - I think I know why - I was over thinking. I know (I don't like using these two words because it seems to block out any new information on the topic, and we use it out of stubbornness...) that everything's gonna be okay, in it's own unique ways, therefore overthinking really isn't necessary. Well, yes, it's necessary when you haven't done anything, because learning things the hard way is one very effective way to pin something to your mind... but overdoing anything simply causes extra stress (or the similar).

So of course, I did it, and I'm all good as I said. When I sat down I had said what some would say before they get up - I have this to do... or even "I'm gonna fail" (I didn't say that, but I noticed that when me, and some other people said that... it started to reflect in their actions, so please I recommend not to do so). The lesson here is to find a suitable way for yourself to cope with our surroundings, for it's not the circumstance's fault, it's our perception and actions! And goodnight!
