It is quite important to brace yourself mentally when confronting a situation. But if you are too strained or too tense, mental fatigue might cause you to fail. This happens often. It might be a good idea, then, to adopt an easygoing attitude in which you can think, “If I fail, I’ll try again.” An easygoing mind might foster the wisdom that leads you to success.
