"Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained"...........



Risks must be taken in order to achieve anything significant or meaningful: if you donít take a risk, you wonít get a reward


Sidebar: The saying dates back to Chaucer (c. 1374) and is similar to the late fourteenth century French proverb: Qui onques rien n'enprist riens n'achieva (He who never undertook anything never achieved anything)

"Shoes On The Other Foot"..................



Literally wearing the right shoe on the left foot would be quite uncomfortable, and this notion is implied in this idiom, which suggests that changing places is not equally beneficial to both parties. The roles (of two or more people) have been reversed, especially roles that were the opposite of each other.

" Don't Stumble Over Something Behind You".........


It's time to focus on the present and not the past or past mistakes. It's time to stop dwelling in a pit of despair, moaning over squandered time and lost opportunity. It's time to release the burden of the past and seize today's opportunity.
