“Fortune favours the brave,” is a hoary old nut.
It means that the more risks you take, the more likely you are to get lucky.
It also means that whatever you fear is where your fortune lies.
To be brave means to overcome fears.
The best form of defence is attack.
When in doubt, move forwards.
Be bold. Do the audacious.
Confront things head on.
Get out there.
Fortune favours the brave.
