After a few drinks and a conversation with a friend of how we are horrible with women, I told a recent tale of moderate success. This was because I decided to go with the flow and say yes to anything unless I had a good reason to say no. This was similar to how in college I would get really drunk, and things would just happen.
The tl;dr of this rule is that you shouldn’t run into bad situations, but don’t walk away from potentially great ones either.
Be open to possibilities, and the possibilities will open up to you.
