Stack The Odds In Your Favor

I once heard the remark that Tom Hanks is so successful because he only does blockbuster movies. Jokes aside, it is true successful people have the habit of stacking the cards in their favor. They select the best people on their team and decline work from difficult clients where they can't succeed. In general they avoid high risk, low reward situations and do everything they can to stack the odds in their favor. And it is not bad advice for you to play it safe either.
