A word from ThePleasantDream

Whether your rattlesnake dreams bring good news or bad ones, remember panicking isn’t a choice… just as you deal with the snake in reality.

If you get the word of impending danger, prepare yourself to deal with it. In this world where the fittest survive, a calm mind and strategic decisions are a necessity.

Make sure you always double-check your decisions, even if you get positive predictions… because people are more prone to mistakes out of overconfidence.

Don’t let the predictions sway your dedication negatively and you’ll reach the pinnacle soon.
