Question

1 Answer/Comment
"Equity" may generally be defined as the correction of a defect or error in the law. This idea is apparently of ancient origin, tracing back at least as far as Aristotle, who defined equity as an exception to the rule where the lawgiver's pronouncement is defective and erroneous. There are a number of reasons why a law may be deemed "defective" or "erroneous."

1 Answer/Comment
The law of probability is that the more possibilities and options you include, the lower the chances will be for a particular outcome to happen. The secret of success is focus, concentration, having a sense of certainty and clarity, and making a firm decision. Success is about narrowing down a field of possibilities in order to manifest a single choice.
