What’s the number one fear of most people when it comes to starting their own business? Most people are afraid of failure. As a result, many don’t even try, which essentially guarantees they’ll fail.

That’s why scientists believe cat droppings can help. The toxoplasma gondii parasite found in cat droppings can make mice unafraid of cats, making it easier for cats to catch them. Now researchers haveĀ found that people who have been infected with the toxoplasma gondii parasite are more likely to major in business and to have started their own businesses than non-infected people.

So if you want to overcome your fear of failure, clean your cat’s litter box and get infected. It might be the best thing you’ve ever done.
