Play your cards right

If you play your cards right, it means you do the right thing and become successful. People often use this phrase to offer advice and encouragement, saying that 'if you play your cards right', something good could happen.

Examples:

If you play your cards right, he might ask you to marry him!

John, if you play your cards right, you could become the new manager.

Take note

To lay (or put) your cards on the table is to be very open and honest about your thoughts, feelings or intentions.

Example:

I think it's time to lay your cards on the table. Tell me honestly why you don't like my new boyfriend.
