Look, you're just never going to achieve those dreams and aspirations you have on a "let's see what happens" or "play it safe" basis. True success depends on going ALL IN.
In order to get the most out of anything in your life, whether it's a job, a spouse, children, your ideas or your business, it's necessary to maintain the view that there is no other option than 100% dedication and obsession to make it work.
This "all in" mentality leads to more creative thinking as you seek ways to exceed expectations. Looking for a safety net or an exit strategy is getting in the way of reaching your full potential. And hey, things are gonna get tough and they're gonna get rough. Are you going to give up when it gets difficult or are you going be strong, commit even more and see it though?
If you are noticing an area of your life, professional or personal where things seem to be off track, or just short of the finish line, it's time to get "all in." You've been holding back. Put all your chips on the table and get 100% committed.
This is when you start to take massive action towards accomplishing your goals and great results follow.
Get "all in" and see how opportunities come and deals start to run smoothly. Here are four ways to do it.
- Write down your goals.
- Commit to those goals - NO squirming or maybes.
- Claim 100% responsibility for the outcome, regardless of how it goes.
- Use fear to push you. Fear is a great indicator of what you SHOULD do.
Your high level of commitment will get you noticed. It separates the very successful from those who are just getting by on average.
When it comes to living the life you really want, you gotta burn the ships!
