Don’t ever give up. Believe in yourself or no one else will. My personal saying is: ‘I’d rather die knowing that I tried to do what I love.’ Adrienne Bailon.
Speaking as a business owner for the last two years working with coaching clients one thing often overlooked is the buy in. Whether that’s to a skill or ability, relationship, task or business the percentage of your buy in will determine what you get back. Maybe you’re not used to hearing buy in , maybe you think of it as commitment, tenacity, or faithfulness. At the end of the day what you have bought into as valuable for your life takes time, energy, and resources from you. There’s a reason you’re here. There’s something you’re looking for that says this is the way. This is the path, you’re going to be alright. You are in charge of your buy in. No one else will ever buy in more than you do to your project, task, ability. I’m here to invite you into an opportunity to buy in to what you’re doing.
Picture with me for a moment the scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade with the leap of faith or view the clip here. He is standing in the cleft of a rock, he knows where he needs to go and sees no way to get there. So he takes a moment, steadies himself and buys in to the mission. or take any Olympian for example, their life reflects their buy in to the dream. They make sacrifices and live how very few will ever choose to live, and have huge payoffs. What you are willing to do when no one is watching determines How well you do when everyone is watching. being 100% committed gives you the fuel to get back up when youve fallen for the 12th, 60th, or 1200th time and try again. There are lots of examples of the Edisons, Rowlings, Sanders, Sandburgs, maybe we are waiting on you.

So start today, start somewhere, but go all in. Write the book, join a club, gain a skill, become a marine biologist, English teacher in the middle east, open that business. Don’t live life wondering if there’s something you are meant to be. Become who makes you proud. Bet on yourself, grow , change, improve. One day you will wake up a completely different person who has accomplished what today you could only dream.
