the pep talk: is lack of commitment holding you back?


I was talking to a new friend this week about his professional journey making a drastic mid-career change. In the process of making the change, there was one missing piece that held him back.

That missing piece was commitment. He said, “when I committed to it, everything started falling into place.”

I wonder how many of the issues we face in business result from our lack of commitment to our own ideas. We don’t fully commit to our products, our message, or our business’s direction because we are afraid we might fail. But lack of commitment doesn’t protect us from failure, it assures it.

What would it look like for you to fully commit this week?

All my best,
