It Takes a Lot to Win

In the process of winning, you’ll often feel like you’ve lost.

It’s painful to write a book, release it, and have it go nowhere.

It’s painful to book a gig, show up, and have nobody in the audience.

It’s painful to record a video, upload it on YouTube, and have nobody watch.

It’s painful when your parents, friends, and even your own spouse don’t understand your desire to create something and the sacrifices you’re making to be successful with it.

It’s painful, but it’s the way things work — at least for a while. Then you start to get better, more people get into what you’re doing, and you get the respect you’re seeking.

Why You Don’t Have a Choice

As tough as it is to win, the cost of giving up and walking away is 1000 times more.

The cost of losing is always wondering what could have been.

The cost of losing is spending your life watching others from the sidelines.

The cost of losing is being stuck at a job you can’t stand.

When you think about things this way, you really have no choice but to win.

So what’s it going to be?

We both know the answer, don’t we?
