You Can’t Dabble Your Way To Success: The Power Of Going All In

Please Share

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Every child has been asked that question. A lot.

The answer seems easy when we’re small. A fireman. A football player. A teacher. A nurse.

By the time we leave elementary school our likely answer is, “I don’t know!”

I marvel with envy those people who say, “I’ve ALWAYS wanted to be _________.” How cool would it be to have always known what you wanted to be, what you wanted to do?

I wasn’t that lucky. Or astute.

I’ve had to figure it all out on the fly. It is hard work. Very hard work. You know, right?

And then…there’s the urge to dabble. We all do it. We do a little bit of this and a little bit of that. All in the hopes of finding success. The problem is, you can’t dabble your way to success!

Today’s show is super short, but the message is among the most powerful lessons I’ve learned. I know it’s true. I believe it. But, that doesn’t mean it’s easy to do it.
