Don’t Be A Scaredy-Cat: Full-Ass It


I keep telling you to make a commitment, take action, and follow through. Once you’re there, a word of warning: don’t half-ass it.

There’s a huge difference between failing after trying your best and failing because you half-assed something. When you don’t give your all, it’s almost — but not quite — as bad as if you didn’t start at all.

The thing is, people tend to half-ass things a lot. That way, if you fail, you can always have the excuse that you “didn’t really try”.

“I didn’t really try to lose weight.”

“I didn’t really try to stick to my budget.”

“I didn’t really try to get that promotion.”

It’s a safeguard. A defense mechanism. You want to avoid getting hurt. Because if you give it your absolute best, and you fail,  it will hurt a whole lot.

You should still give your all in everything you do. The fear of failure is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you don’t try your best, the chances of failure are much higher than if you just pushed through. Overcome that fear. After all, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Full-ass it.
