If you truly believe in something, show it. It is not enough to just say it. But show it. Be willing to have skin in the game. Put your money, energy and time where your mouth is. When you do this, you are giving yourself less reasons to not go through with it. On the other hand, you also build trust and confidence in yourself because in a way, you ‘got something to lose’. While it might logically seem that the bigger the ‘push’ is, the harder you would be putting in the work, it might not always be true. So do not go and dig a hole for yourself. Be smart about it.
