It’s scary to start the business. Or spend money to grow it. What if it doesn’t work? You’re out all that money, all that time, your ego gets bruised.
Nobody wants that. So, more often than not, people do nothing.
Safer that way, right? On the surface, yes. But when you really think about it, isn’t there a “cost” associated with doing nothing?
Like, if not money, happiness? Personal fulfillment? Never truly knowing if you could’ve pulled it off?
I mean, maybe you do go on to make millions of dollars.
And prove all your haters wrong.
And provide for your family.
And experience new things.
Give to charity.
Sure, the odds are against you. And you probably will fail. But if you’re not content with your life, and nothing changes, you’re still failing… aren’t you?
My point is: even doing nothing costs something.
