That time I spent 100k (before telling Derek)
If you’re married or in a long-term partnership, I’m guessing you are going to be very interested in this week’s video. (And even if you aren’t, there are important lessons in it for you about making big decisions…)
One of things I know to be difficult is when you feel like you don’t have the support of your spouse or partner (or anyone that matters to you in your life) to make the big decisions that you know will move your business forward.
In this clip, Derek and I reenact the time I made a huuuuuuuge investment in myself before telling him. This is us very authentically sharing how he responded.
In this week’s video, you get a sneak peek into a moment that changed everything for us… Just a heads up, there is a touch of profanity, so if there are kids around, distract them for 5 minutes, OK? 😉
Watch the video now:
Here’s the deal.
An uncertainty you feel inside will get reflected back to you on the outside.
Whether it’s from your spouse or in your results, the level of CERTAINTY that you embody within yourself will be directly reflected back to you externally.
It’s the “kinda sortas” that will get you every time. If you make a decision and you “kinda sorta” think you’ll get results, then I can already tell you what the outcome of that decision will be…
…probably not the outcome you want.
It is the CONVICTION and COMMITMENT to follow through on your decision with purpose that yields the results.
My conviction is why Derek supported the big decision I’d made in the video (well, also that he’s an amazing husband), and my conviction is also why that decision yielded the 10x return that it did.
Making fast decisions quickly is often touted as a criteria for being successful in business and in life. But whether it’s gaining the support of a resistant spouse or creating a return on an investment you are making in yourself…it’s actually embracing your decision fully and with conviction that makes the difference.
Go be decisive. It will change everything.
P.S. Oh, and DO THE WORK. Whether it’s a $500 investment that you’re making to grow your business or a $100,000 investment, the money isn’t the magic pill. The confidence that you get as you follow through with your commitment is the actual magic.
