I don’t care if you live to be 100. Life is short. I have a few regrets in my life but none of them happened because I didn’t put myself out there. Any Woman that has ever been pursued by me will tell you that I don’t give up. Once I find something I want, I do not stop. It doesn’t matter if it’s a person, a new job, or a personal project. If I get put down or discouraged, I just keep coming.
This is different than perseverance. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and say I wish. This doesn’t mean I always get what I want. In fact, I rarely do.
The key is, at least I tried. I’ve been trying to get my own TV show for eight years now. I look at what’s on TV, and I think “I can do better than that” I’m trying as hard as I can and it’s not happening. At least when I get to the end of my life I’ll be able to say that I took the chance and did all I could, whether it happens or not.
I’m also the guy that will take a chance and go skydiving if ever given the option because I want to say I did. I’m fairly certain that everybody out there has something in their life that they’d like to take a chance on. They may not because they’re afraid of failure. Failure is part of life. If we never fail, we don’t learn. So whether it’s a business, a love interest, or a new flavor ice cream you’re thinking about taking a chance on, do it. I promise it will be worth it in the long run.
