A lot of people wait for the right set of cards to go all in.
A lot of people wait for the right time to go all in.
Or the right situation.
Only to end up never having played a single hand.
Whenever someone asks me when will I stop doing whatever it is I do, I tell them this:
Alright, I don’t say this to my mom or dad. So don’t tell them I said this.
But it’s all about creating an environment where you can go all in. And once you create that environment you should go all chips in.
But how do you know if your hand is good enough? How do you know you’ll be able to push through tough times? How do you know if this is your time to go all in?
I guess you need to ask yourself this:
“Are you going to regret NOT going all in in future?”
“Are you going to WISH that you should have taken that offer?”
“Or said YES to that guy/girl?”
“Or changed your life with a single decision but you didn’t?”
If your answer is NO, then you should not go all in. Work and wait for better set of cards instead. Improve the environment.
But if your answer is yes, then you should take all your chips and go all in.
And never look back.
Because of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, “It might have been.”

Hi Aakash, it is a pleasure in meeting you. Thank you for reading some of my material. My writing and blogging slowed down for a bit, which is why I did not have the chance to respond the way I am accustom until now. From reading several of your pieces thus far, I am very impressed and a fan of your overall theme. For example, this piece “All in” definitely strikes a chord with me, especially in regards on my research on how to live a good life. The time we have in front of us is less with every night we sleep, so as your blog title states all we have is now and we must seize the moments. I look forward to reading more and getting to know you a little better through it.
Thanks very much for reading! I really appreciate it. I usually try to write about things that makes sense to me, so it’s more about exploration and figuring out what works for me on this blog. I also look forward to reading more stuff from you as well. Have a good rest of the day 🙂
It is nice to hear you say you write about what makes sense to you. I think that is all we can do. I use writing as a means to share what I am learning, but I do not act as though I have all the answers. Rather, I am trying to understand better … Anyhow, wishing you an inspiring and beautiful day!
