The hardest part about picking yourself is it forces you to take responsibility for your own decisions. When you are working the plan that’s been handed to you, it doesn’t feel like it’s your fault when things don’t work out. After all, you were just doing what you were told.
But when it’s all you, there is no one to blame. It was your decision. Your path. Your actions.
Here is the great part though. You also get all of the satisfaction when you are right.
