5 Questions to Determine Your Dedication

1. Would you invest your own money? If you are truly dedicated to your goal or dream you will be willing to spend your own money. 

2. Will you sacrifice free time? This is what we call hustle time…when you have free time what do you spend your time doing? 

3. Have told people about it? You need to tell the people closest to you that you want to pursue this dream, and then shout it from the mountaintops. 

4. Are you prepared for failure? If we could predict the finish line, we would all be billionaires. At some point you have to start and be prepared to keep going when the bumps in the road arrive.

5. Would you do this if you never got fame or fortune? When you are dedicated to a dream you are willing to pursue it knowing you may never get rich and famous.
