Put something at stake

Commitment is more correlated to how much we stand to lose, rather than how much we may gain.

It’s obvious that the more money we put into an investment, the more energy we give to it.

What’s interesting, though, is that a smaller investment with a huge gain may be overlooked when we have more at stake with something else, even if the potential gain isn’t as great.

If you really want something to work, put something at stake personally.
