Why I Believe In Putting All My Eggs In One Basket

There's an expression "Don't put all your eggs in one basket" which means don't put all your hopes in one venture. You should always have a back-up plan.

Let's say I think to myself that I would like to experience X but I'll have a back-up plan Y, just in case. What happens is the two realities (X and Y), which already exist, are both vying for my attention and I feel myself being pulled in both directions. I'll either do nothing or be confused about which path to follow. In other words, as the Bible puts it: "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." (James 1: 8)

Reminds me of a TV quiz show I was watching the other day. When the host asked a question, he would also ask the contestant how sure he was of their answers. The contestant would then give a figure in percentage form how sure he was.

I believe the whole idea of asking whether you're sure or not is to create doubt in the contestant. Then the contestant is no longer confident in himself and gets fewer answers correct. Wrong answers mean less money is paid out and the TV company wins.

I believe when I put all my eggs in one basket, in every moment I always know that I know 100% or I always know that I don't know 100%. Either way, I always know 100%.

In practical terms, when I make a decision, I stick with it 100% at that moment. If I decide to change directions, then I change directions 100%. Then I'm always 100% in my Power no matter what I'm doing.

Another way I put all my eggs in one basket is to focus all my attention on what I am passionate about so that my whole world is consumed with what I love.

Some people believe that the "devil" is responsible for the problems in the world. I beg to differ. The devil is not the problem, doubt is.

Putting all my eggs in one basket leaves no room for doubt.
