Small bets aren’t too uncomfortable.  It’s not hard to sacrifice a chip or two when you’re hoarding the rest of the pile.  But the payoff is small, too.

When you have a larger investment, you start to pay attention.  You might feel anxious or your stomach might get tight while you wait to see what happens next.  It’s nerve-wracking, and if you lose, it hurts.  But you still get to walk away with whatever you have left.
But when you decide to go all in – when you give all that you have for the sake of one hand – it’s almost a relief.  You know for certain that you will either walk away empty-handed or win big.  There is no in-between.  No comfort cushion.  It’s all out there.  
I’m all in.  
And I think I’ve already won the prize.
