COMMIT October 14, 2019 05:00
Many people in life entertain many possibilities but not really committed to making any of them a reality. They want the best outcome, but they don’t want to do the work that is needed to achieve this. Most people won't fully commit and therefore achieve poor results and wonder why. The difference between people who achieve great success in the main areas of their lives compared to the people who don’t is the degree to how much they commit to themselves and their dreams.
Commitment is about the amount of self-belief you have in yourself, the amount of confidence you have in yourself and your ability to do things successfully. Do you believe you really deserve what it is that you really want to bring into your life?
Commitment is also about self-discipline. Commitment begins with a decision and the determination to finish, backed by discipline. Self- discipline is the thing that keeps you moving forward when times are hard and things don’t go your way. Commitment is about how much you are willing to challenge. Challenge yourself to move through the obstacles, challenge yourself to move forward, challenge your self- limiting beliefs and willingness to challenge anyone’s negative views about you.
- Commitment means you work on It whenever time permits. Its constantly in your thoughts.
- Commitment focuses on what’s important.
- Commitment constantly looks for new skills and solutions. No matter what!
If you want it bad enough, if your committed, you’ll find a way to make it happen.
How many stories or biographies about successful people have you read where the narrative involved smooth sailing or an easy path toward success? Very few I would imagine. Success requires discipline, hard work, perseverance, tenacity, will, courage and faith. With that in mind, here are some guidelines for persevering with your goals — no matter what life throws at you.
Develop An Insatiable Hunger
Undoubtedly this remains the most challenging aspect of successful goal attainment. What makes some people pursue their goal with vehement desire while others give up when the going gets tough?
Successful people are unrelenting toward the pursuit of their goal. Sure they experience setbacks and failures like everyone else. What sets them apart is the ability to get back on track and learn from their mistakes immediately. It’s the ability to do this time and time again until they gain the prize that sets them apart.
Successful people believe in themselves. They’ve developed an inner resolve — an inner dialogue that continually feeds them with successful images, thoughts and beliefs. These inner dialogues have the power to cancel out any external misgivings that arise in the pursuit of their goal.
I invite you to find your inner conviction. Discover the reason for pursuing your goal. Why do you want it? Who will you become once you’ve attained it? What will life look like when you’ve reached your goal?
Successful people are adaptable. They know what they want. They’re open and receptive to allowing life to show them the HOWS.
When you develop an undying commitment to achieve a goal, roadblocks and failures are merely speed humps instead of stop signs.
Stay Committed in the pursuit of your dreams. Stay DISSIDENT!!
