Find absolute power in Commitment and reach your goals

You need commitment! #simple

Mention commitment in a sentence, and you’ll have most guys and girls thinking of relationships and marriages.

But that’s not what we are going to do today. We are going to discuss how commitment can change your life.

I chose ‘commitment,’ and it turned my life around. I committed to a noble cause, the cause of removing all disempowering and toxic habits from my life.

It hasn’t been that long, but I noticed how much cutting myself from these habits has empowered me.

In the beginning, these commitments seemed hard. So naturally, I looked for support and joined some online groups. I found that we were all in this together and I had come a long way to give up now.

Don’t break

I have often read people saying that if you fail once, don’t stop, keep trying.

But think of this way: What if I follow a no-carb diet but slip and eat a cheeseburger on the 11th day? A guilty me would go back to the no-carb diet post the slip but what if I slip again?

You can’t take a break from your commitments on weekends or every 10 days. There are no vacations from commitments.

Slipping, following the routine, slipping again, back to the routine; no that doesn’t work. What do you think this vicious and perpetual cycle of slipping and routine will do?

Keep you from reaching your goals.

You or I don’t have to be so hard on ourselves because we slipped. But we can’t move over and over again.

Nor should we accept these little failures and motivate ourselves to move past them. No, don’t hold on to them but commit to never fail like that.

The key is to accept commitment wholeheartedly and never cave into the temptations.

Say no to almost  

No one likes scoring the second position. So, why accept the almost everything.

Would you eat an almost cooked steak? Then why accept almost successful?

Commitment is scary. But the lack of commitment is what’s keeping you and me from getting where we want to be.

You must be strong, and you will find absolute power in commitment.

 

No Commitment = Failure!

You need devotion. You need commitment.

If you were to type ‘how to achieve success’ into Google, you’d gain thousands of opinions from thousands of people within minutes. However, there’s only one real way you can open the door to success, and that’s by committing to the cause. If you aren’t committed, you’ll be striving to reach something you don’t actually want and your chances of achieving success will fall to almost nothing.

Passion v Commitment – Steph Curry is passionate about basketball, and J.K. Rowling is passionate about writing. As far as enjoying yourself goes, passion is a great way to get started, but you won’t be able to push yourself to the next level if you don’t have commitment. Why? Because passion can’t pull you through those dreaded tasks that offer no fun at all.

As soon as the passion runs dry and there’s one too many hard days, this is where the majority give up hope of ever achieving their dreams. Although the passion is still there deep within, they can’t get those unpleasant tasks done to jump over the hurdle.

If you want to take the next step and ensure you can keep progressing through the hard times, commitment will always be the most important factor. If you work as a waiter/waitress in a restaurant, you might hate the job, but you can also be committed to saving enough money to go on holiday or start your own business venture. Sure, passion would allow you to do well but it wouldn’t get you through those long, hard days working long shifts and this is the main difference.

Promoted from ‘Knowledgeable’ to ‘Expert’ – In life, there are various topics we seem to take an interest in whether it’s sport, cameras, documentaries, mountains, playing an instrument, or anything else along these lines. Whenever we have this interest, we build up a foundation of knowledge required to talk about the sport, play the instrument, take high-quality photos, etc. However, there’s one factor preventing us from becoming an expert on the topic; commitment.

Without commitment, there’s no desire to continue learning and become the best of the best. When you commit, those tough days suddenly seem easier. If we use the instrument as an example, commitment will see you continue even when the fun ends and even when everything seems impossible. Over time, you’ll see real improvements, and you can become an expert on the topic. Since we know that experience is the key to improving at something, the commitment to gain experience when the tough gets going is the best way to keep progressing.

Commitment is Within Every Successful Person – Whether it’s somebody at the top of your field or any other professional at the top of their game, you’ll find commitment in every single one of them. With businessmen and women, they’re committed to becoming the strongest in their field. With sports players, they’re committed to training every day and being able to play the sport professionally. With writers, they’re committed to writing even when the tough days come around. As soon as the commitment had been made, the passion became more than just a hobby for these people and they promised themselves success.

If you want to succeed this year, take this simple first step and commit to your cause. Whether it’s your career or perhaps even a relationship, commit to reaching your goals, and you’ll have the motivation to get through the tricky days (and weeks, months, and years)!
