I have had the opportunity throughout my life to work with some amazingly successful people, from the athletic world to the business world, from Olympic Gold Medalists to CEO’s and one of the principal ingredients of success is commitment and singleness of purpose, whatever they were doing. It takes commitment for winning to be an all the time thing. It takes commitment to do things right all the time. Total commitment means 100% effort, 100% of the time, no idling, no wasting time, no giving up when things get tough. Are you really committed to your success?
If you look at successful people in any field, you’ll find they’re not necessarily the best and the brightest, the fastest and the strongest. You’ll find they’re the ones with the most commitment.
There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when its convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.
The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.
Losers make promises they often break. Winners make commitments they always keep.
Call to Action
Commit to 21 Days in a Row to do something for you.
Research shows us that it takes at least 21 consecutive days to make something a habit. What can you commit to do for you, for the next 21 days? Perhaps it is getting up 30 minutes earlier each day and exercising, or meditating, or working on that project you always wanted to do. Whatever it is, decide and commit to 21 days in a row. Go and schedule it in your diary! Small daily improvements always lead to exceptional results over time.
When you are committed, you stay really focused. You show up all the time. When times are tough, you find another way; you set clear goals and know that little failures are just stepping stones to success. You never give in. And you know you will achieve success.
Wishing you quintessential success
