Are You Committed to Your Actions?

What is Commitment?

    Commitment is: “The state or quality of being dedicated to a cause or activity”.                                  

    I strongly believe in the quote “Motivation gets you started and commitment keeps you going.”

    I come across many people in business with the ability to take their business to the next level but never do! One thing that holds many of them back is motivation and the inability to stay commitment to their ideal outcomes.

    When the going gets tough, it can be difficult to sustain the momentum to achieve great things. I get that, I have had my fair share of ‘commitment yo-yo’ in the past. I found that when I am not completely committed to a       goal, I falter and lose focus. Now, I do not leave room for excuses, however I have to accomplish that goal, I commit to it. I am far more targeted and focused, and when I start hearing my excuses I refocus.

It is so easy to make excuses when we are not committed to a goal. You may have moments of lapses but the key is to dig your heels in and refuse to allow challenges to take you off course. If you want to walk in your true actions, you must commit to the discovery, development and action process. You can’t afford to leave things halfway because you do not feel like it. This also opens the mind/door to leaving the next goal incomplete.
If you are not “fully committed” to the actions you have put in place, then you are never going to take your business to the next level.
Here are some tips to get you going:

  • Commitment is action – if you want to be committed to a goal, you must take consistent action. Commitment needs consistency, and it is through consistency that you get results.
  • Commitment is a choice – you choose what you commit to and how you commit to it. You, have to decide within yourself how important the results you want to achieved are and go out to achieve them. A coach or mentor can help you to commit and stay focused to a cause.
  • Commitment is positive – it requires a positive mindset. You cannot commit to something you feel negative about. Your words, actions and thought must align with your commitment.
  • Commitment flows – once you stay committed to a cause, others flow with you. Your staff, family and friends will fall in line with your plans when they see how committed you are to your goals.
  • Commitment is a driver – commitment drives you towards your results. Success is inevitable when you stay committed to a cause.
