The commitment that you give brings you closer to the results. Let me tell you why.
As defined by Merriam-Webster, commitment is an agreement or pledge to do something in the future.
If you want to do something in the future, you need to take this pledge to find the route to how you will do it. Now when you take this pledge, you commit to yourself. Once you do so, you see the way.
“There’s always a way – if you’re committed.”
Right now, you have seen the way. It’s the way that gives you results. And the result is the product of what actions you take to reach your goals or plans. But who will take action? It’s you who will take action. Because you are responsible for your life, no one can take action for you.
Once you commit, you force yourself to take action. It does not matter what and whom you pledge. Which is why you inch closer to the results you want.
Essential parts of commitment
The first step that helps you to do so is how you involve yourself with your targets. Then come how much you are disciplined and how much you work hard. These two qualities of yours decide how quickly you reach them.
Simply put, your commitment results from your involvement, your discipline, and your hard work.
Unless you involve yourself with your objective, you can not commit to achieving it. You can read here how your involvement helps in your success.
Let’s discuss discipline now. It’s is your ability to control yourself in a difficult situation. You may call it self-control. How does it help you? It allows you to stay committed in the face of setbacks. In other words, it keeps you on the right track all the time. So you keep on moving ahead.
Now comes hard work. What does it mean to you? It means a great deal of effort on your part. So it’s your relentless effort. How you work hard is how you act for results. You can read here how hard work helps you to succeed.
How to stay more committed
The commitment you make turns your dream into reality. Once you achieve some target, no matter how small it may be, reward yourself. When you do so, you stay more committed. Then you don’t focus on excuses but results.
I must stop here with this beautiful quote.
“To make positive change requires lasting commitment, lasting commitment requires measurable targets, measurable targets require detailed action plans, detailed action plans require a goal you desire, desire requires a positive attitude to change your life, and the option to change your life requires WORK.”
