Everything’s set for the new year, the new decade, again we’ll set some goals, everyone will; however, slowly we will slip back to our old habits. To be honest, we all are haunted by our excuses and ‘ifs, buts, etc.’ and they’re actually costing us countless opportunities for growth and prosperity and they don’t let us do things that are unique on our journey here.
Let’s just put aside fame and recognition aside for a while and let me ask you one simple question. What would you do if you knew you would not fail? What is that one thing you would like to achieve? If you have an answer, what would it take to achieve it?
Commitment is the answer. Committing endless nights to growth and practice because championships are not won in the arena, they are won in the thousands of hours in the training room and practicing when everyone else is sleeping.
Sounds cliché, isn’t it? Well, it is these little things that we forget often in our life and that is true as well.
But, anyway, with this decade ending what would you ‘wish’ for in the next year and the next decade? I’ll suggest, don’t just wish, commit, commit to being a better person, commit to personal growth and prosperity.
People ask you what you want to be and you say, “I want to be an/a …” Whatever it is that you want to be ‘are you really committed?’ Or are you just [sort of] committed?
Or are you willing to find “How to stay committed?” Let’s find the answer.
Don’t walk into things with your eyes half-opened.
Are you taking this journey to stop halfway? If no, then stop and plan. Make sure you’ve got the resources and everything you need ready with you, there’s no point to get to the halfway and quit. You don’t just need to get involved, you need to ‘commit.’
Don’t expect to excel at everything at one time, you’re only a human. Keep your focus on one thing, one area and put all your energy into it because if you plant many seeds you don’t have as much water for one seed, so focus on one thing and watch it flourish.
Win or someone else will.
Harsh reality alert, yes, if you don’t work on yourself, if you don’t commit to growth, if you don’t make it work for you there’s always someone who will be working harder than you. In such a competitive era, don’t expect to outwork your competition by binge-watching or by being someone who is crying over lost friendships or cherishing the shine of living in your own materialistic world.
If you’re not working on yourself daily, you’re not living. Do you know what is important?
- Living a life of purpose is important.
- Facing failure is important.
- Getting back up from a defeat is important.
Out of everything, having the right mindset is most important, it is important that you realize that acquiring the right knowledge will go a long way and don’t think ‘acquiring’ is just as same as learning and reading a lot of books, acquiring means that you use what you have learned and read.
Let’s not rule out the possibility of running into problems. Your obsession will play a crucial role here. First of all, how obsessed are you with what you’re committed to?
If you will be obsessed with what you’re doing, you should also get obsessed with finding solutions to your problems. It’s important that you learn along the way, that is why we say ‘grow through it.’ Keep solving your problems, one at a time and once you will reach the top, you will know what it takes to get there and when you will be there, you will pull someone up with you.
Now or never.
I will say we’re the luckiest generation with all the technology, all the information, education floating around us in front of your eyes, just a click away, so why not make the most of it? Why not commit to something bigger than us?
Fear of failure is inevitable; however, make it work for you. Fight it, take the pain, ignite it and use it to your advantage.
Do you like quotes? Even if you don’t, you will fall in love with this one.
“To know what you want, to understand why you’re doing it, to dedicate every breath in your body… If you feel you have something to give, if you feel that your particular talent is worth developing, is worth caring for, then there’s nothing you can’t achieve. You are going to grow up with your colleagues. You’re going to watch them have success and watch them have a failure, and watch how they deal with it. They can be as much a teacher to you as anybody here or anyone that’s privileged enough to come here and speak to you.” Kevin Spacey
So, in the end, I would like to say that being committed can literally change your life, when you set some goals there’s no looking back just that one goal in your mind and the finish line always in-sight will give your life a purpose to live for.
