To What Are You Committed?

Our greatest leaders and the most successful business people all share common belief systems – determination, strength of purpose and commitment.

Being committed to yourself, your goals, your business and your relationships is what raises you above the mediocre, because people who honor their commitments stand out in the crowd.

By honoring your commitments, you keep your promises and stay true to your word. Honoring your commitments also means that you promise to see them through to the very end, come what may.

Not honoring your commitment destroys your credibility, dependability and trustworthiness.

Success doesn’t just happen. Success occurs when determination, a desire to succeed, strength of purpose and a commitment to achieve your goals are present.

Successful people commit to achieving better than their best. For them, commitment becomes an instinctual habit they practice every day.

Human beings are amazingly complex creatures, so the coming together of two complex creatures in an equally complex relationship can be fraught with mishaps, misunderstandings, doubt, deceipt, despair…the list goes on and on.

In its most simplistic terms, committing to a relationship is no different from committing to a long term goal. To stay committed, you need to keep your focus on the vision and understand that the path to attain that vision may meander, twist, turn, convolute and lead you down a number of dead ends.

What it takes is a shared desire to achieve the same vision and determination to succeed no matter what obstacles are placed in your path.

    • There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. Thanks for such the great post.

    • Great commentary. My grandfather drilled the following into my head as a youth, and I have never forgotten his teachings.

      “Do what you say you will do.”

      As I have lived these 62 years, I find very few people that live up to what my grandfather taught me. Although I sometimes fall short, I live by this simple rule, and it helps me be a better person.

    • I agree with you that people who honor their commitments stand out in the crowd. We actually different commitments in life but we have the same thing we want in life and that is “SUCCESS”.
