Commitment is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause or an activity.
Without commitment nothing good will happen. Time and commitment go hand-in-hand. Commitment is proactive, it doesn’t wait for the feelings to come, but it takes action now!
To be committed you must :
1. Clarify your goals.
If you’re not clear on what you want , then you will allow other activities that do not concern your commitments to interfere with doing what you need to do. So action step one is to set and clarify your goals by writing them down.
2. Identity the effective steps
There are steps in every activity whether you like it or not. There are steps in every product. To bake a cake there are certain ingredients needed, and certain things you need to do. In reaching your goal there are certain ingredients, and things you need to do in order to see it happen. Write down these steps, and improve your time in doing them properly.
3. Commit your steps to memory.
Repetition, repetition, repetition. This is where most people fail. They don’t follow up. They don’t repeat themselves for fear of being uncool. So they are broke – don’t be like them. Commit your steps to memory ,and improve your time in doing them properly.
4. Clear your schedule
Your day consist of 24hrs. Block out time to run your steps and activity properly. Make a pattern for you week , and run the routine without fear.
5. Pray & Make the sacrifice
Since you can’t do everything, or have everything now…. some things will suffer. You may lose friends, family, money, sleep, and even your life so be careful to commit only to things that are in line with your purpose. Understand the sacrifice you are about to make. Starving artist are called that because they sacrifice their time to eat in order to create art that will change people’s hearts. You need prayer to follow through with your commitments, because you will suffer in some physical aspect.
