Commitment is an extremely important topic to me. I say that, because I struggled with commitment for a long time. A while back I realized that my lack of growth and progress had everything to do with my lack of commitment. In order to grow, you need to be pushed and put in situations that make you uncomfortable. When you are put under pressure, it forces you to get focused, work through pain points, follow through, and work through your weaknesses. I could go on and on, but you definitely get the idea.
I remember the day where I understood my lack of commitment like it was yesterday. I remember getting so frustrated, because I found myself at the same exact spot over and over and I didn’t know how to change it. I finally realized that every time I felt inadequate in my abilities, pressure to perform, and insecure, I would back down. Eventually the opportunity that was given to me went away, and I was back at the same exact spot. That moment of clarity changed me forever. From that day forward, I told myself that no matter what happens I will stay committed. If I feel pressure in any given situation, I will embrace it. If I have weaknesses that are causing me to feel insecure and out of sorts, I will improve on those. I won’t shy away from the thing that makes me feel insecure. I will run towards it head on and overcome!
When you always have a Plan B as an exit strategy, it’s easy to run the other way. However, if you are committed, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.
“Learn to commit, and you will see a whole new world of opportunity out there for you to grab onto.”
