Commitment means to be dedicated to a specific cause. To take full ownership for what you want to achieve. Without commitment, self-discipline towards goal achievement is not possible. Once you have committed yourself to something, you will do it without hesitation. But if you are not committed to the outcome, you will battle to keep going and achieve your goal. This is significant, as we need to examine our commitment towards a specific goal first—as self-discipline is not possible without having commitment first. When you feel discouraged, it is of uttermost importance to have the commitment to keep your motivation going. This is where commitment can make the difference between succeeding or not going anywhere.
Here are a few tips on commitment.
•Success starts with the right mindset. Make the decision that nothing's going to hold you back. Be positive and prevent negative thinking. Dedication is a very powerful tool, as the right mindset brings motivation.
•Be clear about your goals and the outcome you want. What do you want? How are you going to reach this goal? In which time frame should you reach it? You should be so clear you can envision every piece of detail in your mind.
•Do not focus on anything that is of lesser importance. Do not do unnecessary work, as this will steal too much time and guide you off track. Focus on what really matters and needs to be done. Be specific and outcome-orientated in all you do.
•Take ownership. Keep track of your important tasks by looking at your goals and the tasks completed on a daily basis.
•Surround yourself with positive and like-minded people.
