Commitment!

“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavour.” – Vince Lombardi
There’s a huge difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results. When you are committed to doing something only DEATH can stop you from doing it.
Total commitment is the only common denominator among all successful men and woman. Men and women of substance have proven to the world over and over again that human life cannot be catalogued, that it is boundless and limitless. So, without commitment, you cannot have any depth in anything, whether it’s a relationship, a business or a hobby. I therefore, can safely say that a man was not born just to do a job but to live his purpose because living his purpose will make him a living. Joshua Harris said, “When God knows you are ready for the responsibility of commitment, He’ll reveal the right person under the right circumstances.” Commitment is staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.
Commitment comes after you have identified that one thing that you will do to serve the world, yes, to make the world a better place than you found it. The main focus should be identifying that one thing because without it, your life will be empty, you will follow the crowd instead. So commitment is about you.
Life can be lived on two levels, Interest or Commitment. At an interest level, it’s a small life, you just do what is convenient to you and to please others, it’s a life of touch and go and doing things according to how you feel on the day. Commitment on the other hand is about living a big and meaningful life, is about doing what you have to do irrespective of how you feel in the moment. It’s about being prepared to lay down your life for something if need be. It’s about doing whatever it takes and that’s COMMITMENT. So, how are you living your life? Are you just INTERESTED or are you FULLY COMMITTED to it? Check YOUR RESULTS and the answer will be right there!!
