Are you committed to succeeding?
March 13, 2019 - Are you committed to succeeding? How steadfast are you in making headway in what you hope to achieve? How consistently are you taking action? How focused are you in determining what you need to do next, and then after that, and then after that?
How unshakable are you when things don’t go as you had planned? Do you veer off-course? Do you become disengaged for a while? Do you belabor what went wrong? Or are you able to regroup, learn from it, and get right back in alignment with or shift where you believe you need to go or need to be doing?
Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to your ability to stay committed to succeeding. Are there many things distracting you and keeping you from being able to focus? If so, what are they and how can you diminish their influence? Are you feeling the pressure from “have to’s” or “shoulds” that are pulling you away from what you really want to be doing towards your goals? For every “have to” today that you succumb to doing, there will be a
“could have” tomorrow in what you wished you had done. Making a commitment to yourself is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Only then can your future success be guaranteed.
