“Once you have commitment, you need the discipline and hard work to get you there.”

-Haile Gebrselassie

That quote is absolutely correct.

It’s not just about commitment, that won’t get you very far.

Once you have commitment, then you need hard work and discipline in order to succeed.

Let’s start with that dedication.

A commitment should be treated as a binding contract with yourself.

However, many of us break our commitments.

We commit to people, banks, work, pets, ourselves…

A commitment is something that you have no doubts about.

Something you give 100% of your whole self to.

Commitment is a fulfilling endeavor that when followed through gives an immense sense of accomplishment.

Think about something you have committed to, followed through with to the end, and how you felt at the end knowing that you didn’t break it along the way.

Weight loss, getting a formal education, going for the big contract and landing it…

Sometimes, commitment can be confused with staying with something long after you should.

Like a dead end job or a loveless marriage.

If you have any of this in your life, let’s look at it for the moment.

Ask yourself why you are still in something that you have doubts about or don’t believe in.

Or worse yet, that you give less than all of you to.

People pick up on this subtle behavior.

To stay committed to something, you have to put effort in and periodically change up what you are doing to keep it alive and fresh.

You start with commitment in many situations.

Along your journey, you may decide that the endeavor is not fulfilling like it once was or that it needs freshening up.

It is okay to make changes where you see fit.

Especially if you are no longer giving your all and your heart is no longer in it.

Commitment cannot stand alone.

You will need discipline and hard work in order to completely follow through with your commitment.

Let’s take a look at your commitments and see where we can make improvements or determine which things might need freshening up, etc.
