Window dressing for an unsexy idea

The truth behind commitment

Talent and networking and timing and resourcefulness are crucial components to success.

But make no mistake, it is the strength of your commitment that will govern the speed and potency with which you advance your goals.

If you’re a person who’s profoundly and absurdly committed, somebody who’s willing to do absolutely whatever it takes to get what you want, you’re going to succeed.

What’s amazing is, every year there are thousands of new books and articles published about people who achieve remarkable things. But no matter what angle the writer takes, the featured individual almost always attributes their success to some permutation of commitment. They may call it discipline or hard work or perseverance or passion, but those words are just window dressings for the unsexy idea of commitment.

In fact, I have a new book out that’s aptly titled, When In Doubt, Commit. Because the difference is hunger. The difference is who wants it more. We are always creating exactly what we are most committed to. Life is constantly testing our level of commitment. And if we can’t sustain one hundred percent commitment, either we’re trying to do too much or we shouldn’t be doing it at all.

How are you going to live today in order to create the tomorrow you’re committed to?
