Getting COMMITTED to the Something
The Priority Project’s Six FACETS of Achievement workbook is about realizing your potential. It’s about personal achievement and what really creates success in our lives.
The third of the FACETS, the C, represents Commitment.
There is one simple rule you and I should have learned at a very young age……..
“Success favors the prepared.”
Preparation comes through clarity and is often defined as goal setting.
Experience shows that it’s wise to set goals around 5 areas of our lives.
1. Personal – volunteering, church, community, giving, relaxing, learning, improving
2. Family/Friends – social interaction, building relationships
3. Business/Professional – career advancement, business growth, leadership
4. Financial – security, recreational funds, wealth accumulation, retirement
5. Mission – business start-up, public office, career change, lifestyle change, finding our “WHY”
Goals become achievable when we believe they are possible, and just by changing your attitude, God or the Universe will send you signs that direct you toward your goal.
But………you have to do be committed to the process and the preparation.
Don Greeson says it this way: “There are two ways to reach the top of an oak tree. You can grab a limb and start climbing, or you can sit on an acorn and wait.”
If you’ve ever heard me speak or teach, you may have heard me say or you’ve seen on a power point slide either or both of these simple but true statements:
“What you focus on expands” and “Lead with a passionate plan and success will follow”.
Commitment is about setting your course and sticking with it.
We do that by clarifying what’s most important……..our priorities.
Why not get committed to something new today…………..right now………make it a priority!
You and the world that surrounds you will be the better for it.
