A dear old friend of mine who is a professional upholstery cleaner gave me some very valuable advice that I wish to share with you.
Commitment is one thing that most people are scared of due to the responsibility that comes with it. It’s a promise that one has to make that will drive you without looking back. The goals that you have must be driven by commitment if you are to achieve them. You give your time, effort, mind and body totally in order to reach your goals. Whether it is about the things you want to achieve in life or you want to do to others, commitment is non-negotiable.
· Be Committed
Without commitment, you cannot achieve your goals. It’s the paying attention to small details and being focused that will see you get a step further. This is essential because, when you miss out on small details, you will be dragging your achievements. Give the process the seriousness that it deserves and you will not be disappointed.
· Be Faithful
It’s crucial that you are faithful to the process of achieving your goals. You have already laid out the steps that you must make to achieve your goals. This defines how the end result will be and without being faithful to it, you will be facing challenges.
· Have Smaller Goals
Achieving goals is always a process. It takes time even with commitment. However, it’s important to focus on small goals and appreciate smaller victories along the way. This is what brings you closer to achieving your goals. With small victories, it motivates you to do more and you know that anything is achievable as long as you stay committed.
· Set Realistic Goals
There is no way you will achieve unrealistic goals. The ones that you set must be achievable. For example, if you are in business and you want to increase your sales by about 500%, you cannot do this in a month. It has to be spread out to several months. It’s better to set a productivity increase of about 5% in a month and work towards increasing that on a monthly basis. This moves you closer to the big goal without feeling pressured. Basically, whichever goals you want to set, they must be achievable.
When you want to succeed in something, you must set realistic goals. You have to be faithful to the process, be committed and focus on smaller achievements. Your thoughts must be into it same as your effort. When you are totally committed and you do not violate any values, you will be closer to achieving your dreams.
