Do you feel like studying, working hard, or cutting your expenses to save money? Most people don’t. Yet, these steps are needed for success, aren’t they? Imagine if we stopped doing everything we didn’t feel like doing. Such behavior would bring our success and personal development to a screeching halt. Fortunately, most of us do not neglect what is important EVERY time we don’t feel like doing it.
But many do SOME of the time – oh boy Wayne you need to pay attention to your own advice here. Yes, they do it some of the time, again and again. Like air slowly leaking from an automobile tire, those wasted moments add up and can later lead to serious consequences. Isn’t it silly to neglect important matters merely because we don’t feel like taking the necessary steps?
How can we stop being controlled by our feelings and start running our lives rationally? The secret lies in commitment. “There’s a difference between interest and commitment,” says Art Turock, “When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”
What is commitment? It is simply the resolve to do whatever it takes to reach one’s goal. It is wholehearted dedication to a project. Commitment is an either / or situation. That is, one is either committed or not committed. One can no more be partly committed than one can be partly pregnant. Pastor Robert Moorehead eloquently describes what it is like to be committed, “My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate… at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in a maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, or slow up.” WOW!!!
