We all have the ability to make something of ourselves.

We are all unique in some way. It doesn’t matter what that is. That’s your uniqueness. It’s time to start owning it. It’s time to make a commitment to honing in on it and making yourself the best.

I heard a quote once by George Zalucki, and it went something like this, “Commitment is doing the thing you said you would do long after the mood you said it in has left you.”

So many of us commit to things in the heat of the moment. I’m going to sell this much, I’m going to make this many dials, I’m going to read this much, I’m going to set more appointments, bring in more appointments, and so on and so on and so on.

What About You?

Have you ever done that? I’m going to guess the answer is yes.

Have you ever had the “Law of Diminishing Intent” happen?

When you make a commitment to yourself, it’s time to start following through. Those commitments are supposed to be hard; they’re supposed to make you sit there and wonder what the heck you were thinking. You are supposed to work for it. It will make you stronger. It will make you better. And it will make you enjoy every little last piece of what comes of it.

That’s the joy of accomplishing something!

This is part of the training you go through daily. It’s learning to love the grind. Not walking away or shying from it. Learning to embrace it. If success were easy, everyone would be successful. It’s supposed to be hard because it’s worth working for. It’s truly not a grind if you enjoy it. That’s what it’s all about!

At first, you may feel the struggle. You may wonder what you got yourself into. You may wonder why you committed to something you weren’t sure you could do. Even if you don’t do it, aren’t you happy you went for it? We are all meant to have goals and commitments. Sometimes we don’t achieve them. Sometimes it’s just about the journey and the path we take to get there.

Commit to doing something every day. Commit to making more of yourself and to being positive no matter what. Even commit to getting out of your comfort zone. Facing that “fear” head-on and owning it. Showing it who’s boss.

Each and every one of us has it in us. Do you have something you want to strive for? Commit and go get it. Stop letting yourself down.

Pick the one thing every day and commit to it. You’ve got this.
