Commitment is the Mind Masters theme for this year. This can be the year of your dreams, the year of great accomplishment, the year you realize and utilize your untapped potential; the year you achieve long sought after goals in all areas of your life. This year will be exciting and rewarding only if you make it so. You ask how can I determine to make it such a year? The year will hold accomplishment, realization and achievement only if you commit to making it happen; only if you enter and live each day with the commitment to your goals.
Last week there was a celebration for one of our Mind Masters members who years before made that commitment to succeed. Having come out of the corporate world, entrepreneurship seemed daunting. It was a time when privacy was barely being talked about, but that was her expertise as an attorney. She began by attending real estate conferences speaking and educating them on the need to pay attention. In a very short period her commitment transformed the national real estate industry and made privacy security their most sort after issue.
Commitment requires a program of goal setting joined with a decision to take action. Being a self-starter means you are focused on a desire that you hold in expectation with a belief that it will be realized.
The challenge comes when the words you use about yourself, your dreams,and those around you impact your life, in a way that most of us underestimate. Words are our first weapon in the battle for keeping your commitment to what you say you want. It is by the power of your words that you can give life to your goals or take it away.
Rory Vaden in his book “Take the Stairs”, says “Power is measured by the impact that our words have in their ability to dictate action.” So unless you have your commitment supported with action word motivators that reflect your desire, confidence and determination, you will short change yourself in carrying through on what you determined to be “important” to you.
The greatness of your accomplishments depends upon your understanding and application of the principles of commitment by:
- Vividly imagining – being able to visualize a concise and clearpicture of precisely what you imagine yourself to be, have and do.
- Activating your Desire with an intensity that creates in every new day an opportunity to earn and justify your rewards; to develop the consciousness and habits of success (self-discipline), to seek greater heights and accomplish your dreams.
- Maintaining and/or developing a sincere Belief in your ability and worthiness to attain your goals.
- A willing to take the Action necessary to see your Goals accomplished.
When you work with these principals your commitment when held over a period of time exerts inexorable power on your outcomes – so make a commitment to make this year your best ever!
