COMMITMENT: HOW TO SUCCEED

How often have you wanted to accomplish something, but never completed it? How many times have you wanted something, but never got it? How many times have you been envious of what some one else has, but never pursued it?

It’s not because you could not complete it, get it or go after it, it’s simply because you did not commit to it!

Commitment sounds simple, however, it’s not. To truly commit, you need to think about not only what you want or desire, but how you are going to achieve it. You need to research, develop a plan, layout the steps to accomplish each milestone and determine how to measure your success during each phase.

Part of your plan needs to include others. Find people who have done what you want and talk with them about how they succeeded. Since we are all individuals, you may need to modify their input to fit your style and approach.

Students of the martial arts start out thinking about becoming a Black Belt. Those who make it, know the commitment required to get there. Those who don’t may have started with a commitment, but lost track. If you ever find that you are losing sight of your goal, talk to the Black Belts and instructors. They can help get you back on track to your goal. More than likely, you will hear that they too faced challenges in maintaining their commitment on the path to Black Belt.

Wishing you all success in attaining Black Belt and in any other pursuits you chose in life. Never give up and develop your plans to stay committed!
