Commitment is potentially the one thing that separates success from failure. It occurs to me that success is a result of a great level of commitment. In other words, in my experience, the clients with whom I have worked who achieve a high level of success also possessed a greater level of commitment than those who did not succeed.
In my experience, I have seen that sometimes people see the grass as always greener. They yearn for something easier and more profitable than their job or their business. They hate where they are; they don’t like their job; and they feel that surely there is something better. They look elsewhere, where the grass is greener, to the place to which they feel they can make a leap. Whether the leap is to real estate, owning a business, or becoming an investor, they believe the leap will be easy-- much easier than working where they are in today. They envision exerting very little time, very little effort, and very little commitment in return for a lot of whatever it is they want. Unfortunately, in my experience, the universe does not work that way.
If you look to the past of those you would like to be like, I guarantee you he possessed commitment and dedication and probably were willing to shed some blood, sweat and tears as they climbed to the place you find them today. I am sure there are other characteristics that contributed to their success. Perhaps their psychology and their willingness to seize opportunities placed in front of them, but, I say, at least in my experience, the biggest difference between successful and non-successful people is their habits and their commitment to making what they want happen.
Spend some time to develop a very clear picture of the results you want to achieve. The more vividly you describe the benefits you will receive as you achieve your goals, the more likely you will be to take action. Your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a vividly imagined dream and reality. If you can get emotionally involved in the picture you are developing, and if you can attach the emotion you would have if you had already achieved your goal, you will begin to convince your mind that you are who you want to be. Feel what it would feel like to be there now. The more vividly you can describe the benefits you will receive, the more entrenched emotionally you will become, and the more likely you are to take action and resist your need for homeostasis thus allowing you to expand beyond your comfort zone and experience growth. Commitment comes from becoming emotionally immersed in your endeavors. Commitment provides the fiber to change.
