Now, the question you must answer honestly is, “Am I interested or committed to my own success, relationships, education, or whatever it is you are striving for. To understand more clearly what I mean by being interested or committed, ponder this little tale of a pig and a chicken’s contribution to a bacon and egg breakfast, the chicken is interested, the pig is committed! When we commit to our dreams we make a vow, a promise, or a pledge, to be reliable, steadfast, and to give it our all. We see our goal or dream as an obligation and then we do what we must to see it through. Five signs of commitment are:
- You give your word, keep your word, and make that promise a priority.
- Your goal is foremost in your consciousness, conversations, and thoughts.
- You have a plan and you work on it faithfully, diligently and with regularity.
- You give it your all, and…
- You don’t give up!
You must go after your dreams with the same commitment you would have if you were fighting a gorilla. You don’t give up when you get tired; you give up when the gorilla gets tired.
