Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: The Power Of Commitment
In order to succeed in life and business, you must make a commitment to give it your all. You cannot be effective in life when you dabble. You have to be completely focused on your goal and become a ‘‘no-option” person. A ‘‘no-option” person’’ has no other choices. He or she has to make it-or else. Do or die. All or nothing! When you become that committed, you’ll make it happen, because it’s the only way!
There once was a general who led his troops on a major battle on a distant shore. As they approached the enemy, he saw that they were outnumbered, and his troops were afraid because the enemy seemed so big and strong. But the general knew they had the potential to win. After they hit land, he saw the fear in his men eyes and how tentative they were in advancing. He gave the order to ‘‘burn the boats. At that moment, his troops became energized and fearless, because there weren’t any other options. They had to win or die. They fought and gave their all, and they won.
We must all develop a sink-or-swim, ‘‘no-option’’ mindset; a do-or-die attitude. We have to make it happen. If you make that kind of commitment, your dreams will come true, In fact, they MUST come true! Why? Because you have no other option!
An older gentleman once told me that the secret to his 50-plus year marriage was commitment. He said, “You can either have a goal to stay married or make a commitment to stay married. Commitment is better!” Live life to the fullest. Success is the power of making a commitment!
