Tip of the Week – June 1, 2011
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” – Kenneth Blanchard
When teaching on commitment, I have used the analogy of our brave men and women in the United States military. They understand what it means to commit, because they know that lives are on the line, including their own.
Is it life or death when it comes to your business? In many ways, yes. If you want your business to survive and grow, you must take it seriously. Because if you don’t, then who will?
Commitment stems from passion and discipline. You must have both in order to succeed over the long haul. Passion is what drives you from the heart on a regular basis, and discipline is what gets you over the rough patches, when your heart just isn’t in it.
So ask yourself today, how committed you are to your business? Are you keeping your eyes tightly fixed to a horizon of results, or are you allowing excuses to hold you back from really seeing what you can accomplish?
