Make A Commitment To The Process

If you want to be successful you have to make a commitment

Are you the type of person who gives 100% to everything you do?

Or do you quit along the way when things start to get a little tough?

Saying one thing and doing another is more common practice for most.

That’s why you see so few people who achieve great things in life or in business.

Putting your heart into something and make a commitment to see it through is necessary if you want to achieve anything worthwhile in life.

“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.” ―Peter F. Drucker

Everyone wants to achieve and have success.

Very few are willing to pay the price for what it takes to achieve success most of which is to make a commitment.

Making a commitment means that you have to say yes to some things while saying no to others because you can’t be everything to everybody.

Lots of people are afraid of commitment

If you suffer from low self esteem or a poor self image, you will likely be afraid of commitment.

Low self esteem creates an insecurity that does not allow you to make a commitment because you know you will fail.

If you look at yourself as a failure, making a commitment will push you  outside of your comfort zone.

Being afraid of commitment pertains to anything in life, relationships, business or sports.

Everyone has a story that they have bought into about themselves.

This story comes from the environment you grew up in and your past life’s experiences.

When you make a commitment you give your word and if your word is no good you are selling out your power.

Have you ever given your word to something and not held up your end?

How did that make you feel?

One of the pillars of success is commitment and without it it is not if you will fail, but when.

If you are afraid of commitment then you need to take a close look inside of yourself and make some changes.

Procrastination is a dream or commitment killer

Why put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the next day.

This is the mantra of a person who is steeped in procrastination.

Let’s take a look at the three primary causes of procrastination.

  1. Laziness.
  2. Fear of failure
  3. Perfectionism

Let me make something perfectly clear.

Each one of these is an excuse for not succeeding.

If you lack motivation, then there is a good chance that you will be living a life of mediocrity.

There is no chance for a lazy person to become successful because it takes commitment and hard work to achieve greatness in anything.

If you are afraid of failure, this is another example of someone with low self esteem and poor self confidence.

I remember growing up I was deathly afraid to ask girls out for fear of being rejected which means failing.

I also sat on the sidelines of life until I learned to overcome that fear of failure which was a meme that I had given meaning and power to.

Everyday you learn something you get better at what you do.

When will this ever change?


If you keep practising anything you will get better.

If you stop yourself  from doing anything until it is perfect, guess what?

You will never start.

Napoleon Hill, author of “Think and Grow Rich”, stated,” don’t wait until everything is perfect, because it will never be so.”

All of these 3 things are just excuses that you allow yourself to hold you back.

What is the importance of commitment?

Do you know anyone who continually says that I’m going to try that?

Try means that you will attempt something and if you don’t get your desired result you will quit.

Who ever gets their desired result the first few times?

No one!

It takes persistence and lots of practice to improve at anything.

As the great Jedi knight master Yoda said, “There is no try, just do.”

Have you ever heard the expression,” that you get out of something what you put into it?”

The importance of commitment is to first give your word and then to fully engage yourself in the process.

The importance of commitment is also taking responsibility for producing a result.

Committed people push themselves past the limits of their comfort zone and never stop.

This is how you improve.

Take money out of the equation of success and look at it from the perspective of  who you will become in the process.

Commit to the process and you will learn how to produce a result.

Commitment to success

Let me ask you something, “Do you think any successful person has ever failed?”

I guarantee everyone of them has failed.

Let’s take a look at the sales process.

Do you think that everyone buys something every time they walk in a store?


All business is a numbers game.

When you make a commitment to the process you will understand that there are several dynamics involved before you achieve success.

One is that you will not succeed 100% of the time.

You will get better at presenting your product or service to potential customers.

You will then come to know your ratios which is the number of people you have to talk to in order to get a yes.

The with practice you improve those ratios.

If you lack commitment you will get discouraged after a few no’s.

If you will experience more no’s in life than yes’s if you want to achieve anything worthwhile.

If you don’t have a commitment to success you will fail every single time.

Make a commitment and live life on your terms

If you were able to go into any business you would find that there is a strategic process to achieve the desired result.

The key is to discover what that process is and commit to it over and over.

Does it really matter that a few people along the way are going to say no?

If you look at the end game or outcome you want to achieve then you just figure out a step by step blueprint how to get to that desired outcome.

Then all you have to do is rinse and repeat that process as many times as you want.

The first person you want to make a commitment to is yourself.

You are responsible for the results you produce by the decisions, choices and actions you take.

Is it worth it to you to make that commitment to your life.

Everyone who wants to achieve success in any area of life has to commit to getting out of their comfort zone.
