In the Kentucky derby there is one thing that separates the winning horse. Commitment.
Every horse and rider has prepared diligently for this race. Day in and day out they ride. Getting faster and stronger with each stride.
The horses after the first half mile run out of oxygen. What happens to the winning horse after that?
I’m told he goes the rest of the way on heart.
Heart is what separates the good from the great.
To see if you are really committed look deep down in your heart.
When it comes to commitment there are only four kinds of people:
1. Cop-Outs – Those who have no goals or commitment.
2. Holdouts – Those who are afraid to commit because they don’t know if they can reach their goals.
3. Dropouts – Those who begin the journey but quit when it gets too tough.
4. All-outs – Those who set goals, commit to them, and pay the price to make it happen.
Which one are you?
Are you reaching your goals and dreams?
Would you follow you?
Do others believe you and follow you?
If you answer no to these, then it may be your level of commitment.
How much money do you spend on your business each month?
Do you watch more TV than reading and learning?
Do you go by feeling and say “I’ll do it tomorrow?”
Thomas Edison used a method that made his commitment stick. It’s called the “Edison Method”.
When he had a great idea for an invention, he would call a press conference to announce it. Then he would go invent it.
Make your commitment public. Share it with your sponsor or friends and family. I guarantee you will be more committed to following through with your goals.
