Achievement Takes Commitment.

| August 4, 2018

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:”

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
~ W. H. Murray, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951)

Last week we discussed how to turn ever-present opportunities into tangible results.

This week we are going to discuss achieving greater results—in every area of your life.

From now until the end of the year we will be focusing on increasing your POWER to SET and ACHIEVE tremendously BRILLIANT goals for yourself—both personally and professionally.

Between now and New Year’s Eve, we will be talking about some really BIG words, with HUGE implications for your success: Commitment… Promises… Achievement… Excellence… Vision… Intentionality… Clarity… Power… and a whole slew of other “ten–gallon” words!

Achievement takes Power…

The simple fact of the matter is that it takes real POWER to achieve your dreams and goals. Goals do not achieve themselves. They require the sustained power over time to make them real.

Remember, even small goals take a small amount of POWER to realize. World-changing goals take world-changing POWER.

If you wonder why many of your dreams, goals, and aspirations fall through the cracks, the answer is simple: You lack the raw, results-producing personal POWER to achieve them.

Sadly, there is no “other”, other explanation!

Again, to get everyone on the “same page,” let’s quickly run through your 10 Colors to see what power level yours will need to actually achieve the results you desire.

This quick exercise will help you focus on where you are NOW, and what you will need to DO differently to get where you want to GO. 

  • My ENERGY level is great…
  • My MISSION is clear…
  • My ATTITUDE is positive…
  • My GOALS are in writing…
  • My PLANS solid…
  • My PRIORITIES are set in stone…
  • My SYNERGY and leadership skills are exceptional…
  • My ORGANIZATION is systematic…
  • My TIME OPTIMIZATION is flawless.
  • My desire to take BOLD ACTION is boundless.

It is always a good idea to take a few minutes on Monday to spot check your strengths and weaknesses. (It’s better to START the week off RIGHT rather than wondering where the time went Friday afternoon!)

If you said YES to all 10, WOW!

If you can’t honestly say YES to 3-4, you need to commit to improvement in those areas.

The Clock Is Ticking…

There are just 4 short months remaining for you to actually ACHIEVE your top 3 goals this year. Subtract about 2 weeks of holidays, and there are, maybe, 90 solid days left.

In truth, you have several options…

You can just TALK about your top 3 aspirations… you can move them from this year to SOMEDAY… you can REDUCE the size of your goals… you can ELIMINATE them… or you can simply POWER UP your performance and COMMIT to their achievement.

Achievement Takes Commitment… Commitment takes Power.

My advice is to look at each of your top 3 goals… determine if you have the POWER to make them real and if not make the commitment to improving your Power of TQ.

When you stop to think about it, there is no other “other” way!

A great place to start is with our sensational Learn & Burn program — use it risk-free for the next 90 days and you will get Fit… Smart… Fast!
