Being committed to your commitments

Being committed to your commitments

So you’ve finally decided to start your own business, and now your head is spinning like a top relentlessly. I tell you what, it’s normal to feel that way. Many start-up entrepreneurs are stuck because of a lack of confidence, motivation and a source of funds. It doesn’t need to be you, BUT success does need you to be honest with yourself.

Here’s FIVE important tips on how you can stay committed and not freak out about it:

1.DISCIPLINE – Take some time out to map out your weekly and monthly schedule. Create a personal groove on how your day or week works out, and determine where you will be working most of the time. How are you going to organize your time is important in creating discipline without being distracted. I usually spend 2-3 undistracted hours committing to what I want to accomplish everyday, and that means no distractions like social media, family, news, food or anything that will derail you from your daily goals.

2. SETTING EXPECTATIONS – Are you committing to your work full time or are you focusing on your new business 100%? Whatever it is, you will be spending countless more hours working hard more than ever. Be honest with the people around you that love you, your partner, wife/husband, parents, family and friends so that they understand where all your focus is going in to. The more they understand you, the better support you will get, because they also become committed to your goal in their own little way. Just don’t expect them to do work for you for free!

3. TIMELINES (And trying your best to adhere to them) – Give yourself a timeline or a self imposed deadline that you’ll adhere to. Remember when you were a student and you were given a deadline to finish your project at a certain period of time? You were trained to work better with deadlines in place since you were a kid. It subconsciously gives you a feeling of security and responsibility. Maybe you’ll spend 6 weeks or 6 months trying to grow that side hustle of yours or plan to do a break every year. Whatever that is, your timeline can make you feel a lot more comfortable knowing you are committed to completing your goals, one step at a time.

4. OUTSOURCING – As the CEO of your own company, your goal is to make the least possible decisions more and more, as your company grows. That’s how you gain more freedom to do more things or add new businesses. With that in mind, ask yourself what can you take off your plate to free up more time that you can afford to do? Start with the small things in mind, as those can add up to more time on your hands to be more productive. Examples of that are getting someone to do your social media engagements/customer service, deliveries, budget allocations or reduction in voluntary work. Make it count!

5. REVIEW AND REVISIT – Setting a date on reviewing your business will do wonders for you! It gives you a clearer idea on how things are currently and what you can improve on. You’ll be surprised on what you can find out about your business and your strengths after each passing year! Put a date on the calendar to take some time out for your annual business review exactly a year from now.

That’s it! I hope this adds more value and direction for you on your business commitments! What other ideas do you have? Add on to the comments sections!

I would like also to add, even though you are alone in this, you must also consider the opinion of the experts on the field and your friends. Sometimes, you need the perspective of others so you can generate new ideas and combine them all to have an excellent outcome.

Consistency is very important in achieving your goals. Every small thing counts, so make it a habit to always allot time in improving something that will make you closer to your vision. Remember your mission and purpose in life.

Responsibility and commitment is one of the critical elements for objective achievement. In case you’re not completely dedicated to an objective, you won’t give it all the exertion needed to succeed.

At the point when you’re not completely committed to a goal and the vast majority aren’t, you surrender excessively fast, work with less assurance, are bound to dawdle, and settle on more useless choices.

In this manner, an absence of commitemnt is one of the most well-known reasons why individuals neglect to accomplish their objectives.

Here and there it appears to be simpler to keep our responsibilities to other people. It’s presumably in light of the fact that we would prefer not to allow them to down or have them consider inadequately us. In the event that we didn’t come through, we’d most likely feel somewhat regretful, as well.

Making a promise to accomplish a goal, enormous or little, is equivalent to making a guarantee to another person. It’s an arrangement you make with yourself. In any case, presently, there’s nobody to baffle except for yourself.

Remaining focused on accomplishing your targets, particularly even with affliction, can be troublesome. It’s occasionally simpler to simply allow ourselves to down. There’s an awareness of certain expectations when we make a pledge or commitments to another person. We ought to have that equivalent awareness of others’ expectations to ourselves.

I will stay focused and everyday I will do something, big or small, to help me achieve my goal. I will continue even when it seems like it won’t happen or others say I can’t. I will not give up.

My goal is to achieve and I am committed to achieving it!

It all depends on what you committing yourself too…a relationship, a job, marriage new culture…if committing yourself to a relationship you would have to make yourself ready for it, asking yourself do I really care and love this person, do we have good communication, or do we have difference of of an opinion on things, will this become something else further down down the road…if you are coming yourself to a new job? Again ask yourself is it right for me, does it pay well, will this be the same job I will have down the road…as the importance of commitment it’s all all up to you and what what your expectations are

Commitment offers on a personal level security and decreases the amount of effort required to predict the future. On a societal level this is needed because humans are limited beings and we need stability in order to function.

COMMITMENT IS WHAT TRANSFORMS A PROMISE INTO REALITY.

IT IS THE WORDS THAT SPEAK BOLDLY OF YOUR INTENTIONS. AND
THE ACTIONS WHICH SPEAK LOUDER THAN THE WORDS.

IT IS MAKING THE TIME WHEN THERE IS NONE. COMING THROUGH
TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME, YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR.

COMMITMENT IS THE STUFF CHARACTER IS MADE OF; THE POWER TO
CHANGE THE FACE OF THINGS.

IT IS THE DAILY TRIUMPH OF INTEGRITY OVER SCEPTICISM.

Setting goals is only a methodology like any other. It is important if your method of life involves a target and if you are the kind of personality that needs to keep their sight on a goal to fuel their actions. However, there are plenty of people out there that are absolutely successful -and I know a few; who do not seem to have any goals whatsoever, and when inquired, they state that they have not thought about any. So, the importance of the goals depends on the context of how does a person want to live their lives.
