Some days it seems like the never ending same ole, same ole while other days it feels as though all we do is change. We get use to doing it “this” way and then out of nowhere it changes, for the 37th time.
No matter where you go in life, you have to display some kind of commitment.
Consider your commitment in the following areas:
- Your commitment to providing excellent customer services verses a service to our customer
- Your commitment to team work and building a great environment to work in verses simply getting a paycheck
- Your commitment in improvement by fixing problems on the spot verses just getting by and letting problems grow
- Your commitment to assume initiative verses the attitude of someone else will handle it
- Your commitment to showing pride in your work verses simply putting in your 8 hours
- Your commitment to using your strengths fully verses worrying about how your weaknesses will look to others
- Your commitment to learning and expanding your knowledge verses being satisfied with your current knowledge
- Your commitment to doing what you can, where you are, with what you have verses doing absolutely nothing because you want to do more and can’t.
- Your commitment to being a positive force in your corner of the world verses being a rain cloud in everyone’s day.
- Your commitment to standing for right, even if you are standing alone verses hiding in the crowd because it is easier.
- Your commitment to be the parent of your children, even if it means you anger them verses allowing your children to call the shots
- Your commitment to take time to refresh your heart verses burning out and doing nothing
- Your commitment to excellence….period
Some people (myself included) need to feel challenged or need to feel like they are making a difference. When this is not happening, then the commitment level starts dropping and regardless of what most people think, sometimes it is harder to come out of a slump like that than it is to recover from a disaster because the pride in your work has vanished.
We can use the fact that we are ever changing to work for us. We can use familiarity and make that work for us. We have time to solve problems; we have time to discuss new ways of doing things. We have time, but are we committed to applying ourselves?
Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the “right stuff” to turn our dreams into reality. ~ James Womack
