An important aspect of achieving goals is commitment. We have to be committed to achieving our goals, or it won’t happen. Something always comes up in life to take our attention away from our goals and if we are not committed to achieving our goals, there is a good possibility we will stop taking action at some point. There is also a chance that we might not see instant results that our goal is happening or is going to happen and if we are not committed, we will lose motivation for working on them.
Being committed means pushing through no matter what. There may be days when something comes up where we can’t take actions towards our goals, but if we are committed, we will get back to them as soon as possible. There may be days when we feel it’s near impossible to reach our goals, but if we are committed, we will keep taking action. Being committed will keep us taking persistent action, and persistent action is what will eventually make our goal happen.
To commit to a goal, you should first know what the end result is so you will want to make it happen. It’s helpful to write it down. Write down all the details of the end result. If it’s a career goal, write down what position you want, how much money you want to be making, the hours you will be working, how you will feel when you get the end result, how you will be living life when you get the end result and any other detailed information. With any goal, write down as many details of the end result as you can. Then you can read it frequently and know exactly what you are committed to achieving.
Then it’s just a matter of writing out the steps to getting there and making a daily plan that allows you to take action on those steps. Sometimes you might not know all the steps to getting to your goal and that is okay. You can write out some first action steps you will commit to until you know what the next steps are, then when you know what the next steps are, commit to those. The important thing is the commitment so you will not give up on taking steps towards your goals. No matter what.
