“Your own resolution to success is more important than any other one thing” – Abraham Lincoln
Simple formula for success: Make commitment on regular basis – large or small – with a conviction. And then do whatever it takes to make it happen.
At times we just fail to commit either for the fear of failure or trying to play safe. Don’t. You learn a lot about yourself when you fail. Shy away from making a commitment and sooner or later learning process stop – so does the growth. That day main purpose morphs from doing that extraordinary thing to just getting by.
Kind of commitments we make and how we live up to those commitments – shape us and our destiny. We don’t stumble into greatness – it is usually an outcome of conscious/committed choice and lot of hard word. When JFK reaffirmed America’s commitment to land a person on the moon – it was a conscious choice; big commitment and lot of hard work of enthusiastic people. We chose to go to the moon and not stumbled on it. It was the commitment that made the difference!
So make those tough commitment that are required and learn a lot about yourself going through the process. Remember – we fail to learn; not learn to fail.
