Do you have commitment issues in your business?

by Alison Bradford

Do you have some big dreams you want to achieve?

Maybe one day you’d really like to cut down on the hours you put into your business so you have time to take up that new hobby you’ve always wanted to do.

Maybe one day you’d like to make enough money in your business to put your kids through private school, or jet off on a couple of luxury exotic breaks each year.

Do your dreams feel any closer right now or are they still as far away as ever?

If they’re still a ‘one day’ or a ‘some day’ then you may be missing a little commitment.

Either of these sound familiar to you?

‘Once I have some more time, then I’ll be able to ……..’

or how about,

‘Once I have some more money, then I’ll be able to ……..’

Hard truth time – these are excuses!  You are kidding yourself if you think something will miraculously happen and you will suddenly find yourself with more time or more money to go and make your dreams reality.

 

What you need to do is fully commit.

 

It’s as simple as that!

Until you fully commit to your vision of what you want, you’ll always be waiting for a ‘one day’.

You either want this thing or you don’t, right?

If you decide you want it, then you need to want it bad enough to make it happen.

No more dreaming about the ‘one day’, what are you prepared to do to make it a reality? Start writing it down now.

Stop making the time and money excuses.

If you want it enough then you will find the time and you will find the money. What do you need to sacrifice to get there? What can you stop spending time and money on and divert these resources to your dreams instead?

Get creative – look at ways you can achieve these things rather than the obstacles you see right now.

Once you fully commit to what you want you will start to find ways to make it happen, rather than excuses as to why its not.

 

I know that it can be scary to commit. After all, what if you fail? Well, then you’re no worse off than never trying. Except that you’ve probably learnt loads of things that will help you next time.

If you never fully commit you also have a ready made excuse as to why you never did it.  But do you really want to look back and think ‘if only…’ or would you rather look back and know that you gave it everything you’ve got?

This is one of my favourite quotes on commitment that I want to share with you;

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”  Goethe

What are you going to begin now?

If you’re still feeling uncertain about your dreams, or you want some support to clarify what you need to do to achieve them, I’d love to help you. (It’s what I do best!) Simply book in a 30 minute ‘find out more’ call with me here and you may be amazed at the progress you make in just 30 minutes.
