The Great Wall Between Doers and Dreamers

The Great Wall Between Doers and Dreamers

Posted on 27. Jan, 2013 by in Archived Post, Character Counts

When many people hear the word commitment, they automatically assume something negative. That they will have to be shackled in chains to something that they may not want for long periods of time, or in some instances a lifetime. This term comes into play in a great deal of things in life. Whether you’re signing a contract for a smart phone or you’re dealing with marriage nuptials, there are certain commitments that you will need to fulfill, they are important things that everyone will have to come to terms with.

For a moment, think about a world without commitments. Think about a world with relationships, but no commitment….jobs with no commitment. How quickly would society, in general, fall apart? Without commitment, no one would feed the homeless, no one would be married, no one would work long term anywhere, and there would be chaos. The importance of commitment fuels so many things that you can’t take it away, it’s an imperative thing to deal with and it’s the only way you could achieve anything that you would want to do in life.

Another good example of why you need commitment is when you are thinking about doing something great. For instance, let’s assume you wanted to be a championship level athlete. You would have to adhere to a strict diet, training regimen, and a lot more. You would not be able to simply rest on your laurels of natural talent, you would have to spend a great deal of time in the gym, sometimes a few times a day, and learn every little instance of the sport you are trying to compete in. Only after many years of repetition, focus, discipline, and work could you eve have a chance to compete at the professional level. Without the investment, natural talent doesn’t really take you very far, and you could end up losing out on that greatness.

Committing to something is not just for athletes; it’s for everyone in life. If you want to make money, if you want get married, if you want a car, if you want to do anything but sit on the couch you will need to come to grips with this very important aspect of life. It might take you years to succeed in any given arena but it’s those years that you end up learning the most and if you use all your senses and everything you’ve learned thus far you will make it to whatever heights you set as the ultimate glory.

It’s absolutely important to make sure that you’re committed to the idea that you can do anything. Without a sense of fearlessness when it comes to what your capable of, you will only falter when things get hard. It’s when the “potholes” in life come that you truly know whether or not you’re ready to meet the final steps in your goals. Once those goals are met, make new ones and keep challenging yourself, and you’ll see the greatest of the great.

If you want to become a lasting passive incomer, you need to be committed to your business goals. I can assure you that generating a passive income will not happen overnight. It takes time, a lot of patience, a good plan, and solid execution. If you don’t have a deep conviction regarding what your plans are and where they will lead you….you simply will not be committed to it. And this is where you really need to take a long, hard look at your level of commitment to what you are seeking to achieve. Is passive income something you really want regardless of what obstacles and resistance you may face? Are you really up to the challenge of dealing with the “potholes” on the road to your income destiny? Is this really worth fighting for? You need to ask yourself these questions and be real about it….is there anything more frustrating than getting involved in a plan and then dropping it halfway through? You start something and then you stop it for whatever reason. I’ve done that so many times in the past that it’s a sad shame. But once I understood what I was meant to do in life (my purpose), it made things a lot easier in the sense that my choices became limited and I mean that in a good way. From there, a plan was built and now I’m on the road to my income destiny. I want you to get on the road to your destiny and I’m excited about helping you get there.

Next Step: Re-examine your business plans and take a long, hard look to see if it you’re convicted by it. Do you believe in it? Can you vision yourself reaching each goal outlined in the plan? Are you mentally and emotionally prepared for temporary failures along the way?

    If you’re doing what you love, commitment wouldn’t sound so negative at all, right? Having faith in something really does have a great role before committing yourself to it. Envisioning it in the future, especially in business, you can really ask yourself, “Can I commit myself to this?”

      Hi VahnCross, thanks for your comment. I believe the term commitment has lost its importance. Being committed to something means giving it everything you have and more. Your pretty much telling your business I’m going to stick with you through it all. Committing yourself to your business means not wavering the moment your business hits its first pothole. Why not give your all? Aren’t we all tired of the “what ifs”?

    I really enjoyed this article. It really got me thinking about my business plan and reviewing my goals that I set. I created my business plan months ago and I haven’t really revisited it since it’s creation. I need to go back through my goals and make sure that I have been making the commitment required to reach them. Thank you for the motivation and the advice.

    Great post. The best things in life never happen overnight. I know what I want and I also know that it’s going to take me a while to get there, which can be overwhelming at times but I’ve started breaking it down into smaller goals and committing to one small task at a time.

      You’re doing the right thing by breaking it down into smaller goals which makes them more manageable…..

    Breaking down goals into smaller goals seems like the way to go… I think I’ll start making goal lists every day! I really enjoy that sense of satisfaction I get whenever I am able to check off a small goal on my list!

    I make goal lists every night for the next day – it helps me destress at night as I’m putting everything on paper and not worrying about forgetting something and then the next morning I have a plan of what I need to do.

    I find sometimes the difficulty with commitment is the discouragement of others. I feel completely committed and excited about the idea when I’m by myself however when I start to tell others about it I get mixed reactions. This starts a chain of “what ifs” in my head as other people project their doubts and cynacism on to my plan.

    I think it’s a combination of others not understanding the world I want to succeed in. This crazy internet blogsphere. As well as the doubt of someone behaving out side the square. Seeking something other than a 9-5 sure fire way to live.

    Thanks for the post about commitment, it’s nice to read some empowering words.

      Sam,

      Sometimes ideas are to be kept internally….for your eyes only. Other ideas do require input or views from a different perspective. You have to be mindful of those whom you are receiving input from…are they giving constructive criticism or input? It’s alright to have those “what if” moments, but you can’t dwell on them. Find someone that has a history of being upfront with you, yet while offering encouragement. Stay away from “dream killers”.

      A great way to force accountability on yourself is to post a blog of your progress and your struggles. Getting that out in the open can help motivate you so that you don’t let your readers down.

      This is why I purposely don’t tell most people about my internet business ventures and my desire to build passive income streams. To those who have only known a 9-5 routine, making income online is completely foreign and therefore impossible.

    I think without commitment it’s difficult to achieve your goal, one should be committed strongly to fulfill his dreams

    Yeah agreed Sam!

    I’ve been called “beautifully naive” before and idealistic. I think it’s just peoples reaction when they hear of someone contemplating the unknown. Just because they haven’t done it doesn’t mean it’s not possible!

    I find writing different goal lists to be most helpful. Like I write a daily to do list, a weekly goal list and a yearly goal list. I do this to give me short and long term perspective and find it keeps me on track.

    I’m so guilty of being a dreamer and not a doer. I’m working on finishing what I start and seeing my ideas all the way through.

    I love how point out that failure is temporary! I believe that is one of the main principles of successful people– Failure Is Temporary.
