Every day people come to me with great ideas. Whether it be lose weight, get stronger, change jobs, better relationships, get their life straight, change their mindset, ETC. You see, they actually think they are committed to this “new idea.” Their interest is peaked and suddenly they believe they are committed. But far too often they are confused about what the true meaning of being committed really is and mistake it for being interested.
I’ll never forget when my brother was telling me about his premarital counseling years ago. He said his mentor was trying to break them up. Now before your jaw drops, hear me out. Truly, this is brilliant. You see, if they were able to be broken up in the honeymoon stage, you better believe that when life really hit, that foundation would not be strong enough. He was making sure they were committed and not just interested.
So when my clients approach me, I challenge them to a level they have never been to. You see, I fight for my clients to win in life, I believe for their freedom, I study and spend 1000’s of dollars to provide them with tools to become the best version of them, but I am not about to go through all of that for someone who is merely interested. I need committed!
So I pose the question, are you interested or committed? About your relationships, career, faith, sports, financial success, etc? Where in life are you not seeing results? Ask yourself honestly, are you committed or merely interested?
I’d like to share one thing with you. Success will never come from being interested, it comes from being committed. When we are committed we create goals. We visualize. We do today what we want tomorrow. We create habits that produce life and we stick to them. Here’s a great little tip— your direction in life is directly connected to your habits. What habits do you have? They will determine your direction.
Often I hear, so where do I start?!?!?! It sounds so hard!!! Well, it starts with accountability people. If you don’t have someone in your life that will guide you, speak truth to you and hold you accountable to your GREATNESS, sorry, it’s not going to happen…we are human. You will find out if you are interested or committed real quick when you have the beautiful gift of accountability in your life.
Ok, I know that was a little intense, but hear me out one more time. Beautiful, you are worth it, you are called to greatness and you have a gift to share with this world. Believe it, trust it, and honor it, because you are a mighty woman with a mighty call on your life. Go next level, surpass being interested in life, and be committed, I believe in you!
