Are you committed?
When it comes to your job and the company that pays your check, ask yourself are you committed to both?
Commitment means something difference to each person. To one it may mean that you give an honest days work for a full day of pay.
To another it may mean that you go the extra mile for your co-workers, customers and the company itself. You do what it takes to get the job done and to make sure your customers are happy and refer others to your business.
John Maxwell states, “The only real measure of commitment is action. You have to be willing to do something that others need and will appreciate.
Commitment starts in our core being; Maxwell states it begins in your heart. It is your hearts passion to do the best, give the best, and be the best.
Commitment always precedes achievement.
In John Maxwell’s book “The 21 Indispensable Qualities Of A Leader” he states that there are only four types of people when it comes to commitment:
- Cop-outs – People who have no goals and do not commit.
- Holdouts – People who do not know if they can reach their goals, so they are afraid to commit.
- Dropouts – People who start toward a goal but quit when the going gets tough.
- All-outs – People who set goals, commit to them, and pay the price to reach them.
It is important to ask yourself, what kind of person am I when it comes to commitment? Only you know the real answer.
“We cannot become what we need by remaining what we are.” ~ John C Maxwell
