Commitment is one of those words that gets thrown around very easily these days. Everybody says they have true commitment for – their success, their relationship, leveling up.
Here’s the reality. Most people are fucking lying. The only commitment they have is to their own bullshit story. What is the story? Their story is they don’t have time so therefore they choose to be committed tomorrow. The fact is that they don’t have enough money today so they will invest tomorrow. Their story is they don’t have enough resources so they will take care of things tomorrow.
Most of us are committed to the same bullshit story. Look at where you spend your money and your time and that will tell you what you are committed to.
Don’t say you are committed to your business and your family if you are spending most of your time in front of the TV or going to the bar.
Don’t say you are committed to your health if you only workout once per week. Don’t say you are committed to God when you haven’t opened a Bible or attended a breakthrough experience to get you connected. Don’t say you are committed to that shit if you really aren’t because you are only lying to yourself.
My kids are at my in-laws and my wife is headed to L.A. The house is now empty except for me and our bunny. As I sit here alone in my house, I ask myself, “Why am I doing this?” It hurts me to leave my kids. It hurts me to see my wife leave.
I am committed to creating an impact, committed to level up my business. I am committed to showing my kids what is possible so they don’t see their dad wasting his fucking time thinking and dreaming about what could be possible.
I am committed to doing something about what I love. I am proud that my wife is on a plane right now because she is committed to her business and her growth. I am proud that my kids could kiss me goodnight and tell me to have fun because I am committed to their growth. It’s not all about me. It’s about my evolution into what I could be if I stay committed.
I’d be lying if I said I have always been committed. Sometimes I am full of shit and commit to something and give up. Sometimes I commit to things I don’t want to do. We are all committed to something but we have to determine what it is and what it would take to remain committed to it.
You are exactly where you are today because of your commitments. If you don’t like where you are, just fucking change it. GET COMMITTED.
No one is going to do it for you. No one is going to save you. God isn’t going to come down from Heaven and give you a miracle. It’s up to you to commit to the shit you want to do.
