“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.”
― Eric Thomas
Practice Relentless Commitment
The single reason that has allowed me to stay on the journey of lifelong personal development is having a powerful, intentional, and selfless purpose – to become my best so I can help others become theirs.
But despite that strong motive to grow, I sometimes hit roadblocks which hinder my progress. To counter that, I switch my focus to honing in on a single area. It may include the following:
Growing my business
Deepening my relationships
Expanding my overall knowledge
Learning a new language or skill
Working on my health
This enables me to concentrate all my energy on one target. That way, I can improve at an effective rate because of my undivided effort.
By dedicating to growth, I can become better. As a result, I am more equipped to serve others. That’s my objective for continuous development.
Driven by that laser focus, I can cultivate unwavering dedication. Although obstacles will inevitably arise, I can remain undeterred with a resolute single-mindedness.
I understand it’s because of those challenges which make my triumphs that much more worthwhile. Without them, the path would not be difficult. It’s through overcoming those hardships I learn the wisest lessons and evolve the most.
By putting in the necessary work, I create positive results and achieve my goals. It’s because of the sweaty and bloody grind I learn to appreciate the true value of success. That’s what makes anything valuable worth having.
The formula is to simply stay on the path despite what barriers and distractions may appear. My will to persevere stems from my relentless urge to grow. It’s a borderline obsession.
With this powerful appetite to develop myself, I continue to strive for excellence. That way, I can perform at my best and become a professional in life.
Live with High Standards
Deeply inspect every aspect of your life. Your results (or lack of) are based on your level of standards.
Take health for an example. If you’re in great physical and mental shape, it’s because you have committed to a high magnitude of excellence. You have fixated on a minimum measure of performance. You’re not willing to compromise this aspect of life because you realize your life literally depends on it.
This applies to all facets.
Your actions always dictate importance. If you truly value something, you’ll make the time for it.
Realizing beneficial activities add tremendous rewards to your life, you make it a continuous practice. These non-negotiables are things you sincerely care about them.
If you can apply this unwavering relentlessness to your goals and dreams, you’ll become unstoppable.
But putting in the required work now, you are building something meaningful. With strong dedication, you do what is necessary to get your desired results.
With time, you’ll create what you want.
Singlemindedness is a common trait for top performers in all industries such as:
Anything worth having needs a high level of focus, dedication, and perseverance.
Forge the Fire to Start
To achieve meaningful and worthwhile goals, it requires an enormous amount of time and effort. Before you commit to any endeavor, ask yourself the following questions.
“How much time and effort will it take to get there?”
“Am I ready to pay the price for it?”
“What will I do when times get tough?“
“What does a win look like?”
“How can I achieve my goals in a shorter amount of time?”
“How will my life improve?”
“What action steps can I start taking today?”
Only after you have clear and thoughtful answers to the above questions will you be ready to tackle and start achieving your goals.
Once you sparked a fire to begin, maintain momentum and keep moving forward. To avoid burning out, take time off regularly to unplug and recharge. Use that space to focus on other priorities such as:
Quality time with family and friends
Alone time in nature
Personal hobbies, projects, and interests
Traveling and exploration
Another important aspect is self-reflection and introspection. This break can serve to remind you of the reasons why you started in the first place.
After regaining perspective, you can dive head first picking up where you left off.
Everyone wants success, but not everyone wants to do the necessary work to get there.
But success is simple as it begins with the decision to start. Once you initiate the process, maintain the will and habit to continue.
Along the road, you can make adjustments and pivots when appropriate. The key is relentless commitment.
Internalizing the ferocious intensity to create greatness and live an excellent life, you’ll inevitably be successful, however you define it.
