Vince Lombardi, the Hall of Fame Football Coach said, “Most people fail, not because of lack of desire, but because of lack of commitment.”
We hear the term commitment a lot. What is commitment?
Commitment is an agreement to do something in the future. More than an agreement, it’s an obligation. It’s about going “all in”, being consistent in what you do, being disciplined and persistent. It’s doing things that others don’t want to. And it’s hard!
Years ago, I made a commitment to myself to start a business, to change myself, and to approach things differently. Specifically, I committed to changing the way athletes were marketed and how companies could build athletes into their marketing campaigns. I made it a personal obligation to help all stakeholders—athletes and companies alike.
Commitment is also about learning all the time. I’ve committed to becoming a professional in the field of sales far beyond what I ever knew existed. Today, I continue to be committed to growing and coaching and teaching people how to reach new heights previously unattainable. Always observe and learn from everything you do, then apply what you learned and push yourself.
Commitment is extremely hard to uphold for the long term, but when you commit, amazing things happen!
