Keep Your Vision Alive and Accomplish the Mission
Backpackers and hikers understand commitment.
Breaking camp in the pre-dawn hours, slinging your pack onto your back, checking maps and water supplies you prepare to leave, knowing that to accomplish the day’s goal will require overcoming fatigue, enduring great thirst and challenging extreme terrain. Your heart races with anticipation, not just for the view from the top, but for the journey.
The journey is part of the reward, and there’s an energizing confidence in knowing you won’t quit. And the reality is that our life will remain unfocused unless we spend productive time in defining where we want to go, then developing the goals needed to reach the desired place.
Without question, the focus and result we envision can only be achieved by a commitment to getting there.
Speaking of active commitment to a worthy goal, you need to understand that commitment is not simply a statement of words. It involves action, energy and often dealing with stressful situations.
As Vince Lombardi said, “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to the commitment to excellence regardless of their chosen endeavor.”
Unfortunately such commitment is often not the case, and life is lived by reacting to events rather than taking proactive action towards our stated mission. If you own a small business or want to start one, here is an excellent site that shows how to stay committed to the process of growing your business.
