The Power of Commitment

get in shape in dunedin FL

To get in shape at any age requires a commitment.

The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor”.

Vince Lombardi – NFL coach, member- Pro Football Hall of Fame

Commitment is the starting point of all worthwhile achievement. And making a decision is the starting point of commitment.

You can turn any aspect of your life around, taking it from miserable failure to triumphant success, in a matter of a few seconds. You do this by making a decision, and then committing to that decision.

Commitment means being “all in “. You push all your chips to the middle of the table ;you burn your bridges behind you. There is no turning back. Without commitment, very little of great value is possible. With it, very little is impossible.

Once you make a committed decision, something special happens to you. You will find an inner drive taking  hold of you, propelling you in the direction of your desired value.

If you want to get in shape, the first thing you need to do is DECIDE you are going to get in shape, and then COMMIT to that decision. Many people set a goal of getting in shape , often in the form of a New Years’ resolution. Very few of these people actually see their goal through and achieve the desired result; perhaps you were one of them. The reason. The reason is they have not turned their goal into a commitment.

How do you turn a goal into a commitment?

“NO MATTER WHAT”

You turn a goal into a commitment by stating your goal, then adding the words “no matter what” .

For example:

“I will work out 2 times per week for the rest of the year, no matter what.”

“I will not eat dessert with dinner this month, no matter what”.

Adding the words “no matter what” to a goal transforms a mere desire into a committed decision, thereby increasing the chances of reaching the goal to practically inevitable. This is the power of commitment.

Take a moment now to reflect on why you want to get in shape. What do you think being in shape will do for you? How will it improve the quality of your life? Why is it important to you? Answering these questions will help you successfully make your way through the myriad of distractions we all deal with in day-to-day life and get your workouts done.
