Commitment & Responsibility:
Commitment. It is a word that is really scary for most people, so much so that countless movies and books have been written about it.
Responsibility. Another word that most people, children or adults alike, can’t ever wrap their head around even wanting or liking.
At Freeman Formula, we couldn’t disagree more.
We love commitment and responsibility and we preach it. Most people think commitment and responsibility are your duties to another person, but again, we couldn’t disagree more.
Commitment and responsibility are the two biggest gifts that you could ever provide or give yourself.
Most of us break promises to ourselves on almost a daily basis.
We promise we will wake up earlier. Eat healthier. Exercise. Be more patient.
But it doesn’t happen.
As a matter of fact, no one lets us down more frequently than ourselves.
We can break a promise to ourselves 3, 4, 5 times a day and we never get upset.
But if someone else treated us this poorly, we would be livid!
Committing to what you say you are going to do and taking responsibility for your actions is the greatest gift you can give yourself, because it truly is the gift of a more extraordinary life.
When you decide that you are going to keep all the promises to yourself and you are going to take accountability for who you really are, you are then able to succeed in a way that less than 3% of the population can.
It is not only important, it is necessary if you are going to live the life of your dreams.
Are you committed or are you just interested?
You can be interested in a lot of things: world peace, soccer, politics- but if you are not committed to taking actionable steps towards making a difference, you are not committed.
If you are not actually making an effort towards improving your conditions, you are just interested.
The worst thing you can be is interested in a better future for yourself and not committed to being responsible for one.
Be committed. Love commitment.
Be responsible. Love responsibility.
Feel powerful that you are the one in charge for your destiny.
That can empower you, or hinder you.
Which one will you choose?
Make today count.
