How committed are you to the cause?

Everyone is committed to something. We all have a cause, or purpose. Even if you choose not to commit to something, like a relationship, or a job, or a business, you are still committing to not commit.

The level of commitment you make to anything in life, will determine the level of success you achieve. It is a simple matter of fact. Commitment is a choice we are all faced with at some point.

However; today I want to share some thoughts to encourage anyone facing a challenging time with a project, business, or relationship.

Taking business as an example – It’s easy to make a commitment to branch out on your own when your pumped about the perks being your own boss entails, (five to ten years down the line) but it doesn’t look so pretty when you are a few months in, and things don’t seem to be growing as fast as you hoped they would.

So what do you do when you find yourself at a crossroad of:

Do you choose to carry on, or do you choose to give up?

Giving up is easy. To some it may seem like the safe option, but to others (like myself) giving up is a risk I am not prepared to take; and neither should you.

This doesn’t just apply to start up businesses, but to every kind of organization, project manager, marketing department, team, mother, family, friend and relationship.

In life circumstances have the tendency to cloud our judgement, and given their ability to change like the wind. It’s healthy to remind ourselves why we choose to commit to something way back when.

Some things in life take longer to grow than others, and like the good old sayings state:

“Rome wasn’t built in a day.” No matter how green the grass looks on the other side of your hill, it’s always greener where you water it.

Staying committed to the cause requires reflection, and determination to press through the challenging circumstances of life.
