What Is Commitment

Earlier this year we wrote an article "Resolutions vs. Commitment". Today we want to talk a bit further about the term Commitment. If you're not committed to self improvement....you'll never see your full potential.

For those of you who follow my writings, I like to use the definitions of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, especially for a misunderstood subject such as this. Commitment means different things to different folks. Here is what Wikipedia says:

"Commitment means to show loyalty, duty or pledge to something or someone, and can refer to:

  • Personal commitment, interaction dominated by obligations. These obligations may be mutual, or self-imposed, or explicitly stated, or may not. Distinction is often made between commitment as a member of an organization (such as a sporting team, a religion, or as an employee), and a personal commitment, which is often a pledge or promise to ones' self for personal growth.
  • Brand commitment refers to the strength of the relationship between consumers (or customers) and a particular brand (or service).
  • Organizational commitment can mean something pledged by an organization as opposed to its members.
  • In poker, it means that someone will do better by staying in a hand no matter what (even if he probably doesn't have the best hand, he would still win more money by betting all his chips), rather than folding".

Commitment to success of a corporation is imperative, however, commitment is even more important for an individual. The most important factor for individual success is commitment. Commitment sparks action....then results will follow. There are two fundamental aspects of commitment we should consider.

The first is having a strong conviction of your beliefs. The old saying "If you don't stand for something...you'll fall for anything" is so true here. I read recently as one writer said it best...commitment is "persistence with a purpose".

The second important factor is the faithful adherence to those beliefs and is represented by your behavior.

One writer put it perfectly...."It is the strength of these commitments, religiously followed, that led to their business success."

We must be committed to a set of personal values, principles and beliefs. We must have a personal vision and purpose for what we are about to commit to. In our personal life we must have a inherent personal integrity and self confidence. We must have a personal goal for self improvement and follow that goal until we are comfortable with the outcome of our goal.

If we are in business we must remember that "everyone is a customer to someone else." As a business owner you must keep our customers as the number one priority, because without customers our business is absolutely nothing. You must have a marketable product and stand behind that product or service without reservations. If we have employees in our organization, you must treat them with respect, by challenging them and giving them feedback on a job well done. Many times our employee is the one who are on the frontline having the contact with a potential client. "Commitment is a two-way street. You only get it if you're willing to give it."

Being committed and staying committed is no easy task. "Wavering commitment could be considered as no commitment at all". If you're really committed and genuine in that commitment it will always stand the test of time. Commitments will change as time goes on. Current goals may have to be revamped or refined. You may have to take some form of risk to make the changes necessary to fulfill your commitments. Be willing to improve your goals and expectations to accomplish the end results. Keep your commitment in your fore front of your heart and mind and the things you always dreamed about will become a reality.

The combination of supporting behavior and improving behavior are the ingredients of true commitment. If these two issues are separated neither will sustain your overall commitment. Commitment is a personal thing that each of us must face everyday. Being committed and staying committed is a mindset that each of us must address in our lives if we want to become a success.
