“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” – Mario Andretti
Are you committed to excellence in your life every day in every way? Truly a big question when you think about it. Do you give level 10 commitment to everything you do?
Many have goals or Principle Targets they have created for themselves. Whether it’s I want to lose 20 pounds, get a 6-pack stomach vs a keg belly, make a 6-figure income this year, find my soulmate, or reconnect my relationships, the true drivers come in after the Principle Target is set.
You have to start with a strong motivation or why you are going to make changes in your life to create a different result. If this is weak or meaningless to you, most will never even get off the couch to get started. Make sure you feel emotion when you speak of your why. When you can feel it deep inside, it will help motivate and drive you.
The second portion of achieving your success comes from your determination and commitment. Each Principle Target will encounter it’s own challenges on the path to achievement. How strongly are you committed to attaining your goal? Will you do Whatever It Takes? How will you react when a seemingly huge obstacle pops up in front of you? Will you find a solution or let it hold you up and stop you?
Now when I say commit at a level 10, this means no excuses prevent you from doing what you set out as your Principle Target. Are you committed at this level… or have you been thrown off track by life’s events at one point or another in pursuit of this? The key is to commit at a level 10. If it is any other number, either change your commitment level or change what you are committed to until it is a level 10.
Reflecting on these questions will let you know what else you might need to reach your Principle Targets. Many times, people are missing at least one of these 3 key ingredients to allow their success cake to rise to the heights it is capable. Find the missing ingredient or find an expert who is easily able to see what ingredient is needed to get your success cake to rise.
