Commit to Being Successful (Rather than Just Wanting To)

When talking about mindsets people need to have to succeed in business, one of them is an actual commitment to success. You likely won’t go far by just wishing and hoping.

What do we mean by this?

The following is from a video by James Pelton, founder and CEO of Mobile Text Alerts:

Successful people COMMIT to what they want to happen, instead of just WISHING it would happen.

Everyone wants financial freedom and time freedom.

But some people commit to making it happen, and others just talk about it.

You might not be a big Star Wars fan, but I love when Yoda is asking Luke to do something, and Luke says, “I will try,” and Yoda snaps at him, “No, do or do not. There is no try.”

That’s great wisdom – Just talking about things and thinking, “Well, maybe I will make that happen” never works.

People don’t usually just stumble into success. They commit to succeeding and then find a way.

They get a clear picture of their “why,” and with that in their mind they do whatever it takes to be successful. They commit to it.

There’s a legend – we don’t know if it is true or not – but when Hernan Cortes came to the Americas, it’s said that he burned the boats.

He did that, because he knew this was true – if his men weren’t committed to success, they would give up and leave.

But if they had no other choice – if in their mind there was only one option: succeed – then they would find a way to make it happen.

So commit to succeed, don’t just WANT to succeed.
