"Desire is the key to motivation, but it's the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek."
Although the desire to have success is very important, it is not enough. In order to succeed you have to be determined to succeed. You have to be committed to doing your very best for as long as you need to do it. Despite how much we would like it to happen, success usually doesn't happen overnight. It is the result of hard work, perserverence, commitment and determination. Your goal has to be compelling enough for you to commit yourself to doing what it will take.
This week: Take a good look at one of your goals. Is it compelling enough for you? Or is it just something on your "to do" list? Are you willing to put in the time, energy and money to make it happen? Are you determined to achieve it? Are you committed to an unrelenting pursuit of excellence to achieve it? If not, consider reworking your goals. The type of goals you set and your willingness to commit to them can make all the difference in your success.
