How to Maintain Your Commitment During Difficult Times

  1. Have success partners you can reach out to. Success partners will also gain something if you reach your goal. When things are challenging, they can inspire you and also offer different perspectives to get you back on track.
  2. Focus on the big picture and the benefits. Make the outcome you want visible. If it isn’t, other things will take your focus and time. The end result is the big picture. Identify what you will gain if you reach it and the difference it will make.
  3. Create a plan and review regularly. Without a plan, you will not have a clear direction. Your plan should anticipate challenges before they come up and identify strategies to overcome them. It’s also useful to define milestones along the way that will indicate you are making progress.
  4. Develop new habits or rituals. Simple habits you can form include reading your goals and taking one action daily to get closer to success. Eliminating habits that are not helpful will also support you to stay committed.
  5. Reward yourself for any progress you make. If you reward yourself when you progress, you are training yourself to continue taking action. Your brain loves positive stimulation. Give yourself intelligent rewards that will inspire you to keep going.

Risks if You Are Not Committed

  • You will not reach the outcomes or successes you want.
  • You will decrease your confidence and level of self-trust.
  • You will not develop your potential or grow into the person you can be.
  • You will not learn how to deal with challenges effectively.
  • You will not feel good about yourself.
