4 Commitments Every Great Person Makes
Every great person makes certain sacrifices and choices on their journey towards greatness. For me, I have defined those commitments as the following:
- Having Confidence in Yourself
- Having a Willingness to Learn (continuously)
- Understanding That Nothing is Beneath You
- Never Giving Up
Having confidence in yourself is extremely important because no one is going to believe in you more than you believe in yourself. You have to believe that you are worthy of every great thing that could potentially happen to you. Confidence is Snatch'D! In general, confidence, affords you an opportunity to collaborate with others and network in a way that a lack of confidence can not.
Having a willingness to learn (continuously) helps you to gain knowledge in many areas, while also providing an opportunity to expand your skill-set. As we learn and grow, in a personal and professional manner, we provide ourselves with an opportunity for a transformation that can truly change our lives. It opens the door for enhanced experiences and the ability to learn new ways of doing things and solving real-world problems.
Understanding that nothing is beneath you is an amazing way to grasp an in-depth understanding of the importance of working hard and staying humble. My philosophy is I do whatever it takes to get the job done, as long as it's legal and ethical. If this means that I have sacrifice a little bit of sleep, then that's what I do. Often times, you have to do things whether you like them or not; that's life!
Never give up! I was taught at an early age that nothing beats a failure but a try! I have lived by that my entire life. You will fall down a million times, but keep getting up again. Keep working, keep hustling, keep striving for better! It's worth it. There are many people in the world who will try to discourage you. They'll make fun of you, talk about you, try to sabotage you, but keep it moving. Replace that negative self-talk within yourself with positive thoughts and ideas and work your a** off to make it happen. No one is you. That is your super power.
