1. Give Up The Excuses

As long as you have excuses, you will never have success. In order to be fully committed, it’s important that you let go of the excuses.

Don’t have enough time? 

  • Set your priorities and eliminate tasks ruthlessly.

Don’t know how? 

  • Find a mentor
  • Determine your true purpose.

2. Go From Interested to Committed

There’s a big difference between being interested in success and being committed to succeed.

One is wishful thinking and the other is taking responsibility.

When you just want to succeed, you’ll find excuses to give up. You may blame your boss, your education, your family, and so on.

When you are committed, you’ll take a hundred percent responsibility and work for your dreams with absolute dedication.
