Last week, I watched a short video clip from “Training With Trent.” Trenton Pierce asked, “Are you interested in or are you committed to your goals?” Great food for thought! There is a HUGE difference! I thought I would expand on his thoughts and maybe make them a little more applicable to most of our subscribers.
We all have dreams and aspirations. Unfortunately most people never become committed to their dreams and aspirations. I think this is because they are afraid of failure. If you never commit to something, you always have an easy way out. When you are interested in something, you work on it only when it’s convenient. In contrast, when you are committed to something, you will tolerate no excuses. You will see it through – at all costs.
I suggest you put your goals and bucket-list items in writing and post them where you will see them frequently. I think it helps to share your goals with someone else. Reporting your progress to others will help you stay on task. Set deadlines for accomplishing your goals. Without a deadline, you will probably fail to reach your goal. I have found it necessary to break my big goals down into smaller, more attainable goals. Keep knocking out the little goals and before you know it, you are where you want to be.
I know many of our subscribers are part-time farmers and/or cattlemen who dream of making the farm and the cattle their full-time occupation. Commit to that goal – and make it happen. Accept no excuses! Other subscribers are full-time cattlemen – but in a ten-year period, their business is breakeven at best. It doesn’t have to be that way! Commit to making the changes you need to make. If others can do it, you can do it! Many PCC customers are two to four times more profitable than all of their neighbors.
Are you committed to your goals or just interested? There is a HUGE difference! Those who are committed to their goals will often accomplish more in one year than most people accomplish in ten years. Commitment will make it possible for you to take control of your future.
