So whether its marriage, your work, your family or your sports – what separates those who excel are the interested and the committed. I know a lot of men who are interested to get married but when you start telling them to take responsibility – they back down – why? Because they are not committed to becoming better men.
We can pay lip service on wanting to become great men. Wanting and Becoming are worlds apart. Becoming a responsible man requires total commitment. We will be tested as men. Our integrity, purity and our standards but when you are committed to someone or something – you are laser focus to see results. And at times you fail to stick to your commitment – you don’t make an excuse but stand up again and recommit.
It’s time we stop finger pointing on why we are where we are now. Blaming your parents, your ex girlfriend, your teacher on why you are like that is a total waste of time. Make a commitment to be a better man today for your wife or your girlfriend or your mama.
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” – Kenneth Blanchard
I highly recommend the book of Derek Sivers’ Anything You Want. Hope it pumps you up!
