Do You Have This Special Character Trait?
"If your energy is as boundless as your ambition, total commitment may be a way of life you should seriously consider."
Do you have the state, or instance, of being obligated or emotionally impelled?
That's the dictionary definition of commitment.
Total commitment is:
- the level of commitment that includes enjoyment of working toward your goals
- the sacrifice of other activities that are distractions from your goals
- the ability to focus, concentrate, and think with clarity to enter into the state of flow
Total commitment is not a lifestyle recommended for everyone.
Are you willing to go "all in" and work hard to experience success?
If not, you can stop reading now.
You have probably experienced some “magic moments” when you are doing something you really love to do, where you have set aside distractions and are able to focus and concentrate for long enough to really get into the flow of things. You lose your sense of time, there seems to be no past or future, only the present; and you have the sense that you have become one with the activity in which you are engaged in the moment.
One of the steps to getting in the "flow" is to work quickly and with passion, do not slow down, keep up the feverish pace of thought and action, lose yourself in the moment, and allow yourself the freedom to truly be in the present. Be aware that no one can, or should, remain in a constant state of flow.
Do more than you are expected to do, you will be noticed as someone who is different from others, someone who has risen above the negative and lazy attitudes of others, and for doing so, you will be presented with many opportunities for promotion and advancement.
Total commitment is one of the few ways to experience a life that results in the attainment of important personal goals. Do you have total commitment?
