Today’s Meme Quote About Commitment
“You always have two choices: your commitment versus your fear.” – Sammy Davis Jr.
Do you have a goal? Are you working hard, but it feels unreachable or unobtainable at times? If it does, use this inspirational meme to give you the courage to move forward. Go on, take the next step! If you need support, reach out to your friends and family to help you stay positive and focused on staying committed to your goal. Don’t let fear stop you.
If you are struggling to stay committed, then surprisingly, you may not be as fully committed as you need to be. I found a very interesting article regarding being fully committed to a goal and why some people seem to commit much easier. Have you ever heard of the 100% rule? It simply means that working 99% on something is hard – 100% is easy.
Author Susie Moore writes about the 100% rule in her article, “The 100 per cent rule: The simple advice that changed my life.” She identifies three components of the rule.
- Identify what specifically needs 100% of your attention – Not all parts of your life needs 100% commitment, but if you look deep within you, your heart knows what does – That little voice will tell you!
- Put in the effort – Doing something 99% is exhausting. Why? Because it weighs on your mind. It allows you to waver and skip out “once in a while.” This leads to a never-ending cycle of non-commitment. 100% means no wavering, no excuses!
- Repeat (Repeatedly) – “True happiness is the joy we experience when we move toward our potential.” The guilt is gone, which leaves more room to commit to your goal.
Give the 100% rule a chance and see if your commitment grows and your guilt and fear declines. I would love to hear your stories of committing to a goal or overcoming fear below!
