Maximize Your Influence

Commitment has a lot to do with perspective.  When you consider your personal perspective, do you see the big picture, or are you swept up by the whims of the moment?  You have to make sure your perspective is rock solid; otherwise, your commitments will be flimsy.  We all know that when someone says, “I’ll try,” it will never happen. “I’ll try” versus “I will” are two different attitudes.  

With one, you are committing. With the other, you’re leaving yourself room for a way out.  Make sure the commitments you make in a moment of excitement have the sustaining motivation to take you to the next level.  Great persuaders make their commitments stronger than their moods.

One of the key ways to make sure our commitment remains strong is to develop willpower and the ability to delay gratification.

How can you increase your commitment level?  How do you keep those promises to yourself?  Is there a goal that keeps nagging at you?  Good news!  There are solutions.  Join me for this week’s podcast as I interview Jason Hewlett.  We are going to discuss three questions and reveal the solutions.
