Are you truly dedicated or are you just talking because it sounds good?

To truly be dedicated to something you must devote your full-time, energy and effort to the task at hand. The people who we view as successful are the people who dedicated their lives to accomplishing their goals. True dedication is a hard road to travel. On your path to success, there will be many road blocks and obstacles that will try to defer you from accomplishing your goals. Just know that nothing in life comes easy. If success was easy then everybody would be successful. The things that are worth attaining usually come with hard work and determination. A determined mind can accomplish anything it sets out to accomplish. If you can conceive it, you can achieve it. Sounds corny right, but it’s true.

After you conceive a brilliant idea in your mind, you must visualize it in its entirety and then come up with a plan of attack. You won’t be able to completely see your plan if you keep your mind distracted by other things that are outside of yourself. I said this before and I will repeat it a thousands times until you get it; you have to quit watching TV. I say that with all sincerity. I am not just saying it because it sounds good, it truly works. I haven’t watched television in over six years and I have accomplished everything that I set out to do. Everything from here on out is excess. You know, the American way; we need moor and moor and moor!

Think about this for a second. Nearly every person that you see on TV has accomplished their goals and are at where they want to be in life. Yes, this message is also for the dudes that say I only watch sports. While you’re watching other men get money, fame (doesn’t really matter) and power you could be working towards getting the same things, but you choose to watch Power. Yet, you have none. Instead of tuning into Empire, you could be building your own.

The time spent watching the box could be time spent on accomplishing your dreams, goals and aspirations. I kind of find it hard to listen to people talk about their financial problems, weight issues or even boredom when there is so much time in the day to go out and do or be something great.¬†How are you scrolling through a timeline when you barely have your own timeline situated? I’ll let you think about that for a minute….

You must also delete all of your social media accounts. Unless they are helping you to further advance your agenda, DELETE them! They are deterrents and time wasters. I recently got back into social media because I have this site and if it wasn’t for this site I wouldn’t have any. And you shouldn’t either! You should be dedicating all of your time to your needs, wants and desires.

If you are truly dedicated you will do the things that you know that you must, even when you don’t feel like doing them. In doing so you will develop new and better habits. Whatever success may be to you, better habits will get you there. So I’ll ask again, are you truly dedicated or are you just talking because it sounds good?

  1. You’re right man. We all have goals and dreams. That’s the easy part. To make it happen is the hard part and requires lots of work and planning. I love this post. This is great motivation. ??

      Yes it does brotha! Yes it does! A lot of people like to talk about their aspirations but aren’t really interested in putting the hard work that it takes to achieve their goals. But it sounds good when they say it though! I appreciate you stooping by!
