Was 2015 a success for you?… let’s look back

With the end of the year approaching its always good to look back at your success’s for the year…

Personally I have had many successes this year… My radio station had some great ratings too. I traveled to Europe again, both my daughters are doing well, and my wife’s business is booming and I hit all my running goals.

You see –

Excellence is all about superior performance. It’s not just getting over the line, its trying to blast past it.

Commitment is one of the ingredients in every success story.

It’s about a decision to act with certainty. NO if, buts or maybes.

You see it through and give what ever it takes to get the job done.

It’s staying the course and getting the job done. It’s keeping the promises that we make to others and most of all ourselves.

Theres a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something… you might do it when circumstances permit… When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.

Commitment is keeping your eye on the goalposts and not getting distracted along the way.

Commitment is not giving up. Ever!

The other thing to think about is how you feel about winning. Maybe your definition is you can only win if somebody else loses. Maybe you need to win for ego and self worth reasons.

Or maybe your view is Ninja like and you only ever compete against yourself.

If you have played your best game this year and you were 100% committed maybe you have experienced victory too.

I hope you had a great year and all the best for 2016!
