I can’t tell you the exact formula to losing 10 pounds in three weeks, or to being successful, or the quickest way to get rich, or how to get discovered on any social media platform. But what I can tell you is if you make a commitment and stick to it - in most cases you will get to where you are trying to go.
Years ago when I transferred from Southern University to Grambling State University (shut up Southern fans), my mother was skeptical. Sitting on my tiny cot (some may call it a bed) in my dorm room, I broke the news to Big P (my mother) over the phone that I was leaving SU for GSU. There was a pregnant pause…then with exasperation in her voice Big P said, “Sam if you transfer you will probably lose some credits and won’t graduate on time.” For those of you who don’t know really know me….here’s a short synopsis. I’m the girl you should not tell what probably won’t happen when she wants to do something because that does nothing but fuel my fire. In response to my mother’s statement I simply said, “Yes I will.” Did I know I would graduate on time when I responded to my mother’s statement? Nope. All I knew at that very moment was that I committed myself to the process of graduating on time - and only the things out of my control would prevent me from carrying out that commitment.
Three years later after leaving SU, I not only graduated on time - I graduated earlier than I was predicted to. And since then, I’ve applied that same commitment method to my other endeavors. Of course everything hasn’t workout exactly how I wanted it to, but it has worked out nonetheless.
Make a commitment, stick to it, and watch the results unfold.
