One great truth you must embrace in your quest for wealth acquisition is that, there is no need reinventing the wheel. There is nothing new under the heaven; the sun that shines today is the sun that shone when my great grandfather was born, and will still be shining when my last grandchild shall be gathered to his fathers.
The law of emulation says, you will be successful in proportion to which you find out what other successful people are doing, and then do the same things yourself over and over again.
Success in every area of human endeavor leaves clues and tracks, especially in financial undertakings. If one is wise enough, all he would need to do to become wealthy is to locate what the rich and wealthy have done to create their wealth, and do the same.
“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through………inherit the promises.” Heb 6:12
Whatever result any man ever achieved financially can be duplicated by any dummy in any part of the world. We live in a world governed by law, not chance. Rules and principles help us to understand that everything happens for a reason, whether or not we know what it is. It is all about action and reaction; cause and effect.
Everything you see in and around your life, success or failure, wealth or poverty, has a specific cause or causes. Every cause or action has an effect or consequence of some kind or another, whether we can see it, or whether we like or agree with it or not.
This goes to show that all achievement, accomplishment, wealth, riches, prosperity and success are the direct and indirect effects or results of specific causes or actions.
The Law of Cause and Effect.
Financial freedom or a prosperous life is an effect. It is the product and after match of certain actions or causes. This is called the Law of Cause and Effect or the Law of Sowing and Reaping. What this law teaches is simply this, if you are clear about the effect or result you want, you can probably achieve it by following the footsteps of those who have achieved the same or similar results.
If you must be rich and wealthy, you would need to locate what the rich and wealthy do, and then do the same to become rich and wealthy.
One Major Tool In The Hands Of The Rich And Wealthy
A major attribute of the rich and wealthy is their commitment to wealth building. Wealth building is a conscious and deliberate endeavor; it doesn’t happen by chance. You don’t suddenly wake up to find yourself wealthy, except someone left you an inheritance. Those who create wealth consciously commit themselves to wealth building, and this is what you too must do to become rich and wealthy. You must consciously and deliberately commit yourself to building wealth.
Commitment to wealth building is a key principle and tool in the hands of the rich and wealthy. They know very well that without a serious sense of commitment to wealth building, they would not be able to achieve their financial dreams. A strong sense of commitment is the key that guarantees the acquisition of wealthy. And this is the tool you need to achieve your own financial dream.
Being committed to wealth accumulation means doing all that needs to be done to create wealth without giving up. It includes becoming a student and a devotee of wealth creation principles. Reading wealth building books and attending seminars would no longer be tedious, expensive and difficult things to do.
What Is Commitment?
Commitment is the sense of responsibility that a person displays towards a thing, promise, assignment, mission or goal. It’s being dedicated, faithful or loyal to a cause or something……the willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve a desire……a heartfelt promise to yourself from which you will not retreat.
Commitment is a discipline that galvanizes and obligates you to do something or accomplish a set task and goal. It helps to make good our words and promises to ourselves and others.
We are committed when we make a deliberate and unchangeable choice about something and stick to it.
Achieving men and women the world over, have always been people who have relentlessly made strong commitments to succeed and achieve their goals.
Commitment Builds Integrity
At the heart of commitment is integrity, making good your word. It’s an act, not a word. It is backing up your word and intention with action and performance. It is sticking to a thing or cause until it’s done. It could be something as simple as spending time with the children, showing up for a meeting on time, writing a book or starting a new business.
Learning to keep simple commitments prepares you to keep big commitment. Doing what you say will develop in you the discipline necessary to create wealth. You would grow in integrity and self-esteem as you keep commitments. People would trust you and would want to do business with you.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way.”- W. M. Murray
What a word!
Commitment Is The Power That Get Things Done.
Commitment is the power that gets things done and makes things happen. It’s the needed bridge between your financial dream and the reality of your walking in wealth. Nothing gets done without commitment. It translates your desire into reality. With commitment you are able to achieve great result over a long period of time.
Why Do I Need To Be Committed To Create Wealth
- Willingness To Overcome All Obstacles
There is no challenge free path in life; the path to financial abundance is full of all manner of unimaginable challenges and obstacles. There will be many obstacles on your path to acquiring wealth. In your quest to build wealth, you would receive your own measure of these challenges and obstacles.
When these obstacles appear, it’s really easy to be discouraged and thus lose the motivation to continue. Your commitment to wealth creation would speak expressly if you refuse to quit and give up on your dream of financial freedom.
Changing gears every time there’s an obstacle will get you nowhere. You need to make an absolute commitment to your wealth building plan and push through the many roadblocks you’ll encounter along the way. Your determination to confront and overcome all of the obstacles and challenges is the true demonstration of commitment.
The truth is this, with commitment to achieve financial freedom, you would be able to find a way round the obstacles, surmount them and ultimately move ahead to enjoy wealth.
- Willingness to Pay Any Price
Commitment is indeed an asset, a desirable quality of great value that is not common in our world today. Ours is a world of comfort and ease, where we would do everything possible to avoid every seemly inconvenience and hassle. We want the prize but not willing to pay the price. We covet the achievement and result but not ready to put in the work.
Listen friend, there is no free lunch anywhere on the earth, not even in Freetown. When we are committed to building wealth we would be ready and willing to pay needed price to enjoy wealth. Commitment to wealth building is all about the willingness to do everything necessary to create wealth.
- Ability To Stay Focused On The Commitment
Until you are committed to something, you drift along and look for what is convenient. You are not easily distracted when you are truly committed to a cause or goal. Commitment would impact upon you the ability to stay focused until your goal of financial abundance is achieved.
“Attention is the key to life.” Wherever your attention goes, your life goes as well.
Your efforts and energy are concentrated and maximized to achieve wealth when you are committed.
The prophet in 1Kings 20:40, told the story of a young servant who failed in the assignment he was given because he lacked focus. He was busy here and there, and as a result the prisoner he was to keep escaped.
“And as thy servant was busy here and there, he was gone.” 1Ki 20:40
“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:8
A double-minded person is one who has not made up his mind to build wealth. And as a result he is not committed.
- Commitment Ultimately Commands Financial Progress
“Give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all” (1 Timothy 4:15).
Ultimately, financial progress comes through commitment. We make progress in whatever we commit ourselves to. You will make great progress in your quest to acquire wealth if you’ll make wealth building a priority and you commit yourself to making it happen in your life. Your financial progress will be evident and you will indeed be financially free as you commit to building wealth.
