The indispensable key to success
It has been said that, “ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.” Your commitment to your work (business) is demonstrated in how much of yourself you put into it. Commitment is not measured in words, but in actions. We cannot know how committed you are to your work, only by your words. If truly you are committed to your work, your actions will say it all.
Success at work does not come only by mere positive confession or positive thinking. Success is a product of hard work and commitment. Those who don’t commit themselves to something worthwhile do not become someone of worth.
Those who shoot at nothing end up hitting nothing. Those who do nothing end up being nothing. Your doing determines your being.
Many of us want God to be involved in whatever we do. We all desire God’s blessings over the work of our hands, but sometimes we don’t know how to get God on board. You cannot get the ALMIGHTY involved in what you are not involved in with all-your-might. He is the ALMIGHTY and His interest is not aroused towards anything that does not involve all-your might.
God does not invest in a venture that runs without commitment. He is a hardworking God. He worked for six days, during creation in the Book of Genesis, and rested the seventh day. This shows who God is, when it comes to work. Jesus sees diligence at work as a matter of must (Jn.9: 4). Until you see work from God’s perspective, you can’t enjoy God’s blessing in your business.
“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; He shall not stand before mean men.” Prov.22: 29.
If you want to attain to the top of the ladder in your vocation, you must be willing to pay the price of commitment and diligence. The depth of your commitment today determines your future at work. What you are doing today holds the key to your next level.
“His master replied, ‘well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ ”Matt.25: 23 (NIV).
What qualifies you for tomorrow’s higher height is the quality of your commitment to your work today. You need to do all you have to do with all your might today; so that you can be all you can be at work tomorrow. All the people you meet at the peak of the ladder in your vocation, did not jump there, they climbed. Gandhi said, “There are two kinds of people; those who do the work, and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group, because there is less competition there.”
Fuel For Commitment
“So we built the wall, and the entire wall was joined together up to half its height, FOR THE PEOPLE HAD A MIND TO WORK” Neh.4: 6.
A wise man said, “Do what you love and love what you do.” Passion is the fuel for dogged commitment. Wherever there is passion, there is commitment. If you want to be truly commitment to your work, you need to fall in love with it. It has been discovered that passion-driven staff are more committed than profit-driven staff in any office environment. If you love what you do, it will be easy for you to put all your being into it. Committed people do not just engage their hands and heads in their work, but also their hearts.
Most of the successful people, I have read about are people that are passionate about their work. Pastor Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God is passionate about turning the hearts of millions to God. Bishop David Oyedepo of the Winners’ Chapel is passionate about the liberation of mankind from the devil’s oppression.
