How was your week?:)
.
.
Mine was super busy but happy. I was in Cebu to launch my latest book “Is it Time to Quit Your Job?” This is my 11th book but this is the 1st book that is being published by a major publisher, my dream publisher.
.
.
Last Thursday night, my book launch and book signing in Cebu ended at 9:15pm. Then I went straight to the airport to catch my evening flight back to Manila. I landed in Manila at 1:00am the next day.
.
.
Friday, I woke up very early for my 8:00am-11:00am talk for DSWD retirees. Then I dropped by the Manila International Book Fair in SMX MOA. Afterwhich, I had a meeting with the CEO of a company who is responsible for bringing the big guys like Robert Kiyosaki, Andrew Matthews, etc. to the Philippines.
.
.
On Saturday, I wanted to sleep some more but I had to wake up early to attend our quarterly mastermind meeting with Bo Sanchez, his mentors, and the Platinum members of TrulyRichClub. At about 1:00pm, I met my team at Heritage Hotel and we shot some videos for our video blogs. At night, we proceeded to SMX MOA for the 38th Manila International Book Fair wherein I shared the MIBF stage with Kerygma Books authors.
.
.
Sunday, ahhhh! I wanted to rest on Sunday. But, I had to guest at the Call Center Radio from 6:00am-8:00am, then host my radio show The Author’s Voice from 8:00am-9:00am. In the afternoon, I gave a 30-minute talk at the Kerygma Books booth and signed books right before Bro. Bo Sanchez’s turn to sign books.
.
.
It was such a busy week for me. Why am I sharing this? Because our message this week is commitment.
.
.
How committed are you?
.
.
How committed are you to your dreams? How committed are you to your promises? How committed are you to your personal development, to serving others, and to your relationships?
.
.
Last week, it was so easy for me to be late for my speaking engagement. I had an excuse. Little sleep.
.
.
It was so easy to miss the quarterly mastermind meeting. I was tired. I could sleep some more.
It was so easy to say, “Sorry, I can’t make it to the 6am radio guesting. Puyat ako.”
.
.
But I didn’t resort to any of those excuses. Because I value commitment. And I know the value of commitment.
.
.
What is commitment anyway?
.
.
Commitment is doing what you need to do whether you feel like doing it or not; whether you feel lazy or not; whether you are nervous or not.
.
.
What are your dreams? How committed are you to making those dreams come true?
If you fail the first time, will you give up right away? If it looks like nothing is happening, will you quit?
.
.
If this may inspire you in any way…

  • It took me 3 long years to write and publish my first book. (Today, most of the graduates of the 90-Day Book Writing Challenge took more or less 90 days to write and publish their books. 3 years versus 3 months! Woah!)
  • It took me 2 years to develop the modules for The 90-Day Book Writing Challenge.
  • It took me almost 3 years to give talks pro bono before I finally made money from public speaking.

If you are doing something right now and you’re not seeing results, keep planting. Stay committed in your course. Someday, you will harvest and the harvest will be bountiful.​

.

.

Show up. Show up on time. Do the work. Roll up your sleeves and work. Yes, even if it’s hard. Even if it’s inconvenient.
.
.
Where should you stay committed?
.
.
Let me suggest 3 areas where our commitment is needed:
  1. Service – if you said yes to do a particular task, deliver!
  2. Learning – read books. Attend seminars. Seek mentors. Apply what you are learning.
  3. Relationships – prioritise your relationship with God, your family, and yourself. Spend time with the people you love.

.

.

Staying committed is not easy, but the rewards are worth it.
Stay committed!
