Commitment = Success

Have you ever found yourself in one or more of the following situations?

  1. You dial into a scheduled conference call. Ten minutes after the fact, you learn that the person is no longer available for the call she requested.
  2. You are hosting a networking reception and are surprised that several individuals who sent in their RSVP do not show up.
  3. An individual tells you that he will get back to you by a given time, yet you do not hear from him.

Commitment cannot be substituted by an app. Keeping your word is a personal choice and a definite precursor to success. Commitment is about action rather than mere talk. This quality is available for anyone to grasp no matter where they are on the corporate ladder.

Brand yourself as a credible person by keeping your word. It will take you far.
