To be dedicated means to surrender all, to give your very best shot towards ensuring that goals are met and that dreams become reality. If you ask any successful person how they made it, their foremost reply would be that they were dedicated to their goals.
The etymological roots of the word “dedication” can be traced back to the Latin term “dedicare” which means the giving of oneself to some purpose. This implies that you must be consistently committed to your goals no matter how small or how big they are. It is important to note that the dividends of being dedicated to anything you set your mind to do far outweigh the cost of commitment.
FOUR BENEFITS OF DEDICATION
IT MAKES YOU WORK HARD
when you are dedicated, you tend to work hard to achieve your goals. We can’t talk dedication without hard work. For instance, in this lockdown season, many professional games are on hold, but a dedicated sprinter will use the opportunity to train himself in preparation for the next good season. In the same way, a dedicated student would use this opportunity to read up and cover as much of a subject as possible.
YOU WILL EXCEED YOUR GOALS
When you are dedicated, you achieve your goals and that motivates you to be more dedicated. You will then find out that you can even exceed your targeted goals. For example, if you commit to reading 30 pages of your textbook daily, you will discover that you can read up to 40 or 50 pages within a short while. This will give you the confidence that you can exceed your goals.
SUCCESS IS GUARANTEED
Dedication is a sure way to success. Remember if you pay the price you will get the prize. Nothing in the world can hinder or impede the firm resolve of a dedicated individual. People like Thomas Edison, Mark Zuckerberg, Abraham Lincoln etc., were all dedicated people. Abraham Lincoln failed many times, but because he was dedicated, he eventually became the 16th president of the United States.
DEDICATION BREEDS OPTIMISM
When you are dedicated, you become optimistic. You will find that you always see that the glass is half full rather than half empty. You begin to see possibilities rather than limitations. You may be trying to finish an assignment and have gone halfway. If you are dedicated, you will focus on the fulfillment you will get from completing the assignment rather than leaving it half done.
You can only be dedicated to something you believe in. The more dedicated you are the more hopeful you are that you will succeed. Why not pick on something you want to dedicate to today? I will be happy to hear from you.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
