Being an authentic person
There are many times we are faced with situations that we just do not feel like showing up for, whether it is going to work, attending to a business, or even having awkward conversations; using myself as an example there have been times when I genuinely did not want to participate in any of my businesses or to even to say my five daily prayers as a Muslim. Something I told my daughter when we were discussing showing up when you do not feel a hundred percent was that even though no one will be there to force you, it is your responsibility to attend to your duties because it is the ethical thing to do.
When you make a commitment you have to value other people’s time and follow through on that commitment to remain the kind of person that people can continue to rely on, this is one of the fundamental elements of being wealthy. Wealthy people make sure they always show up no matter the circumstances, they follow through on commitments and when they cannot, they apologize and overcompensate for missing said commitment. This is how to genuinely be an authentic person.
Value your time as well as the time of others
On this journey to wealth, there are various ways of making money which we have discussed previously but building one’s reputation as well as the reputation of one’s business is very important in your manifestation journey. You should be known as someone dependable and not someone who continuously falls short of their obligations. Even though my podcast is not monetized, I continue to put out new episodes three times a week because my primary goal for creating it was to get my message out to as many people as I can and connect with as many people as we can which we are accomplishing successfully. I continue to show up every day and two and a half years later, I make sure I make myself do it because I know how important it is and I know the impact that it is making on people.
Showing up constantly eventually becomes part of your character. Something I learned long ago from my mother first as well as a few of my school teachers and people I view as my personal mentors like Bob Proctor and Jim Rowan was that how you do one thing is how you should do everything else; the commitment you make to one thing should be the commitment you make to everything else and if you are not able to follow through on something then the likeliness of committing to something else is very low. If you want to do well in life, you must truly commit to the goals you are manifesting for your life.
To be an individual who follows through on their commitments, you have to be able to do things even though you do not feel like it. Of course, there are unforeseen circumstances that cannot be avoided, for example, I had to move a workshop by a week because my son had appendicitis and I had to spend most of my week with him and even though I made sure I still did the workshop and made sure extra support was available, I made sure I explained why the workshop had to be postponed.
Show up every single day
Commitment is a very important part of achieving abundance and this is something many of us have taken for granted. The most successful entrepreneurs are the ones committed to their goals and to making daily actions because they are more focused on achieving the bigger picture and not on what is happening in their present life. Sometimes a daily action feels so minuscule that you do not see how it is contributing towards your achieving your goal but as long as you are making these daily actions with the right intentions, you will eventually achieve your desires. It may not be obvious now but in the future, you will realize that the actions you remained committed to daily eventually paid off in the form of your manifestations becoming your reality.
Make it an obligation to show up every day. Following the eighty-twenty rule, there will be days when you are ill or having a family emergency which is the ten to twenty percent so you must make sure that the eighty percent that is left is dedicated to showing up and staying fully committed to whatever you are doing no matter the circumstances in your personal life. Show your character and you will succeed. Personally, if someone does not carry out the commitment they have made to me without giving any reason prior, my value for them immediately diminishes and it is unlikely that I will ever be able to work with said individual again.
Strive to always be seen as a reliable person. Do not be the kind of person who wastes people’s time because you do not want others to make commitments to you and end up wasting your time either. No matter how you are feeling, come through on your commitment and hold yourself to higher standards because there will always be people waiting for you to fall short so that they can see you as unreliable. Do things because it is the right thing to do even when you do not want to do them, hold yourself to a standard, and fulfill your commitment because you are a person of integrity.
Be an authentic person. Success comes with various twists and turns in life but as long as you continue to follow through on your commitments, commit to your goals and take daily action, have higher standards for yourself then you will achieve any form of desire you have for yourself eventually. What you do in your professional life will reflect in your personal life and vice versa you must make commitments and follow through on them in all areas of your life.
Be committed to yourself even as you accomplish your daily commitments. No matter the circumstances life throws at you, you will overcome them as long as you stay true to yourself and do the necessary work even when you do not want to. There are always going to be things that turn up that you do not want to do or you do not feel like doing but you cannot give in to these urges, you must remain focused and committed in order to reach your manifested goals.
