In order to achieve what you want, your dreams and goals, you need to commit. That means you need to do the things that you do not really need to. The things that if you did not do, will not threaten your well-being and livelihood, but if you do them, you will get closer to what you desire. It is up to you to make that commitment. That you will make the move from optional to non-negotiable. That you will wake up early in the morning and work on yourself. That you will go to the gym and give it your all even though people say that you are already looking great as you are. The reason you still do them anyway is not because it is not true, but because you have a different set of standards. Not that you are ungrateful but you believe that you can do more, that you deserve more. That is why it may be optional to some, but to you, what you do is simply non-negotiable.
