Nearly six years ago, I had an epiphany, an aha! moment that crystallized my goals and future aspirations. I simply wanted to make a positive difference on a much broader scale! That epiphany was so life-altering that it led me to leave a six-figure job in the midst of the Great Recession. How would I reach my goal of ‘millionaire entrepreneur helps you succeed!’? Six months after leaving my position as a school principal to realize my dream job as a motivational speaker, coach and consultant, I was flat broke!

This time, the feeling was more uh-uh! than aha! Thoughts circled my brain like, are you sure this is what you are supposed to be doing? What are you doing wrong? Bombarded with stress from questions like, what is your Plan B? I had to admit, “There is no Plan B.”

How many times has someone told you to have a backup plan or a “plan B” for your goals? How can you give 100% to Plan A when there’s a Plan B diluting its authority? Rather than let the doubt of others misdirect my energy onto formulating a Plan B, I kept faith in myself, sharpened my focus and pursued my one true calling. (Who needs a Plan B when you’re playing your A-Game, right?)

Dr. Tommy Watson Life CoachWith my own failures and successes as evidence, I agree with author W.H. Murray’s philosophy, which sees that, until you are fully committed, hesitancy is your shadow and your plans will not be highly effective. For acts of initiative that reach goals, there is a universal truth:

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness… the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

-William Hutchison Murray

Today, I’m very humbled and blessed to say that, six years from zero later,
“I’m a genuine millionaire entrepreneur!”

And, I am making a positive difference in the lives of millions of others!
All because of one timeless truth weaving successful people together – unwavering commitment!
