For many years, people have said that I am crazy. As I found watching Alice in Wonderland recently, all the best people are! They say that I should be committed, but what they don’t understand is that I already am. Let me explain.
I love the saying, “In for a penny, in for a pound”. Quite simple, if you are going to do something, give it all you have. So when a recent client said that their gala ball was Australian and Nez Zealand Icons, I couldn’t just dress as the icon, I had to BE the icon. I chose Dame Edna Everage. This is how I looked.
The reality is it wasn’t pretty. A 190cm hairy bloke squeezed into a pink sequin and feather dress just isn’t right! I had trouble with the shoes so I made my own with aluminium foil, not pretty but effective! They thought I was insane, but I wasn’t, I was just committed to what the client wanted. The client absolutely loved it! None of their team will forget the event in a hurry, for a whole lot of reasons, one of which was the MC!
What about you? Are you committed to what you want to achieve? Do you focus on your goals and targets on a daily basis? Are you working towards getting you goals and not just setting them? Do you throw yourself at life with abandon or just stick a toe in the water?
Life is to be lived. I believe you need to squeeze the very last drop out of every day because it is not coming back again. Maybe I am crazy. I am definitely committed and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
How committed are you?
