"The Commitment Crucible"

With the help of numerous mentors in my life and a development of business, I have always felt that as aspect of commitments made are essential for business success. People often associate commitment with their emotions. If they feel the right way, then they can follow through on their commitments. However, true commitment does not work that way. It's not emotions that result in success it is your character quality that enables you to reach your goals. Human emotions go up and down all the time, but true commitment has to be rock solid. To be an effective leader you need to know a few things about being committed.

  1. It us usually discovered amid adversity.
  2. It does not depend on gifts or abilities.
  3. It comes as a result of choice, not conditions.
  4. It lasts when it is based upon values.

Within the membership of the Chapel Hill Leads Group there are many members that offer the aspect of character, both in their business life and their personal life. I invite you to join us in your business development and to witness for yourself why the Chapel Hill Leads Group is the premier business development & referral group in the Region.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
