With Commitment


“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”
Peter F. Drucker

Commitment is what spurs us to take action, and what we are willing to give 100% to achieve, while putting aside personal gain and recognition. Being committed is a willingness to do whatever it takes to fulfill and follow through on a responsibility. It may not even be what we most enjoy, but none the less, being committed means we are going to do it regardless.

To have commitment we must find meaning and purpose behind the mission we are pursuing. Purpose is similar to passion, and the development of a passion that spurs us toward our mission is half the battle of achieving goals. Passion is what drives us forward. It is what gets us out of bed each day and what keeps us awake with excitement at night. Without an inner sense of purpose and motivation, it becomes much more difficult to sustain commitment.

Being wholeheartedly dedicated to doing something comes fully-equipped with an incredible force. Magical things start happening when we commit ourselves to doing whatever it takes to get somewhere.

Look deep inside yourself and begin examining what ignites your passion for life right now. Explore this area as an area of commitment. Making a choice – a committed choice – is the first step along the journey to realising your goals.

Make that commitment today!

“If you had started doing anything two weeks ago, by today you would have been two weeks better at it.”
John Mayer
