When you commit, you know you can be counted on to do what you say you will do and to have what you want.
When people are use to not getting what they want, commitment is extremely uncomfortable and oftentimes painful. You must learn to let go of the attachment and belief of not getting what you want.
Commitment means putting all your resources behind the things you have chosen — putting all your eggs in one basket. It means complete trust in your choice.
Commitment means no more holding back, no more waiting to see it something or someone better will come along, no more complaining about obstacles, and no more waiting for someone else to do it for you.
Commitment is not passive, complacent or hopeful; it’s active and determined. Commitment means getting out there and making the thing happen. It means putting one hundred percent of you on the line and going for it. No obstacles can stop you when you are committed.
The Power of Commitment
When you have chosen someone or something, there is no more confusion or doubt. You have direction, focus, and purpose.
Commitment gives you freedom, and it gives you great power. Commitment gives you freedom, and it gives you great power. Commitment means that you back yourself and you stand totally behind your choices. It also means giving yourself access to all the power in your life.
In conclusion, it means being committed to you and to every area of your life — mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
