Commitment | June 28, 2011

This is from an email newsletter that I get, I loved this one so much that I wanted to share it:

“This might sound easy, but commitment is more than just a word. Commitment is an action towards success.

“Most people assume that they first have to figure everything out and only then will they commit. The issue is they then never seem to get around to it. Even if they figure it out and are ready to commit, that original opportunity then no longer exists or someone else has already taken claim to it.

“Committing first means getting 100 percent behind whatever it is you are committing to before you figure out every detail. Sure it may be risky to commit first and then, turnaround to figure the rest out later, but it is my absolute belief that creativity and problem solving are stimulated only after a person fully commits. Preparation, details, and training are still critical, but the challenges you face in life will require you to act before you determine how to make everything turn out right.

“Remember, it‘s not necessarily the smartest and brightest who win in the game of life but rather those who can commit the most passionately to their cause.”

Another Look at Commitment

“But when I said that nothing had been done I erred in one important matter. We had definitely committed ourselves and were halfway out of our ruts. We had put down our passage money–booked a sailing to Bombay. This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”

from The Scottish Himalaya Expedition by W. H. Murray, 1951

So…

Are you committed?

Are you willing to do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true?

Till next time!
