What does commitment mean to you?
Why would you want to commit to someone or something and if you did who or what would it be?
Abraham Lincoln expressed commitment beautifully when he wrote the following:-
Commitment is what transforms the promise into reality.
It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions.
And the actions which speak louder than the words.
It is making the time when there is none.
Coming through time after time after time,
Year after year after year.
Commitment is the stuff character is made of;
The power to change the face of things.
It is the daily triumph of integrity over scepticism.
I love Lincolns’ interpretation of commitment as it puts a beautiful perspective on this strong and powerful action. Embracing and allowing commitment into our lives, allows us to live with purpose and integrity. Commitment comes before success and is the vehicle which will drive you to your desires and goals.
I believe the first person or thing we make a commitment to, is to ourselves. Having a belief in ourselves and living congruently to our values, knowing we are powerful beings here to experience life to the fullest. Living and speaking from our heart, the words and actions of love. Being committed to who we truly are and living and embracing our authenticity. Having commitment in our self allows us to tread our path, share truth and experiences with others and gives us more appreciation of our fellow man, our environment and our planet Earth.
The Benefits of Commitment
You will create a habit that will become stronger each time you choose to commit and you will experience your life living on purpose. Making a commitment is a gift to yourself and gives you the choice in realizing your full potential. You will have an awareness of the possibilities and opportunities available to you each moment.
We can embrace commitment with small steps
• I choose to commit to my health may mean ensuring you drink 8 glasses of water a day and become aware of the fuel you are feeding your body.
• I choose to commit to embracing my personal development may mean enrolling in a course or reading a book on a subject you are interested in.
• I choose to commit to connecting more with others may begin by taking time to chat with the shop assistant, listening to what others are saying or assisting others with their day to day tasks.
So now, as you take the first steps to committing to having an even better life and choosing to take action to reach you full potential, imagine yourself in 3 months’ time, and then 6 months’ time and even 12 months’ time, the difference embracing commitment has made to your life.
