Step up to commitment

There are those who are curious about achieving something great. There are those who are interested. There are those who plan. There are those who dream. There are those who talk about it. There are those who criticize. There are those who look forward to it. There are those who wish. There are those who watch.

Then there are those who are totally committed to getting it done, and who demonstrate that commitment every moment with their thoughts and actions. The difference between excellence and mediocrity is commitment. The path that runs from the dream to the achievement is paved with commitment, every inch of the way.

Those who make the commitment, those who give their dreams the power of focused action, are the ones who will achieve their dreams. No matter how worthy, admirable or fiercely desired the goal may be, it takes commitment and action to make it a reality.

If you’re curious, if you’re interested, if you’re thinking and dreaming and planning, take that powerful step up to being committed. Make those hopes and dreams count for something. Make them happen.

— Ralph Marston
