Make the commitment

How do you transform what you think you can do into what you know you can do? You make the commitment to get it done.

How do you take something that you’d like to have and make it into something you actually do have? You make the commitment to make it happen.

Choose your commitments carefully, based on what’s truly important to you, and on what will positively push you beyond your limitations. And then once you make a commitment, treat it as a true commitment, doing whatever is necessary to fully follow through.

Take your commitments seriously. Give them the priority they deserve.

Well-chosen commitments will demand much from you. In meeting those demands, you grow stronger, more capable, highly experienced and resilient.

Commit to just a few things at a time that you know will bring out the best in you. Then work your way through those commitments to higher and higher levels of achievement and fulfillment.

— Ralph Marston
