Forgiveness is choosing to love. It is the first skill of self-giving love.

Fully committed

Taking action without being fully committed to it can be worse than taking no action at all. Because your efforts will be largely wasted when you’re hesitant about them or resistant to them.

Ultimately, it’s your choice whether to act or not. Yet once you make the choice to act, follow it with your full commitment.

You must have yourself on your own side if you intend to make any progress. You won’t get very far if you’re working against your own doubt or resentment.

If you’re going to do it, commit yourself fully to it. Commitment is a decision you make for yourself, regardless of the circumstances, regardless of whose idea it was originally.

Commitment means putting your heart into whatever you’re doing. If you have no desire to be fully committed, then you really have no reason to merely go through the motions.

Instead of fighting against your own resistance, be supported and lifted, pushed forward by your own commitment. It will make the difference between failure and success.

— Ralph Marston
