Commit to it
Great accomplishments most often result not from exceptional ability, but from ordinary ability followed through with exceptional commitment. Commitment can elevate even the most ordinary, tedious efforts into truly incredible levels of achievement.
What you’re able to do doesn’t really matter much unless you actually do it. It is in the doing, the commitment, the effort undertaken with persistence, that greatness results.
You can dream about success, hope for it, make the best of plans, talking about them with zeal and enthusiasm. Follow through with real, sustained action, and that success will come.
The life you experience today is the result of what you’ve been truly committed to in the past. Your commitments, whatever they may have been, have manifest themselves into your current reality.
You’re always committed to something, whether it is watching four hours of television each night or running eight miles each morning. Your true commitments are evidenced by your actions.
What in the world would you truly like to do, to be, to experience, to accomplish? Commit to it, and make it happen.
