Commitment from Cause
One of the more overused words and also a concept that few people are able to grasp.
Few of us ever realize what full and true commitment is because we never gain the necessary perspective by having a cause. A cause will show us what we need to do. A cause will show us how deeply we need to dig and how much we are willing to do.
Commitment is only truly realized when you find the cause that resonates within your heart and soul. Commitment is the part of you that you find when you are willing to do whatever it takes to get a result.
So where does one start to discover a cause and learn how to commit.
Start by looking at the things you have done, look within your family, explore hobbies and passions and talk to others you feel are committed in different areas of their lives. You may find others will help you move forward finding something that resonates for you.
The start of this process, and of course you can be committed in many different areas, is the key. The passion that drives you when you discover a cause that gives you energy is what will allow you to take the next steps. The cause is the energy necessary to get the wheel moving. Once it is moving it is hard to slow that wheel down.
Commitment is the willingness to do what ever it takes at any time and under any circumstance.
