Thought of the Day: Commitment

Important to you quote

Committing to something takes words and action. To say that we will commit to something is easy. In fact, when we think about the new lifestyle we want to pursue or the new habit we want to instil, we feel inspired, exhilarated, and enthusiastic; it’s all still in the future. When it comes to actually taking action, we always find a way to deflate that inspiration, exhilaration and enthusiasm: we can’t see the results quick enough, we need the right time for things to be perfect, we expect too much of ourselves from the beginning. Those words that we swore to commit to are achievable. But we need to start looking at things for what they are at this moment and begin by taking action day to day. We are not all the same, we all learn and progress at different rates. We all have setbacks, we all have those days when we want to give up, and we all have times when we need to re-evaluate. Ultimately, what separates us from others is keeping that commitment. Grasp onto that initial inspiration and enthusiasm. That commitment is for you. Strive to be better than yesterday. Push yourself. Take a step back if you have to. Reflect and learn from your mistakes. Re-examine, amend, change the destination. Commitment is a journey, so don’t expect it to be rid of its bends and hills. Just go out there and give it what you have.
