Study this quote!
"Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans : that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: 'Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.' "

Commitment is the spark that ignites the fire. Commitment is the key that starts the engine. When one draws a line in the sand and declares, "I am committed to do this, whatever it takes, for however long it takes." then an invisible signal is sent out, like a radio beacon, resonating with whatever resources necessary to complete the task.
These resources begin to "materialise" as if by magic. Ideas begin to flow. Time slows down or speeds up to accommodate. People suddenly arrive as if summoned.
How does this happen?
Have you ever played with a tuning fork? When you tap the fork, it begins to vibrate and hum, sending out sound vibrations of a specific pitch through the air around it. If you place another tuning fork nearby, collaborated to the same note, the second fork picks up on this vibration and slowly begins to hum and vibrate in harmony with the first fork. If the second tuning fork is not pitched to the same note, it does not vibrate.
Now, we ALL send out silent and invisible signals. Most of the time, these signals are weak and unfocused. However when you reach a certain level of commitment, the intensity of your vibrations increases with more focus (focus being the most important catalyst), these signals become strong and a unavoidable magnet to the resources you need and the people around you. Your spirit, your soul, your life force or whatever you want to call it, begins to vibrate at a higher frequency. These vibrations, like invisible radio signals, are picked up unconsciously by everyone you meet. The message is subtle but clear....I am committed.
When your committed, your mind and body are energized by the passion of your purpose.
A commitment is a pledge, promise or resolution. It's the instant moment when you decide to give your full dedication and heart and soul to the fulfillment of something that you have thought of.
It makes you put yourself in a situation where you will never turn back. You are serious and have your vision only fixed on your purpose. You will move ahead in spite of doubts and risks because you have made an obligation to yourself to follow through and keep your word.
When these characters and traits are combined with self discipline, people succeed in getting rid of bad habits or attitudes, change direction, reach their goals and achieve their dreams. Dreams that can be simple as learning how to cook, being a body attack instructor, owning a home/house or being a millionaire.
Making a commitment...
1. Fix your purpose and then state your intention - write it down, say it out loud, believe it.
2. See it, visualise it - begin to power the mind with your purpose, and it will stimulate you to where you want to be, and become
3. Give your full attention - Nothing is achieved without focus, make those signals you send out strong and unavoidable to other people
4. Discipline - Make progress despite doubts, fears and insecurities. Remember to push through these points in your cycle and that being uncomfortable is a sign of progress, as we are not standing still in comfort.
5. Persist - No goal is unachievable, our minds make it this.
6. Kings Throne - You have reached your goal, now is time to ensure you remain humble.
"It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through." - Zig Ziglar
