Commitment is being dedicated to do things even when you don’t want to persistently, patiently, and playfully. Having a commitment to something doesn’t have to be hard, in fact it can actually be pleasant because you are doing something you really believe in.
We cannot live up to our fullest potential until we fully commit. It doesn’t matter if it is a diet, a budget, or spending five minutes engaging in your mindfulness practice. We need to commit to become bigger than our excuses, problems, circumstances, unfairness, etc. The Japanese proverb says, committed people are willing to fall down seven times and get up eight.
