What Does Commitment Look Like?

‘If you allow external factors to dictate your circumstances and where you are in life, that’s not commitment. That’s simply not making an active choice.’

We can probably associate commitment with eliminating the ‘want-s’ and adopting the ‘must-s’ instead. That is a close enough description, but there is no reason why what we want can’t be turned into a necessary action.

You may have noticed that external factors seem to dictate more what you do in life rather than your internal desire for success. You’d more likely meet a deadline at work or graduate because your parents expected this of you, rather than pursuing your passion in life. What it takes is linking what YOU want to the thought and feeling of urgency.

A deadline you set for yourself is just as a good of a deadline – if not better – than what is imposed on you and expected of you. If you allow external factors to dictate your circumstances and where you are in life, that’s not commitment. That’s simply not making an active choice.

Not making an active choice equals allowing everyone to steal time away from you. If you’d decide to commit to something, what would it be?
