Making a clear and definite commitment is the secret to making the Universe deliver your goals, whatever they may be.
The decision to achieve your goal, making your plans, following all the instructions you have read and heard is NOT enough. A decision and belief is not a commitment, it can take you only so far, but not to completion.
Failure brings discouragement. Discouragement destroys the ability to commit.
It is easy to think, talk, draw pictures, make plans and have hopes and dreams, but that is not a commitment, it is only being involved. Involved is not enough.
When people do not make a full and sincere commitment, they are only involved as long as things go well. Without a commitment, they can change their mind at any time, and as soon as things get the slightest bit tough, they do change their mind and give up their goals and dreams.
The reason is that there is no loss if they walk away. But loss must not be a material penalty, that only brings resentment. The loss has to be determined by you when you make the commitment, something that means a lot to you, something emotional. What will you do if you quit before success?
Quality of Your Character
The strength of a commitment indicates the level of integrity of character. Integrity is fast becoming extinct, and with it, the entire magical, infinitely powerful principle of commitment is also disappearing.
We can depend on someone with a strong character far more than just a strong muscular body. Thus, strength of character, for a man or woman, is the sexiest quality, long term.
A true commitment means that you will hold to it with your life, and you are willing to die in its achievement. Certainly you need not die to achieve your goals, but are you that committed? This is the key to success of the great achievers in history. That devotion and willingness to sacrifice for the goal is what separates success from failure.
If you do not make a commitment to yourself, your life, your direction, your goals and of course your LOVE, then nothing can happen other than by chance. Without a firm commitment, you hold your life in a state of limbo, and the universe is not encouraged to start moving forward with you and delivering what you need to achieve your goals.
The Universe is not fool enough to trust just anyone. It tests you first to check the level of your commitment by giving you some obstacles. Depending on your persistence, or lack of, the Universe determines if you are worthy of It putting in the effort to help you in your path.
The same goes for Love. You need to prove that you will be there through the good and bad, the pain and pleasure, to show you have the two qualities that combined make a lasting love; Respect and Admiration.
Another aspect of a true commitment is that there are no conditions. If you say you are committed to something, but you want it to be a certain way, ‘I am committed to making a million dollars a year, but I do not want to work more than 2 hours a week, and I want it to be a nice job where I have lots of prestige and people admire me’, then you are not truly committed to your goal.
True commitment is when your goal is unconditional, without rules, restrictions, or narrow lines to fit in. That is true commitment to a goal. You want it, Her, Him, above all else and you are willing to give or do anything to get it. If there are any strings attached then you are not committed.
Anything short of a true commitment means that things can change and that breeds doubt and fear in your partner. Fear leads to irrational behaviour. Irrational behaviour creates doubt.
Commitments are made and broken as a natural course of affairs. With this daily disappointment, the definition and meaning of a commitment has changed in your mind. You only think you understand what commitment means, because as you make your promise, you know that you can find a way out if you really want to.
That is not a commitment, and that is why you have not found LOVE in your heart or life. Commitment means you are committed to your goal and you will work on yourself, reflect, open your mind and heart, and truly understand, BEFORE you just decide to leave.
