#DailyWritingChallenge Day 83: Commitment

noun. the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity; an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action.
Being committed is a bond. It is a bond to a person, a thing or an idea.
“Without commitment, you cannot have depth in anything, whether it’s a relationship, a business or a hobby”.
Neil Strauss
Being committed is active. It is something we do.
“Commitment is an act, not a word”.
Jean-Paul Sartre  
Being committed is a promise, a pledge that is not broken. It is a non-negotiable.
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it when it’s convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results”.
Kenneth Blanchard
Being committed is future-focused. It is the act of converting what we think into what we say, what we promise into what we do.
“Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the right stuff to turn our dream into reality”.
James Womack 
Being committed is solutions-focused. It is being focused on the goal and navigating the journey around any barriers or obstacles in our way.
“When confronted with a challenge, the committed heart will search for a solution. The undecided heart searches for an escape”.
Andy Andrews    
Being committed is being driven. It is about being all-in, no conditions.
“There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either in or you’re out. There’s no such thing as a life in-between”.
Pat Riley
Being committed is saying “I will” but actually making what ever you have pledged or promised to happen, actually happen.
