Building Commitment



The following quotations have always kept me focused on achieving everything that I desired in life. This is what I live my life by and it has given me a whole lot in my life. Stay focused and committed to a cause to achieve desired results.

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Failure is then just around the corner.''

"Objectives are not fate; they are direction. They are not commands; they are commitments. They do not determine the future; they are means to mobilize the resources and energies of the business for the making of the future."

''Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek.''

"Something in human nature causes us to start slacking off at our moment of greatest accomplishment. As you become successful, you will need a great deal of self-discipline not to lose your sense of balance, humility, and commitment."

Nothing comes easy. Stop dreaming about any success if you are not going to be committed to taking massive action. If you function like any normal employee, you will forever be a normal employee. Choose to be different.

I do believe that every single action we take can have a big impact.If we do it great and practice them everyday,we might just change the world!

Commitment is very important. It shows how strong you hold onto what you believe in. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.

Desire, Focus,Commitment and Determination are parts of the main key to achieved our Dream and Target...
Dream will just remain as a dream without it...

Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the "right stuff" to turn our dreams into reality...

eb said...

Look at it from the aspect of life.. how does one committed if one does not have desire, objective, determination, motivation and direction?

SS said...

gCommitment equals to Responsibility we have in whatever we do. How much commitment from a person can be viewed from how responsible a person towards things they do. Do not push away responsibility to someone else to cover ourself in trouble. This shows how committed we are in work and life.

Garret said...

So very true. Surprisingly most people out there do not really know what they want or not having an idea of where they're heading. That leads to uncertainty, confusion, and hesitancy in the decisions they make. Desire and passion is crucial but this goes out to those who haven't figured out what they want and is troubled by it... being committed to what you're already doing will equally take you far. People have done it by building commitment, so can you.

KL said...

NM said...

Dessy B said...

It should always starts as a dream, with a little bit of faith driven by desire to commit our senses and turns actions into accomplishment.

crayongal said...

totally agree with SS.
If everything we do in life, problem ALWAYS people at fault, it is soo easy to see how REAL is the commitment.
Pushing away responsibility always done by INCOMPETENT and IRRESPONSIBLE people.

heriany said...

Majorities of Gen Y now like to dream and only want to be comfortable. Dreaming is not enough in order to succeed in life. We need to work smart and deliver result. It will show that we're committed employee.

dilla said...

With commitment comes responsibilities and until the person still not committed to something,the desired results would not be achieved.There will be results but may not be the 'desired' one. And when a person is committed to something,they also must be ready to face whatever consequences ahead, good or bad.
Commitment towards work and commitment towards life.

Ismail said...

Dream will just be a vivid thing if it is not brought forward as a target in life, it is the first step, but it will always be there and stuck there if there's no commitment, desire and focus to acheive it.

MY said...

commitment is indeed necessary in whatever we do. If we are committed in whatever we do, there will be results eventually.

suhailla csc said...

There are many people afraid of commitment,because they avoiding responsibilty..If you have never tasted something, how do you know that you don’t like it?

NEIMA said...

Commitment + Action = Result :)

Anonymous said...

Having a desire without building commitment to achieve the desire is just having a dream without action. Commitment is the key fundamental to every achievement. Commitment is the strength,willingness and involvement to time,space,people and most importantly to oneself. Building commitment is building your dream to reality. And being reality is what made things work. What work is building the commitment inside of oneself to have a strong believe one can change or create anything and to be able to change believe from "impossible" to "I m possible".

This is always be an interesting phrase “Commitment”.

Refer to Longman Dictionary: Commitment means a promise to do something or to behave in a particular way.

No matter in what are we doing in our daily life we always be link back to commitment. Individual that choose not to commit on things that they are up to will not going to get what /where they want to. Commitment require lots of time, effort and action.

Many people say they want to become better, however not many people dare to be different.

KeNg said...

Higher Commitment = higher involvement. So true, not easy to get what you want, it involved a lot effort, intensity, time and sacrifies. What you really want in life?

abby said...

The most important in individual success is COMMITMENT therefore always be commitment and responsibility in what you have do.

Wan Zabani Azizan said...

Every single thing that one does in life requires some amount of commitment. It's just the matter of having it big or small. Being committed to things that we do in life shows what kind of a person we are. One just have to CHOOSE ones' path.

kenzo67 said...

"Something in human nature causes us to start slacking off at our moment of greatest accomplishment."

This holds more truth than anything. It is usually when we are at the crux of success where the journey becomes more challenging and we have a higher tendency to give up. Call it fatigue, call it frustration, call it anything you want. It simply translates to GIVING UP.

Perseverance, perseverance, perseverance. Have this if nothing else.

Sue said...

Many of us dream of having everything that other's have. Some of us will push to get what we dream for. But only a few will put in the commitment, time, energy, passion, endless effort to reach our dreams and turn it to reality..

bob asri said...

well...true and true... u want something, you need to do something. you want something to come to you, you need to chase it first.

Ah Hooi said...

making commitment is easy step, fullfill it is a hardest step! make it happen!

Sandman said...

Everything we do,we must have the commitment and desire to achieve our goal.Not just simply plan but no action.

sailite said...

Commitment ... to be committed to something, you would first need to like it. If it is forced upon you then you better learn how to like it. If you do then involvement becomes easy.You will not need to struggle, you will not need to push yourself and even if you do it wont seem as hard, because you like what you are committed to...So "if you cant do what you like, you better learn how to like what you do" life becomes so much easier then ..

LeadershiAsia said...

some people have all the skills to be successful. but the ego and arrogant taht always pull them down. to be sucessfull is to sustain and grow, whereby this is the most weakness that every individual have.

daniel said...

dream it...
Take ACTION...
& ACHIEVE IT!!!

MS said...

A lot of people love to talk big but not building the commitment. This is where they will fail. Commitment require you to sacrifice something in your life.

High Eagle- "In life, many thoughts are born in the course of a moment, an hour, a day. Some are dreams, some visions. Often, we are unable to distinguish between them. To some, they are the same; however, not all dreams are visions. Much energy is lost in fanciful dreams that never bear fruit. But visions are messages from the Great Spirit, each for a different purpose in life. Consequently, one person's vision may not be that of another. To have a vision, one must be prepared to receive it, and when it comes, to accept it. Thus when these inner urges become reality, only then can visions be fulfilled. The spiritual side of life knows everyone's heart and who to trust. How could a vision ever be given to someone to harbor if that person could not be trusted to carry it out. The message is simple: commitment precedes vision." - so true..once we have committed to something, definitely we will put our passion and desire into it which then will lead to ultimate success
