And as for the final sphere of love and friendship, I can only say it gets harder once the natural communities of college and hometown are gone... It takes work and commitment, demands toleration for human frailties, forgiveness for the inevitable disappointment and betrayals that come even with the best of relationships.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Any man's life will be filled with constant and unexpected encouragement if he makes up his mind to do his level best each day.
Booker T. Washington
There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either in or out. There's no such thing as a life in-between.
Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the right stuff to turn our dream into reality.
Without commitment, you cannot have depth in anything, whether it's a relationship, a business or a hobby.
There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no really insurmountable barrier save our own inherent weakness of purpose.
Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where there are vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner commitment. The response to the challenges of life—purpose—is the healing balm that enables each of us to face up to adversity and strife.
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.
Peter F. Drucker
There's a difference between interest and commitment. 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.
Commitment, by its nature, frees us from ourselves and, while it stands us in opposition to some, it joins us with others similarly committed. Commitment moves us from the mirror trap of the self absorbed with the self to the freedom of a community of shared values.

Simple Acts Of GratitudeSubmitted by Anonymous
This summer I directed my first theatre production. When I started, I had no idea how much time and energy such a task would require. My entire July month was filled with late-night sewing, constant rehearsals, and the utter stress and worry of our progress. I felt tired and overworked. The weekend before...
Stories About Everyday Heroes Who Portray ‘Commitment’
John F. KSubmitted by Eric Raushel
JFK is my hero because he worked non-stop for a stretch of time to ensure the safety of the American people. Let’s say that JFK ignored the evidence of the Cubans building a nuclear weapon site. Think of how many people would have died. Would any of us still be alive? He not only worked for me, but for everyone...

If you had asked me ten years ago who my hero was, I would have definitely busted out with my mom. However, now I would have to say my best friend. I will have to back this story up to when I was eight years old. The year was 1972. One summer day there were three little boys playing across the street from my...

I am full of hope to see a site like this to encourage such a powerful message. Let us commit to understanding one another and allowing each other to live with an acceptable level of freedom. I am committed to my children knowing good from bad and value goodness. In today's world they need to be kind but capable.
Imani is my hero because she saved me from commiting suicide two years ago. Because of her I met my beautiful wife and now we have 2 amazing little girls and we love them to death.
Andrew Moreno, Ohio
As a part-time musician, I had told my wife that I would alternate using gig pay to buy musical equipment with contributing to family expenses. There was one piece of equipment I really wanted and I got paid well at a show last night. I realized I had used the last show's pay for equipment, so I steeled myself up and donated to an upcoming family trip instead. Because this was hard, I know I have a lot of work to do to become a good person. But that's what I want to do.
Sheldon Shaffer, Bowling Green, KY

Commitment is to press through till we see it happen.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga
I am commited to raising my four children to always be in awe of the beautiful ways of God. My four young children have gone through a lot in these past 8 years. My former problems, moving from Texas to california and there has been little to no complaining and I thank God that before and during these hard times I have seen that bringing them up in the right way is paying off. We aren't where we want to be, but we are far from where we used to be. Two years clean, with my mind stayed on my Savior, and my heart full of His love, I truly NOW lead by example. Sincerely, Commited Daddy-Son-Friend
