There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses - only results.
Be not diverted from your duty by any idle reflections the silly world may make upon you, for their censures are not in your power and should not be at all your concerns.
Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the right stuff to turn our dream into reality.
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.
Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It's something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success.
There is a point at which everything becomes simple and there is no longer any question of choice, because all you have staked will be lost if you look back. Life's point of no return.
Never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
Sir Winston Churchill
There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either in or out. There's no such thing as a life in-between.
By hero, we tend to mean a heightened man who, more than other men, possesses qualities of courage, loyalty, resourcefulness, charisma, above all, selflessness. He is an example of right behavior; the sort of man who risks his life to protect his society's values, sacrificing his personal needs for those of the community.
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.

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.

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
