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.
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.
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.
Without commitment, you cannot have depth in anything, whether it's a relationship, a business or a hobby.
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'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.
Peter F. Drucker
Norman Vincent Peale
There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either in or you're out. There's no such thing as life in-between.

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.

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
