The road to commitment or compromise?

BY ADMIN PUBLISHED February 19, 2022, UPDATED December 2, 2022

The whole concept of commitment gets challenged when one stops conforming and decides to start exploring new directions. Can I stay committed to what is ‘now’ if I explore what might be? It can be hard to see beyond the ‘now’ and the value an exploration might bring. It’s easy to fall back into the ‘what I know now’ and never move forward.

Being committed here, we do whatever it takes, becoming willing to make personal trade-offs and taking responsibility for co-creating reality. We put ourselves on the line to reach key objectives and goals to bring about a vision or future.

If something is worth doing in every aspect of life, it’s worth giving 100% of your effort to it. Because a 99% commitment isn’t going to cut it. Why is it that 100% commitment is the key to success, while even a 99% commitment is a recipe for failure? Is there that drastic a difference between a person who is 100% committed and someone who is 99% committed?

The answer is yes. There’s a huge difference. you see, there is no gray area when it comes to commitment. Either you are fully committed or you are not. When a person is 100% committed, they are unwavering. They aren’t going to let anything get in between them and their commitment. But a person who is only 99% committed leaves open a window—however small—for their convictions to falter. And, given enough time, the convictions of someone who isn’t 100% committed almost always DO falter.
