THE ROAD TO COMMITMENT OR COMPROMISE?
“If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want and all that is left is compromise.”
Until you commit to your dreams, you haven’t started to make them happen. If you’re not fully committed, you’ll tolerate too many reasons to quit that will throw you off track. True change begins when you commit to becoming your future self. 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. Desire is where commitment starts. Desire grows into commitment. Commitment requires determination. And determination requires belief in yourself. You can believe in yourself because you will find a way. Solve any problem. Overcome any setback. Many people who quit their dreams do so because they give in to fear. People crave certainty, and if they can’t see their full path laid out, they give in to their fears and take the clear path to a non-dream. They compromise to hide their fear. A decision to compromise is a good option when the stronger party can concede some merit to the position of the other, or when a compromise may improve the level of cooperation and investment from the weaker party. Your first step to success is being able to recognize what’s worth compromising on and what isn’t–and for that, you’ll need to look at dimensions of significance, relevance, and personal investment. There’s no one right answer for anything.
