As I grow up, I understand that determination is an important factor to success. However, every now and then I tend to forget without putting some action, determination wouldn’t be achievable. For me, having an action is driven by my commitment.
Commitment leads to action.
Action brings your dream closer.Marcia Wieder
Few days ago, my niece got a new bicycle. It is a bit big for her age but it was perfect for her height. As she never cycled without training wheels, we had training wheels on her new bicycle.
She trained everyday with training wheels and then without training wheels. Again and again, she fell. She got frustrated and cried. Then, we suggested her to put back the training wheels and she refused every time we have suggested. She was so determined to master the skill. She was committed. She tried and tried. Eventually, she was able cycle for a meter. Then another meter. Then, a bit more. She mastered this skill within few hours that afternoon.
The road to success is through commitment.Will Smith
I got inspired by her commitment that she was determined to master the skill. It reminded me when I was learning cycling. I didn’t hesitate to try again and again. As I got older, I found myself easier to give up, or put things into my ‘Too hard” basket or “I will get to it when I have time” basket.
Too much credit is given to the end result.
The true lesson is in the struggle that takes place between the dream and reality.
That struggle is a thing called life!Garth Brooks
I have a dream. I have to question myself whether I am truly committed to make my dream come true. At the times, I feel I am lost my determination a bit. What shall I do then? I learned to re-determine and commit again. Put into action to work towards my determination.
What are you committed to achieve at the moment?
Have you determined your goal?
Are you a step closer toward achieving your goal?
