“You cannot conquer what you are not committed to.” T.D. Jakes
Dreaming has always been a way to make life more exciting and meaningful. Just thinking about the future and all the possibilities of what we can accomplish, gives us a greater sense of purpose and hope. Think about the biggest dream you have? Have you ever thought about the work you will have to put in to accomplish it? What are you doing today to get you closer to reaching that dream?
I sometimes sit and wonder why is it that so many people have these amazing dreams that they want to accomplish one day, yet very few people are actually making the commitment to put in the work and go after them. I also think about the people that have accomplished their dream and how they were willing to make the commitment to sacrifice and work hard to actually accomplish that dream. It really doesn’t matter where you come from or how you start if you make a commitment everyday to work towards your dream you will one day be able to see it become reality. Commitment is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. We can only truly accomplish our dreams if we are committed to go after them.
Commitment is the little choices every day that lead to the final results we’re striving for.” Anonymous
