People have difficulty making a commitment to anything. They spend their whole lives going from one thing to another, looking for a quick and easy way to success, or else they just settle for something less than their dreams. Many people make a half-hearted commitment to some- thing, and tell themselves they are making a total commitment. Then they see something better somewhere else; the grass looks greener in a new business or job. They commit for a little while to something new. Then they get tired of that business, too, and they’re off again to something else.
Now, I don’t believe that you have just one chance to do something great in your life, but I don’t believe that you get an unlimited number of chances, either. Sometime in your life, you’ve got to stop running. You’ve got to say, “Now, this is it. This is a good opportunity and I’m going to take it all the way. This time, I’m going to stand and fight until I win.”
When you finally make that total commitment, nothing in your life will be the same. Maybe for the first time, you’ll have a real direction in your life, a purpose forgetting up in the morning and working hard every day. When you see everything you do as one more step toward reaching the goals you’ve committed to, no task seems too big or too small.
