At some point … every cherished commitment … residing in the chambers of our heart will be challenged or threatened … by our inner-demons … a seductive distraction … a category-five shit storm … the sabotaging gremlins are infinite … each mandated to expose the mettle of our commitment … if it is unconditional … we will dig deep and find the means … to hold on, renew our vows, strengthen our resolve … if our commitment is conditional … the mere whiff of discomfort, inconvenience, uncertainty … insecurity … will goad us to abandon ship … no worries my friend … it’s a pretend commitment … a pretender pretending … it isn’t real … it never was.
~ Judit e. Szabo
My primary relationship is with myself—all others are mirrors of it.
As I learn to love myself, I automatically receive the love and appreciation
that I desire from others. If I am committed to myself and to living
my truth, I will attract others with equal commitment. My willingness
to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy
with another. As I learn to love myself, I receive the love I desire from others.

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.
It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions.
And the actions which speak louder than the words.
It is making the time when there is none.
Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year.
Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things.
It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.
~ Abraham Lincoln
To change anything we must be absolutely clear about what it is that we are committed to experiencing, accomplishing or attaining. Clarity of vision defines our focus while a blurry vision will undoubtedly give us random results.
~ Judit e. Szabo
There is a difference between interest and commitment.
When you’re interested in something, you do it only when it’s convenient.
When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.
~ Kenneth H. Blanchard
