Commitment: The state of being dedicated to an activity

Whenever I hear the word commitment, my first thought is that of admiration, as it “oh so easy” to have a non-committal attitude to anything in life, especially if it is in the ‘too hard’ basket. Over the years through my personal development courses taken with Landmark Worldwide, I have really established some true commitments which I know I will carry to my grave. One such commitment is my stand for World Peace by 2020. Over years since, I declared my engagement to World Peace on ‘live television’, what has shown up for me is this sense of certainty for who I needed to be, to fulfill on my stand. What has been obvious too are the moments when I have dropped my stand and not occurred as “World Peacy!”...ooops and hey, minor breakdowns I declare!

Commitment: An obligation that restricts freedom of action

Well, there’s a new angle in the inquiry! I can see that when one is focused and taking action to fulfill on one’s commitment, a loose fluid demeanor may not be the ideal way to achieve the goals of one’s promise. It is with an obligation that one can see openings for actions that align with one’s commitment. One of the outcomes I never saw when I completed the Landmark Forum back in October 1993 was the new domain of a “laser vision”. Indeed, as stated in an analysis of the Landmark Forum made by social scientist Daniel Yankelovich, 89% of 1300 surveyed, reasoned to ‘be more committed/motivated and pursue what is important to them’.

Until one is committed...

W.H. Murray Scottish Mountaineer of Everest has been quoted in several of my seminars as follows:

‘Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred … ‘Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”

I invite you to share your commitments below and be empowered by the courage it takes to share oneself! World Citizen #WP2020
