The purpose of commitment
Clarity and focus = power
In black and white, in writing
Where to put the agreements for reminding yourself
Some agreements and commitments re:
THE PURPOSE OF COMMITMENT
"A person with half volition goes backwards and forwards, but makes no progress on even the smoothest of roads."
The purpose of commitment is to create the results you want in life. If you want to be effective in life, you MUST use the power of commitment.
"Until one is committed, there is no progress..."
CLARITY AND FOCUS = POWER
The clarity and the focus offered by commitment creates a powerful force to get greater results and to live the life one dreams of. Without it, we languish or do something more in the mediocre or not-quite-so-happy range.
Add this practice to your other "Power In Life" elements and you'll magnify your power to get what you want in life.
IN BLACK AND WHITE
Not commiting in writing results in no success and no clarity of action.
Commitments in your head are illusory and weak and ineffective. Make them all in writing - and share them with another person for accountability (which is also one of the Power In Life elements).
Read, in the sidebar, "The Power Of Commitment", Declaration, by W.H. Murray, of the Scottish Himalayan Expedition.
Read also Kennedy's Man On The Moon Speech, where I've bolded and italicized what I believe you can add to your mission statement and the boldness of your commitment.
WHERE TO PUT THE AGREEMENTS FOR REVIEW
I would, for now, keep the two quotes above in the Reminders Notebook, where you should review them until they are fully integrated into your brain and are instantly recallable. You could keep them in your LifePlan Notebook later.
