We Need Commitment
There are times when we want to do certain things but never get round to doing them. Sometimes by chance, if we have to do it, we find that we have done a good job of it and are highly pleased with ourselves.
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy. There is the chance to draw back and the result is ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans. The moment one commits to oneself, then Providence too, moves to help him. The whole stream of events that follow from the decision assert in one’s favour. Goethe says: Whatever you can do or dream you can; begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic is it.”
All of us have within us inner potential and power to do almost anything. All we need is commitment. To manage others successfully, we need to be able to manage ourselves first. We need to make time for ourselves to go ahead of time and be prepared for any eventualities.
