What is commitment? Commitment is making a choice to move ahead with a plan of action or intention without giving yourself a back door. Commitment is getting off the fence about something and making a decision that you then stick to. Commitment is finally taking that step of no return towards something you have only been dreaming of. Commitment requires eliminating the safety net of “I’ll do it if”, or “I’ll do it when”, and moving through the fear that holds you in the state of ambivalence, confusion and feeling stuck.
