  • CoT: com·mit·ment the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. Are you ready to make a commitment to yourself? We make commitments everyday. Sometimes it seems easier to keep our commitments to others. It’s probably because we don’t want to let them down or have them think poorly of us. If we didn’t come through, we’d probably feel a bit guilty, too. What about making commitments to yourself? What goals are you going to commit to? Making a commitment to achieve a goal, big or small, is the same as making a commitment to someone else. It’s an agreement you make with yourself. But now, there’s no one to disappoint but yourself. To what are you going to commit yourself? Staying committed to achieving your goals, especially in the face of adversity, can be difficult. It’s sometimes easier to just let ourselves down. There’s a sense of obligation when we make a commitment to someone else. We should have that same sense of obligation to ourselves. Making a commitment to achieving a goal may mean giving up something else. Maybe you don’t go out with your friends as often or spend as much time with your family as you’d like. Or you don’t join all the clubs you’re interested in, or play on a sports team. That’s just the way it is. No excuses. Excuses are giving up before you even begin. Keep your goals in sight and commit to them—and to yourself—no matter what. What are you committed to? My Commitment to Myself Put your goals on paper. Here’s an example. It’s up to you to commit to it!

Today, [DATE], I am making a commitment to myself to [GOAL]. I will stay focused and everyday I will do something, big or small, to help me achieve my goal. I will continue even when it seems like it won’t happen or others say I can’t. I will not give up. My goal is to [GOAL] and I am committed to achieving it!
