The Power of Commitment

“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” – Zig Ziglar

Below is an excerpt from the Scottish Himalayan Expedition by W.H. Murray.

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 otherwise

never have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues

from the decision, raising in one’s favor

all manner of unforeseen incidents

and meetings and material assistance,

which no man could have dreamed

would have come his way.
