The Keys to Successful Commitment


Commitment in life is something that a lot of people struggles with, but everyone pursues and wants, no matter what kind of commitment it is. To have success in life (no matter what it looks like), one must have commitment. Commitment to see things through to the end, through good or ill. But what exactly does commitment look like and requires to have?

Commitment needs to be intentional and requires a lot of thought and prioritizing. To commit to something, one needs to know just what all they are committing to and to decide beforehand if they can handle everything involved.    

Commitment also requires learning new things and perhaps going “against the grain.” To commit, one needs an “open mind” not a “closed mind.” 

Commitment requires an ability to share and reach out. A lot of the goals that people commit to are not things that can be done alone but require “sharing the burden.” This means that commitment requires one to be able to work with others and to also be able to ask for help and to know when help is required.

There are other necessities to having and understanding commitment, but these three are from my experiences and observations the main ones. They are the “keys” that are a must to have commitment. What are your thoughts on the subject? Do you see these “keys” to successful commitment when you commit to something? Do you see other “keys” to either add or take the place of these ones? Please share what you think on the subject.
