Quotes on Commitment

~ Steve Maraboli

“Commitment frees you rather than traps you, what traps you is being afraid to commit”

“While attachment has its source in the personality, in what the Buddhists refer to as the “desire nature,” commitment comes from the soul. In relationship to life, just as in human relationships, attachment closes down options, commitment opens them up…..Attachment leads farther and farther into entrapment. Commitment, though it may sometimes feel constricting, will ultimately lead to greater degrees of freedom….Attachment is a reflex, an automatic response which often may not reflect our deepest good. Commitment is a conscious choice, to align ourselves with our most genuine values and our sense of purpose.”
~ Rachel Naomi Remen

“I’m afraid of committing myself,” she thought to herself. She wanted to follow all possible paths and so ended up following none.”
~ Paulo Coelho, Brida

“You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers.”

“It is the one who accepts commitment who is strong. The true commitment is the artistic one. This is why artists are so often attacked. They are attacked for their morals, for their ideas – even for their work. Yet their essence – their commitment – is the secret which is unassailable. The true artist knows that creativity is its own reward. Ordinary people fear commitment, you see. Ordinary people fear creativity. They know that if they allow that seething cauldron of yellow liquid to boil over within themselves, then their whole lives will be changed. People fear change. People do not wish to be creative and artistic in any real sense. They wish to decorate, perhaps, and to make things around themselves pleasant – but this has little to do with creativity. … All spiritual paths should be creative. Creativity is involved with sacrifice. That stew of yellow liquid which boils in everyone is a sacrificial broth …”
~ Mark Hedsel

“Courage is the commitment to begin without any guarantee of success.”
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Without commitment, you cannot have depth in anything, whether it’s a relationship, a business or a hobby.”
~  Neil Strauss

“Freedom is not the absence of commitment, and to be committed to something or to someone does not mean the loss of freedom. But freedom exists in the realm of the unbound and to be free is to be committed to that which is a part of the unbound realm. Whatever sets your soul to flight is freedom. If someone sets your soul to flight, to stay with that person is not to lose freedom but to stay with that person is to retain freedom. Together you have what is unbound. Whatever will swell your spirit and give you wings, is freedom, and it is a fault if you let go of that for the very reason that you are afraid of losing your freedom and in doing so you have in fact let go of what will keep you unbound.”
~ C. JoyBell C.

“The future depends on what you do today.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

“You just gotta jump in and be scared with it until it gets fun.”
~ Luke Danes, Gilmore Girls
