Commitment is an act, not a word ~ Jean-Paul Sartre
The most basic human instincts are security, happiness and love. None of those items are possible without some level of commitment. Rather to a job, a spouse or to yourself. The level of commitment needs to be healthy in all aspects of your life.
Your commitment to your job is important to provide you the basic necessities of live. However as with anything there is too much of a good thing. When you become so focused on the end result, the monetary implications and business recognition other areas of your life tend to suffer. A healthy balance is absolutely necessary to ensure a positive outcome for your life.
Your commitment to your family is important as well. You must learn to be present in the moments with your loved ones whether that be friends, children, spouses, extended family or other. Not committing to being present in the moment will most certainly cause you to miss out on something extraordinary. So put the computer away, turn off the tablet, remove the smart watch and hide the phone. Just commit to the moment with your loved ones and you will be amazed at the outcome.
Lastly and in my opinion most importantly is the commitment to yourself. Mental, physical, emotional and spiritual commitment will take you further than anything discussed to this point. Again, with moderation. This is not a scenario where what you want is the only thing that matters for that is counterproductive. What I am talking about is learning to commit to yourself and realize that you can not pour from an empty cup. Taking care of your most basic needs as listed above will come back to you ten-fold and will show you the true power of love and happiness when it is coming from within.
Love, Light and Blessings,
