Making a Commitment

The definitions of commitment in Websters Online Dictionary that are intended within the OneRoad Traveled writings are:

  1. The trait of sincere and steadfast fixity of purpose.
  2. The act of binding yourself to a course of action.

Commitment is sincere, not half-hearted. Commitment is steadfast and binding, not just a willingness to start. Commitment is made by personal choice, not by yielding to pressure from others. Commitment is continuing action, not just a feeling.

Commitment is surrounded by dedication, resolve, perseverance, and purpose.
