The Creed of Commitment

Last Update: July 03, 2016

In most cases, when someone hears the word "commitment," the mind immediately wonders to love and marriage.

The nervousness of making that leap into responsibility and accountability not only for yourself, but for your impending spouse and future offspring. You may find yourself fighting the intimidation of knowing that every decision that you make can and will impact others in direct relation to you.

Maybe you have already crossed that barrier and found that it wasn't as hard as imagined and that you fell into this role quite easily.

All of the work and time that you have invested has made you and your spouses life quite emotionally successful. Of course, that is something to be quite proud of.

Now, apply that to your business.

Yes, your business is a commitment as well.

What we do here at Wealthy Affiliate can only be called a "hobby" if we lack the commitment. Only when we commit ourselves, it becomes a "business."


As with what you do with marriage, apply the same rules to business. Look back at the bumps and valleys that you encountered and learned from within your relationship, we all have had them.

You encounter many bumps and valleys in learning how to run a business.

(If your not married, look at some of your past relationships.)


Only when you commit to something, that "something" gains value.

Have you not committed something to yourself?

Do you not think that you are valuable?


Make that commitment to yourself and to your business!

Your success depends on it!


Have a creative and productive day!


All my best,

First positive inward commitment to yourself then outward commitment to others. Universal concept that works everywhere.

I agree, Greg. Commitment is what gets the job done, and when you make the commitment, excuses are not an option. Thanks for the post, and have an awesome day.

Commitment is very important in achieving any goals that you have. You will never see any through unless you are commited to them. Thank you, Greg
