A person with half volition goes backwards and forwards, but makes no progress on even the smoothest of roads.
A total commitment is paramount to reaching the ultimate in performance.
A winner makes commitment. A loser makes promises.
All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man had taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first.
Carry on any enterprise as if all future success depended on it.
Competing in sports has taught me that if I'm not willing to give 120 percent, somebody else will.
Decide that you really want to achieve the goal…
Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.
Drink nothing with out seeing it; sign nothing without reading it.
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.
I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell — you see, I have friends in both places.
I like villains because there's something so attractive about a committed person — they have a plan, an ideology, no matter how twisted. They're motivated.
I remember committing myself to make it in the garbage business, ''whatever it takes!''
If you don't invest very much, then defeat doesn't hurt very much and winning is not very exciting.
If you make the unconditional commitment to reach your most important goals, if the strength of your decision is sufficient, you will find the way and the power to achieve your goals.
If you want to take your mission in life to the next level, if you're stuck and you don't know how to rise, don't look outside yourself. Look inside. Don't let your fears keep you mired in the crowd. Abolish your fears and raise your commitment level to the point of no return, and I guarantee you that the Champion Within will burst forth to propel you toward victory.
It is only when you despair of all ordinary means, it is only when you convince it that it must help you or you perish, that the seed of life in you bestirs itself to provide a new resource.
It's no accident many accuse me of conducting public affairs with my heart instead of my head. Well, what if I do? Those who don't know how to weep with their whole heart don't know how to laugh either.
It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.
My satisfaction comes from my commitment to advancing a better world.
