Committing to a Goal

As usual, Steve Pavlina hits the nail on the head in this excellent article about cause and effect. You know those times in your life when you have been truly, truly ready to make a change and that change seemed to flow out of you almost effortlessly. This concept of being “ready” or committed is clearly the key ingredient to success for any goal:

“Time and again I’ve seen evidence that not only people, but the universe itself, can sense a lack of commitment to a goal. Have you ever heard someone tell you about a goal of theirs, and you can just sense how wishy-washy and uncertain they are about it? They say things like, “Well, I’m going to try this and see how it goes. Hopefully it will work out OK.” Is that evidence that a clear decision has been made? Not remotely. Are you going to help this person? Probably not — who wants to waste their time on someone who isn’t committed?”

Be sure to read the whole thing.
