I was poking around on Pinterest recently and saw a very inspiring article about a Vietnam veteran who had recently passed away. He had flown his helicopter into enemy territory repeatedly against orders to rescue critically wounded soldiers. Many young servicemen who would have died on the field of battle that day got to go home to their families because of him. That man was committed.
The pages of history, and modern websites as it turns out, are filled with inspiring stories of great men. Truly, they are everywhere if you look. There are the famous ones, like Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, and The Dalai Lama. There are the every-day ones, like my grandfather who went to work every day, paid his bills and loved his family. There are great men everywhere that you have never heard of and have never met, from world leaders to ambulance drivers.
What do these men all have in common? They have committed to something and channeled their energy into it. Great men commit.
Great men are not wishy-washy when it comes to what is important to them.
They focus their energy and it propels them forward to the realization of their goals. They love what they have decided to focus on and they do what they need to do to get where they are going. Ladies, you want one of these!
I don’t want you to spend one more minute trying to figure out how to motivate a man to commit to you or hoping that he comes around. If he disappears, doesn’t call you for five days after a date or says that he is confused, you have your answer. Great men commit. They know what they want. You deserve to have that kind of man.
How, you ask, do I find one? Commit to yourself. Where are you holding back? How does holding back serve you? It is so much easier to think about what the other person is doing wrong than it is to look at yourself. Where might you benefit from changing? If you say that you want a real relationship with a future and then tolerate guys who flake on you then you’re not committing to yourself. Get real. It’s time to upgrade. If you want to have something great in your life, then commit to being great!
Commit today to having the relationship you want. Know that you are worth it and that you’re not settling for less. Then make sure your actions line up with your goals. When someone shows up who is not willing to commit, show him the door and make room for the one who is.
