Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.
Author: David Lloyd George (1863-1945)
Profession: British Statesman, Prime Minister
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

The resolved mind hath no cares.
Author: George Herbert (1593-1632)
Profession: British Metaphysical Poet
You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind -- not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement -- but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time.
Author: William E. Holler
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.
Author: Bruce Jenner (1949)
Profession: American Olympian, Actor, Speaker, Entrepreneur, Sports Commentator
Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.
Author: John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)
Profession: Thirty-fifth President of the USA
It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.
The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.
Resolve and thou art free.
Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1819-1892)
Profession: American Poet
Resolve that whatever you do, you will bring the whole man to it; that you will fling the whole weight of your being into it.
The greatest trouble with most of us is that our demands upon ourselves are so feeble, the call upon the great within of us so weak and intermittent that it makes no impression upon the creative energies; it lacks the force that transmutes desires into realities.
This force, which is the best thing in you, your highest self, will never respond to any ordinary half-hearted call, or any milk-and-water endeavor, It can only be reached by your supremest call, your supremest effort. It will respond only to the call that is backed up by the whole of you, not part of you; you must be all there in what you are trying to do. You must bring every particle of your energy, unanswerable resolution, your best efforts, your persistent industry to your task or the best will not come out of you. You must back up your ambition by your whole nature, by unbounded enthusiasm and a determination to win which knows no failure... Only a masterly call, a masterly will, a supreme effort, intense and persistent application, can unlock the door to your inner treasure and release your highest powers.
You know from past experiences that whenever you have been driven to the wall, or thought you were, you have extricated yourself in a way which you never would have dreamed possible had you not been put to the test. The trouble is that in your everyday life you don't go deep enough to tap the divine mind within you.
Decide that you really want to achieve the goal...
