What Are You Committed To?

What are you committed to? The great idea you said that would define your reality and lead to phenomenal success, are you committed to that idea? Or are you simply infatuated with your thoughts and the possible success outcomes related to that great idea? 

When no one is telling you what to do, when no boss is looking over your shoulder, when you are not on the clock, what are you committed to? 

Here is where the separation between the good and the great begins—between winners and everyone else. 

Winners are driven by what they are committed to. They are driven by their passion. Winners are driven by a sense of purpose.

Are you driven by what you are committed to? If you are committed to a great idea, then that great idea should drive you. And if that idea does not get your juices flowing, if it does not move you to action, then you have chosen the wrong idea or activity—one that is not suited for the phenomenal person you are becoming.


I write every day because writing is what I love doing. Writing is my personal brand, and I am committed to it! Writing allows me to deploy my ridiculously impossible dreams at scale. Writing is the vehicle that enables me to add value to others’ lives. Most of the success I enjoy in life is tied to my passion—writing. 

What are you committed to? What is your passion? You see, the reason many people have not committed themselves to anything is that they are not making their concentric circle better. They keep getting more of the same because they have not identified their raison d’être [reason or justification for being or existence].

So please, stop making excuses. Stop putting your life on hold. Find your passion. Find that vehicle that will put you in a position to experience life’s best. Find your reason for being. 

I have said it before, and I will repeat it. The time we have in our physical form—our time on Earth is fixed. There is no backup feature, delete function, reverse option, or second chance. Life is not a rehearsal, and you only get one chance and one opportunity to live your life on purpose with purpose. There are no second takes. The Universe will not grant you a do-over because you squandered one opportunity after another.

You deserve to live a complete and fulfilling existence. Love yourself enough to make the rest of your life the best of your life.

  2. Great post! It’s a great reminder that we need to have those tough conversations with ourselves. I feel like this resonates a lot with careers that people choose. I, for one, am not passionate about my current career, which is what led me to start a blog in the first place.

  5. “Commitment” is actually the word that has chosen me for this year and has been supporting me. Having that word has made me committed to my writing in a new way And me too I love writing. Great advise. Thank you

  6. Ah, another fantastic read. I hadn’t considered what I was committed to, and I think I may have identified my self-made roadblock. Motivating, inspirational, and something I will definitely carry with me.

  7. Here, here! I am a lot like you. I love writing and am committed to creating popular books that change the way people think about themselves, relationships, and the environment. So I do it every day. And it feeds that special part of me that is uniquely mine.

  8. Wow! I was impressed with your ‘About’ page. Now I’ve just read one of your posts and I am mega-impressed – by that bookcase, by this well-written motivational post and by how articulate you are in the Mindfullness show. No wonder you are so popular!
    You make some excellent observations and have certainly challenged me to up my game.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
    I’d like to reblog this on my A Purpose-driven achiever site.

  9. So very true. We waste time on stuff that does not need our attention. It takes practice, but knowing that we only get one shot at life…we better learn to make the best of it for sure! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. I am laying in bed, as usual…watching the idiot box, something across the room grabs my attention, as I turn my head to look, the little light on my phone is blinking.. as I grab my phone to see that you have just “liked” a post of mine, someone on the idiot box says “Josiah” (I am watching the Bachelorette)
    This is the post the Universe needed me to read, I swear to you the above story just happened, and I truly needed this post in this moment. Synchronicity is real, wow! Thanks for this post, you have my attention now. I swear that was the strangest thing. Ever!

    1. Hi Angi! It is such a beautiful thing how vibrations can travel across time and space and awaken the senses to experience and participate in another person’s essence. This connection that was just formed speaks to the reality that we are both living on a higher plane. Thank you for being mindful. ~Josiah


  11. I was trying to read the titles on the book spines that are on your shelves. Can you help me and tell me what the names are?

    The library shelve in the office usually describes the life of the person who reads the books.

      1. It’s actually really cool that you keep a library with books on shelves. The spines of the books present a mosaic of what matter to you.

        I always like checking out someone else’s book shelf.

  12. An eye-opener for me…. This post is what I need now, as in now! I am in the point in my life wherein I don’t know what to do thus I cannot commit to a certain task. I tend to start on things and don’t follow it thru, thanks for writing this one 🙂 Wish me luck so I can find that spark, passion in things I have already started and some of the things I have in my mind. 🙂
