How to Succeed through Commitment
Commitment can be described as persistence with a purpose. It is one of the most important determinants of success. Commitment ignites and informs our action and it is the force that makes things happen.
Your level of commitment plays a key role in the process of creating a fulfilling life. When people are under committed, they tend to get lousy results. When they get clear about what they want and commit themselves to creating it, however long it takes, they usually get there in some fashion.
How do you know how committed you are? You can tell by your actions, by what you consider important enough to carve out time for. Commitment is mental and emotional.
It is an internal decision and is not something that can be forced from outside. Commitment occurs when your thoughts and emotions are pointing in the same direction and are in alignment. If you make a mental decision but do not feel comfortable about it, you’re not committed. If you make an emotional decision that does not sit well with your intellect, you are not committed. The only real commitments are those that fully engage both your mind and emotions.
Successful people have commitment as a common trait. It is their resolve to stick to their plan and support group that separates them from the ordinary person. Here are a few action steps to help you practice commitment and succeed
Plan to Succeed Through Commitment
1. Create a plan to change habits and set daily disciplines that lead to your goal, Set up rewards to make it fun.
2. Add a support structure. Find a friend and commit to helping each other achieve defined goals. Reinforce accountability by meeting weekly.
3. Spend quality time with your close family and appreciate each and every moment you spend with them. Tell them that you appreciate them, you enjoy spending time with them and enjoy doing things together

That sounds about right. You're only as committed in something as you make time for it. Otherwise, you are just telling people you are committed in it to look more focused in their eyes, which is not sustainable.
On the point about accountability, there sure are many creative ways to create accountability that don't make the accountability-seeker look weak.
