15.) “They say that people are innately afraid of those who need them, they say that people are afraid of ‘clingy-ness’, afraid of attachment, afraid of being needed by another. But I beg to disagree. I believe that people, when looking at someone who is needy of them, see themselves and see their own fears and they go away because they can’t handle those fears; it’s their own neediness that they’re afraid of! They’re afraid to want and to need, because they’re afraid of loss and of losing, so when they see these things in another, that’s when they run away. Nobody is actually running away from other people; everybody is really running away from themselves!” – C. JoyBell

It is a rare find.”— Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

Which one of these amazing commitment quotes is your favorite?

Commitment is the difference between a goal and a wish. Anybody can have a hope and wish, but what matters most is the resolve to make it happen. Most get started, but very few finish. When we carry out and develop a healthy obsession with an idea, we become more confident, creative and courageous!

Your success is determined by your work, not your market. The amount of effort you put into your work is just as important – or even more – than the work you choose to do. Don’t focus on the immediate result; that’s the formula for quitting. Focus on your commitment and results will come.

Success is not a rushed process. You can’t buy your way to the top. Take your time. Learn all the lessons you need to learn. So when success happens, you’re mature enough to handle it.
