Opt For Commitment

If your choices are resistance or commitment, choose commitment.

Resistance is safe. After all, if you are not busy creating, then you can’t make mistakes or fail. Resistance also prevents you from experiencing opportunities to learn.

Resistance leads to procrastination. self-doubt and also allows you to easily be distracted.

Resistance guarantees that you will not be creative at all.

With commitment, there are no guarantees. There will, however, be uncertainty. There may even be fear of the unknown. But at least you will be creating. And once you show up and begin, you will find yourself immersed in your work.

Once you commit, you tell yourself that what you are about to set out to create is important and meaningful to you.

Commitment accelerates creativity, improves confidence, allows for more involvement in the process and increases productivity.

If the choice is between resistance and commitment, seriously consider opting for commitment.
