The truth is, there are very few things we are fully committed to.
Very few things we can actually call convictions.
But commitments and convictions are extremely important – both to our sense of well-being and our success in life.
- How committed are you to your friends and family?
- How committed are you to your life’s work?
- How committed are you to learning new things — to your own personal development?
Winston Churchill once said:
“Never give in! Never give in! Never, never, never, never — in nothing great or small, large or petty. Never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense.”
Powerful words from a powerful figure in history.
Yet how many actually heed this advice?
Giving in is so common.
Most people give in to just about anything and everything.
Goals and principles tossed aside at a moment’s notice.
Don’t be that wishy-washy person.
Take Churchill’s advice.
Never. Give. In.
