What is the secret behind the ironclad commitment with which successful people approach their goals?
Commitment is not a burden, it is a powerGurumatha Amma, founder of Centre for Self- Realisation, Bangalore reflects on commitment
Commitment or responsibility is a power or inner strength, not a burden. It is an ability to respond to the need of the situation or to be available to the situation. When you stick to commitment totally, respecting and trusting yourself, success is the result.
Success is not the goal for a committed person. It is a consequence of his dedication. Always remember that the goal is not your own goal but Godís will. Then ego will never enter into it and the will to achieve the fruits of your own labour will not be there. From this state of mind, you will not get caught up in assessing your own achievement but will maintain the focus on Godís will. This is the secret of sticking to a commitment. The quality you need to hang in there is surrender. Surrender the results and remain committed to the path regardless of what obstacles come in the way. God removes all obstacles to His work. A committed person flows with the river which is already committed to flow toward the ocean. There is no need to swim. Effortlessly you reach the goal. Here your goal is not personal but universal. If you surrender to existence, you are successful. To have oneís own will is egoistic. To allow Godís will to happen is surrender. To be with God and in God is to be successful. There can be no other victory greater than this. Commitment and responsibility are two aspects of the same reality.
