Commitment is often misunderstood as an obligation or pressure to conform. Yet, if you consider the activities you enjoy that bring meaning to your life, you are likely fully immersed in them. That's the secret to being committed - connecting to something personal for you. Then there's the confusion around ego. It's not a dirty word! In fact, without a healthy ego, we have no vision, drive, passion or character. The key is to make sure that what we care about (commitment) is always one step ahead of our need to be recognized for it (ego). Commitment-phobes beware - your cover is about to be blown!
