1. I cannot expect the strength of an emotion to turn a decision into a commitment.
Confusing a crisis with a commitment is a mistake — commitment can come out of a crisis, but the two are not the same thing.
2. I do not need to try to feel committed in order to validate a commitment.
True commitment shows itself in the very absence of feelings; any immature person can do what they feel like doing.
3. A commitment is best made by approaching the Lord out of the confidence that He wants to help me, rather than making elaborate promises to Him.
4. My best commitments come out of making specific, knowledgeable and attainable goals.
5. I need to ask for help from others whenever I need to do so,
6. Gaining a vision of myself accomplishing my commitments is a key to having them worked into my character.
