Commitment phobia can interfere with accomplishing your goals or having a satisfying relationship. Some people do not even realize they have commitment issues. Yet the signs can be quite obvious to their associates.
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: 'Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it! Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it.” --W.H. Murray
Commitment - Choosing to Cross the Finish Line
Whether a commitment made is to
an idea, individual or situation,
it is a long term proposition.
Commitment is opportunity for growth.
It requires tenacity, determination, focus
understanding that the path chosen
may have its share of obstacles.
Sometimes when the going gets rough,
jumping ship may appear to be the best solution.
However, before jumping ship, take time to notice whether the rough waters are merely caused by the natural ebb and flow of the commitment or the result of a change in tide.
