As a student of United States presidential history as well as leadership, I always enjoy talking about there the two intersect. So I offer you two famous quotes on commitment, with this week’s coming from Abraham Lincoln.
Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words.
It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of, the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.
