Commit to It!

Commit to It!

“I have opened my mouth unto the Lord, and I cannot go back.”      Jdg 11:35

After arriving in the New World, the Spanish explorer Cortez took his crew off their ships and set the ships on fire as the sailors watched in confusion and horror. By that one act, Cortez sealed their commitment to explore new territory and ensured they’d never give in or go back. Guess what? Having no alternative clears your perception, does away with procrastination, and helps you make up your mind. When you’re in a corner, you learn to reach deeper inside yourself, and in so doing you discover God-given strengths you never knew existed. When you’re up against a deadline, it releases a creative flow within you. For example, nothing increases your commitment like the threat of failure or the risk of embarrassment. In The Tyranny of E-mail, John Freeman says, “Attention is one of the most valuable modern resources. If we waste it on frivolous communication we will have nothing left when we really need it.” Distractions drain your energy, blur your focus, and disrupt your momentum. Projects fail, companies collapse, and marriages are damaged because of the way distractions deplete our resources and destroy our relationships. Don’t get to the end of your life only to look back and discover you forfeited things which were truly significant, to make way for things that added nothing of value. Jephthah made a vow to God that resulted in great victory for Israel, and led to his promotion as their leader. And it’s a commitment you need to make today: “I have opened my mouth unto the Lord, and I cannot go back.”

Thus that's why this article is perfect. Thanks!

Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post
or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with
HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no
coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your
intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something
enlightening to read?

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
But just imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche.

Fantastic blog!

Can I simply just say what a comfort to find someone
who genuinely knows what they are discussing on the internet.
You certainly know how to bring a problem
to light and make it important. A lot more people really
need to check this out and understand this side of your story.
It's surprising you are not more popular because you certainly
possess the gift.
