Commitment accepts no excuses

Dear editor,

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results,” Kenneth Blanchard, author and speaker once said.

Commitment is giving your life to someone or something. This applies to marriage. Being interested in getting married or having a relationship does not mean it is decision time.

Genuine, sincere commitment is what makes a marriage work. Commitment is key to a marriage without divorce.

In Kira Armbruster’s Oct. 2 online article, “Divorce carries heavy emotional toll,” she states, “In 1998, 1.1M couples divorced and in 2000, 21M divorces occurred.”

In just two years the divorce rate went up almost 20 million. More and more people are lowering their morals and are not ready to commit to a certain someone.

In volleyball, I really have to commit to it and keep it high on my list of priorities. Being interested means you play even when you sometimes don’t feel like playing. Being committed to it means going through the rough times with heart and passion.

Commitment is something we all need to learn because it affects everyone around you.
