Commitment + Action = Your Dreams Being Close

Author of quote anonymous

I would say action leads to you being committed because when you take those steps and begin to see your hard work paying off then you will stay dedicated to what you see is working. You can’t be committed to something and you haven’t first put the work in. I’m viewing this quote like a relationship. You can be in a committed relationship, you and your partner are not be putting forth any effort on establishing a sturdy foundation that will allow you two to withstand hardships. But remember you two are committed. Heck lots of people are committed. I have a gym membership with the YMCA. I pay $44 every 15th of the month. Now that’s commitment but I don’t go to the gym. So how is that leading toward action? It’s not, I have to first put forth the effort in paying for a membership and actually go everyday or every other day. Rather than just give my money to a facility thinking that I’m some how going to lose weight and gain those results that I want to see.

Now I know that I said you need to put forth the action first then the commitment will follow. Actually both go together. It’s like the scripture says faith without works is dead. You can’t have commitment without action and you can’t have action without commitment. They are one in the same.


Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
