A Message from one of the editors

When I was a little boy my desire to be the best amongst of my peer was strong as is in most of childhood friends. Back then, I did not realized the ingredients of success or what make one successful in whatever life journey he or she takes. As time went by, I came to understand that we all have a magic aspiration to have successful life. It is our unshakeable commitment  to achieve our dreams that drives us to get to the stage of success whatever that may be. No matter where we find ourselves, I believe that this commitment  is always inside and waiting to be tapped, however, without the commitment many of us struggle to maintain our daily life. So how do we tap commitment? How do we get the sprite out of our own magic desire so success can happen for us?

To succeed in life we need unwavering commitment and passion. These two together make the key ingredients to flourish and be successful! If there is not enough of both present in our life, chances to succeed are substantially reduced.

Passion is extremely good driving force, but “do not let the tail to wag the dog”. Too much passion can make you blind to a number of things around you. As in love, without commitment, too much passion does not create lasting relationships. Being passionate does not cost you that much. It is the strength of your commitment what makes your goal in life attainable, thereby make you a happy person. Dedication is the corner stone when things goes bad or good to get you to your final destination successfully.

Commitment is needed to succeed. Without real commitments, be it good companies or solid family cannot built. Commitment is your interior. It is hard to get in, takes time to learn and it is not that tangible. For an outsider, commitment is hard to differentiate from passion. As I mentioned I am passionate about family relation and I am committed – for me that means that I want to develop myself and my vision about solid family continuously. I am ready to challenge myself to be better tomorrow. Commitment can be expensive. To commit, you have to give up something else – you need to prioritize.

Some people may be happy living life with no commitments and no relationships, but I’m convinced those relationships without commitments are just temporary fixes. I don’t believe that anyone can truly be content with that lifestyle. Maybe you’re happy now, but each relationship will be less and less satisfying until you eventually realize how soulless and disassociated from humanity you’ve become. If you’re anything like most people I’ve met, you’re very competitive. Competition is natural for us because we’re sophisticated animals and it is part of our nature to be in competition with each other. We will always be on this life-long pursuit of “something better,” whether it’s by traveling, a new career path, a new significant other, or even a change in lifestyle.

You don’t always need to drop one thing in exchange for the other; you can travel with a significant other or you can change your lifestyle by pursuing a new career. Ultimately, commitments don’t have to be treated like trading cards. You may think there’s someone out there who’s better than what you have but the same goes for them. That person chose you so don’t be an ass and drop them when you think you can “upgrade.” Everyone I know, including me, has self-prescribed anxiety and we all believe that there are deep-rooted issues that cause us to have commitment issues or which create the anxiety that causes us to end things before they begin. We all have experiences and the past is a significant factor in how we conduct ourselves in the present or future. Experiences work like shock therapy; you get burned enough times and you naturally become conditioned to stop doing it.

Don’t put off committing to anything including someone tolling you to wait. Regret is something a lot of people experience every day and time is something you can’t ever get back, so why waste it because you told yourself that you had time? Time doesn’t wait for you, so don’t wait for it.

Sincerely yours,
Filipos Abraham
