Commitment

Yourself, Understood

Commitment

Commitment can be defined as the mental or physical act of directing more physical, mental, emotional, spiritual resources to an activity or a relationship. Commitment can be increased by our perceived value of the activity and relationship, thus leading to even more increased involvement and added motivation.
Unlike wishes and dreams, that don't necessarly imply an action, commitment contains the means of its own fulfillment and therefore constitutes self-directed actions as there are no unconscious commitments.

Commitment is divided into commitment making and commitment keeping.
The first is driven by the goal, by the incentive you set and have, while commitment keeping is driven by the fear of the consequences of not keeping the commitment. So we can say that the greater is your feeling toward commitment making, the more likely you will keep the commitment.
