Yesterday, on Day 11, I posted this on Practicing Determination.  This morning, I am realizing a deeper appreciation of same.

Getting clear and committed is a dance.  Clarity requires Commitment and Commitment requires Clarity.  Both are virtues.  Both require Courage; another virtue.  The focus and follow through that comes from such is palpable.  Until and unless one gets so clear and committed, Determination is without focus.  And yet, to determine something is to get clear and committed. Hmmmmm….

Do you see where I am going?  This is a one ball.  Clarity and Commitment are determined through truthful and courageous consideration.  Once determined, they forge the foundation for Determination.

The reflection continues, but this morning I am ever more aware of the organic nature of Determination, Clarity and Commitment; and the importance of exploring and practicing them all.  This one life we know we have demands it. And it is a truly personal choice.  With my recent five buckets statement for 20022020 (my 60th birthday) in mind…

  • It is 20022020, and I am a master and lifelong student of the global body of work around character leadership and unity building.  I have learned conversational Mandarin and French to bring that work more global.  I have also engaged a deepened level of spiritual studies and practice through The Ruhi Institute, and more.  I am living a life filled with love, song, dance, cartooning, writing, epic stories, archery and more of what and who I love.  My #bestlittledogintheworld Panda is by my side in enjoying it all.  I am teaching business leadership at College of the North Atlantic, in class and online; and doing my global work of Epic Engage™. I am loving it!  I am 110K in weight (slim for my body structure) and benching same; healthy and strong. And, I am financially ready, willing and able to support special projects in which I deeply want to invest and contribute.

,,, I am ever more aware of this dance and its importance for these coming days, weeks and months.  How about you?  For what can you practice true Determination?

Peace, passion and prosperity.
