As an artist its real hard to stay consistent so anyone thats consistent my heart goes out to them- Rakim
|Eric Harvey says, ‘Think about somebody you know who’s of good character, and reflect on the characteristics that make them a role model… Chances are that high on the list is commitment – an unwavering dedication to being a good family member and friend – to doing their best on and off the job… to doing what’s right, noble and decent.
Committed people… have their heads andhearts in the right place. They keep their priorities straight… stay focused on what’s important… What they believe drives how they behave, and how they behave determines their character… their reputation… and the legacy they leave.’ Abraham Lincoln observed, ‘Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It’s the words that speak boldly of your intentions, and the actions which speak louder than the words. It’s making time when there is none… it’s coming through time after time, year after year. Commitment is the stuff character’s made of… the power to change the face of things… the daily triumph of integrity over scepticism.’ An admirer approached the world-renowned pianist Van Cliburn after one of his concerts and said, ‘I’d give my life to be able to play like you.’ Smiling, Cliburn replied, ‘I did!’
