The conscious leader embraces commitment.

He has noticed that when you dream about something, not a lot changes. However, when you commit to do something—like climbing a mountain—by a certain date, a host of new thoughts occur in your mind: What training do I need? What’s that hiking shop doing there…?!

Therefore, he sees commitment as a creative force: his mind goes to work to deal with the challenges he has set himself.

He has also noticed that when he shares his commitments with others, synchronicities occur that move things forward quicker than he could have hoped for. Life, in the form of other people, seems to be generous in that way.

He embraces obstacles because he knows that they are what make commitment necessary, and outcomes worthwhile.

The conscious leader runs his train on the tracks of commitment, and never lets excuses—nor obstacles—get in the way.
