“Dedicate yourself to what gives your life true meaning and purpose; make a positive difference in someone’s life.” – Roy. T. Bennett.
The Oxford Learner’s dictionary describes dedication as the hard work and effort somebody puts into an activity or purpose because they think it is essential. Anyone seeking to achieve success must be committed and dedicated. Commitment entails that one has to diligently put his might, strength, intellect into the rigorous process of completing his/her dreams. Being dedicated and committed is not an easy task but necessary for success because dreams cannot become a reality without them.
There is a saying that desire is the key to motivation but determination, dedication, and commitment, enable you to attain the success you seek. Passion and self-belief alone cannot bring success. In every case, if you want to succeed, you must have an unwavering dedication and outstanding commitment.
Dedicated people are hard workers. They put in all their strengths into the sole purpose of achieving his dreams. Committed people will continue to strive no matter the obstacles. No matter what they pass through, they believe that there must be light at the end of the tunnel. They think that there are thousands of reasons why things would always get better.
