runner-802912_1920Dedication is the light side of defiance. Dedication is demonstrated by your willingness to commit to and participate fully to a choice. This focus creates forward momentum and aligned actions. Defiance is rigid and creates inertia.

Most of us serve our ideals by fits and starts. The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.  -Cecil B. DeMille

If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards. -Paul Bryant

Questions to ask

  • What choice am I willing to fully focus on today?
  • What are today’s aligned actions toward that choice?
  • How does ruthlessness, coaching, participate fully, collaborative, kind and compassion relate to dedication?
