Commitment Creates The Space For Keeping Your Word To Happen

St Mungo, Clifton Beach, Cape Town, South Africa

June 8, 1983



This essay, Commitment Creates The Space For Keeping Your Word To Happen, is the companion piece to Commitment And The Willingness To Have It All Work Out For Everyone.

It is also the second in a quintology on Commitment: It is also the sixth in a group of twelve adapted from my thesis BREAKTHROUGH SKYDIVING:


Commitment is that quality which, by virtue of its presence alone, creates the space in which keeping your word can happen.

Commitment is not an act of will but rather a condition which exists by virtue of you considering it to be. Commitment is distinct from intention.

While a physical situation encountered intentionally, on purpose, may yet instill intense distrust, there is a natural, absolutely unshakeable trust in the source from whence commitment springs.

No intention is ever totally materialized without commitment. Commitment, by virtue of its presence alone, is that quality which will determine whether you will keep your word and make happen what you said is going to happen, or not.


This essay, Commitment Creates The Space For Keeping Your Word To Happen, recreates Observation 10: Commitment Creates The Space For Keeping Your Word To Happen of my thesis BREAKTHROUGH SKYDIVING which is available at

The essay BREAKTHROUGH SKYDIVING introduces the thesis.
