Decide and Act. When we are decisive many things happen and turn out for the better. We will stumble and fail along the way but if you really study the most successful individuals they are decisive.

When they make up their minds to do something they commit themselves wholeheartedly to the mission.Commitment and resolve coupled with a clear mission pushes us over the most difficult hurdles and obstacles in life.

Commitment and Resolve

When we do things half-heartedly that is when we fall astray. If you are committed to a course of action, follow it through to the end. Those who are indecisive and keep on changing course will never reach their destination.


Space Craft and Travel to Space

When any space craft is launched from earth, its trajectory is mapped out clearly. The guidance system has all coordinates hard coded. The mission is planned and decided way beforehand. Decisions are taken and what follows is execution to the end.

When that space craft is orbiting the earth, it’s the result of many decisive actions that were taken and executed. When the mission ends and the astronauts return to earth, we can all say mission accomplished.

Please imagine if there was no mission and strategy before a space craft launches out of earth. It would end up anywhere in the galaxy. That’s the power of mission, commitment and resolve to see things through to the end.

Cruise Ship

The oceans are vast and cover more surface area than land in our planet earth. When sea travelers venture out, they have to map out their destination beforehand. If they don’t do this, they can easily get lost in the vast ocean.

This is why cruise ships sell and market attractive destinations to travelers. They understand that the final destination is what attracts the customer. The commitment and resolve to make the journey happen and be successful then comes into play.

All necessary resources from the navigation crew, cabin crew, entertainment crew, engineering and maintenance crew to the kitchen staff are resourced. Fuel, food and other necessary logistics are marshalled.

With this all-in place the cruise ship finally sets out to its various ports of call and destinations. All these planning and decision making is vital. Without decision and action nothing happens. It would all remain a pipe dream.

Real Estate and Construction

The majority of buildings have a clear purpose whether it’s a church, mosque, hotel, resort, school, residential home, apartments, hospitals, malls etc.

Real Estate and construction, has been one of the most enduring, valued and active sectors on earth, since man evolved from the nomadic hunter and gathering lifestyles to farming and settled life in villages and cities.

We are moved by the grandiose of some of the most majestic buildings on earth. From the pyramids in Egypt, the grand churches and castles in Europe, inspiring hotels and resorts, the Taj Mahal in India to the modern day Burj Khalifa in Dubai, all these buildings command awe and inspiration.

These buildings were first ideas and imaginations in the developers and architects’ brains before they were put down on paper. To bring them to reality decisive action had to be taken. The planning and resources to execute and bring these ideas into reality needs massive commitment and resolve.

These magnificent buildings and architectural master pieces would not grace the plane earth if it had not been for the resolve and determination of the developers and owners to see their ideas executed to reality.


Have a crystal-clear mission and live with purpose. Decide, act and keep your resolve and commitment to the mission. See it to the end and do not look back once you set out on your mission. This is what matters at the end of the day.

The most successful projects would not have seen the light of the day without a firm commitment to see them through to the end.
