A primary key to knowing we are committed is when we are willing to make sacrifice in order to achieve our goals. Consider the young athlete willing to practice and train countless hours everyday or anyone in the armed forces who literally sacrifice their life for the greater good. Commitment through sacrifice also relates to the concept of loyalty. Do we stand by our commitment even though it will cause interruptions in other areas of life? If we are willing to give up to the convenient and comfortable options to take a more challenging path, there is a good chance we are committed to this mission.
