In Commit to Win, Heidi Reeder, PhD, unpacks over forty years of research by psychologists and economists to show that the key to reaching any goal, whether it’s to hit the gym more often or to finally quit that dead-end job, isn’t motivation, willpower, or determination.

I've been wanting to read this book for over a year and from the first page, I realized it was going to benefit me in more ways than one.

I am committed to my goals and to everything that I have visualized for my future and realize that committing to win and taking action on those commitments are the ways to get those goals accomplished and to see my visions ...more

AWESOME BOOK!

This book helped me make some hard decisions in life. It really made me think deeply about where I needed to spend my energy to create the results that I wanted. In general, it really solidified the importance of being committed and what kind results comes from it.

I should read this again sometime

“Any goal, regardless of how much it’s cherished or how earnestly it’s developed, will make little progress unless it is supported by commitment. Without commitment, the goals we set for ourselves are mere dreams—ideas that don’t have the footing to be realized. Just as motivation provides the energy to set goals and begin the journey, commitment provides the power to stick with it over time so that goals can be actualized.” 0 likes
