Yogi Bhajan often said the first step to happiness is commitment. Commitment means loyalty, dedication, enthusiasm and devotion. True devotion means obeying the Higher Self. Devotion often brings thoughts of religion; it’s also the characteristic that impacts every facet of our life. It can reveal itself in our pursuit of excellence in what we do.
Commitment, dedication, love and humility lend themselves to success in every endeavour. It was devotion that inspired Mother Theresa to serve the poor and it was devotion that allowed Gandhi to lead India to independence. It’s the combination of devotion and love that motivates humanity to serve and excel.
