Inspirational Quotes and Sayings Inspirational Quotes and Sayings

Sorry, no inspirational quotes and sayings here, it's all about commitment. I could give you inspirational quotes and sayings, but that won't help you with your commitment level. Commitment will involve sacrifices for a season, but the results could be a lifetime of amazing possibilities for you and the world you live in.

I want to share with you the ultimate example of commitment-- the Nelson Mandela story. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years as a political prisoner in South Africa before becoming the country's first black president. Mandela was a leading member of the African National Congress (ANC), which opposed South Africa's white minority government and its policy of racial separation, known as apartheid. The government outlawed the ANC in 1960. Mandela was captured and jailed in 1962. He spent most of his sentence at Robben Island. Seven years into his sentence, Mandela's prison cell doors were opened, his shackles were taken off and he was set free under one condition: he had to put an end to his crusade. When Mandela was offered his freedom based on this agreement, he simply got up, turned around, walked back to his cell, closed the door, and put his shackles back on. He refused to give up on the commitment he made to his country and his people, even for something as precious as freedom!
