7 enemies of commitment

I was going to write a lengthy experiential story in which I captured these 7 situations. But, I did walk into a friend's office and saw this on her wall.

The 7 Enemies of Commitment
1. A lifestyle of giving up.
2. A wrong belief that life should be easy.
3. A wrong belief that success is a destination.
4. An attitude of negative thinking.
5. An acceptance of other people's fences.
6. An irrational fear of failure.
7. A lack of vision
