You need commitment! #simple
Mention commitment in a sentence, and you’ll have most guys and girls thinking of relationships and marriages.
But that’s not what we are going to do today. We are going to discuss how commitment can change your life.
I chose ‘commitment,’ and it turned my life around. I committed to a noble cause, the cause of removing all disempowering and toxic habits from my life.
It hasn’t been that long, but I noticed how much cutting myself from these habits has empowered me.
In the beginning, these commitments seemed hard. So naturally, I looked for support and joined some online groups. I found that we were all in this together and I had come a long way to give up now.
I have often read people saying that if you fail once, don’t stop, keep trying.
But think of this way: What if I follow a no-carb diet but slip and eat a cheeseburger on the 11th day? A guilty me would go back to the no-carb diet post the slip but what if I slip again?
You can’t take a break from your commitments on weekends or every 10 days. There are no vacations from commitments.
Slipping, following the routine, slipping again, back to the routine; no that doesn’t work. What do you think this vicious and perpetual cycle of slipping and routine will do?
Keep you from reaching your goals.
You or I don’t have to be so hard on ourselves because we slipped. But we can’t move over and over again.
Nor should we accept these little failures and motivate ourselves to move past them. No, don’t hold on to them but commit to never fail like that.
The key is to accept commitment wholeheartedly and never cave into the temptations.
Say no to almost
No one likes scoring the second position. So, why accept the almost everything.
Would you eat an almost cooked steak? Then why accept almost successful?
Commitment is scary. But the lack of commitment is what’s keeping you and me from getting where we want to be.
You must be strong, and you will find absolute power in commitment.
