What you think about, you bring about.
What you think about becomes your belief.
What you believe becomes your perception by which you view your life.
Your Perception determines your experiences that show up in your life
How to deepen your commitment
Have you made the decision to do it? Can you make the commitment? This commitment is to yourself, not to me or anyone else, but you. By making the decision to make the commitment you are now deciding to drop all your excuses, which by the way are keeping you stuck in the game of life.
By making a commitment you are setting the foundation to your success. If you don’t commit, then nothing is going to change. There will be no progress, because it doesn’t matter what you do, you’re not committed. You’ll start and stop again and again. You’ll keep floundering and never get anywhere.
The question is, “If you do nothing, where will you be in a year from now?” If you don’t make the commitment to yourself now, when will you?
If you tell yourself that you are going to do something and then you don’t do it, you are actually lying to yourself. By lying to yourself, you confuse your mind, which creates lack of trust within yourself.
If your mind doesn’t have a direction it, will flip, flop like a fish floundering in the water not going anywhere and nothing will ever change or happen.
Now is the time to make the agreement to yourself, make the commitment. You are the only one who can make it happen. As Nike says… ‘Just Do It!’ Decide that you’re dropping any and all excuses. But, you may ask “How do you make this commitment?”
What I do is take a 3×5 cards, so I can post them above the kitchen sink and on my bathroom mirror. I use colored pencils to draw a little picture, so my eye will keep being drawn to it. Then is the center of the card I post a statement of what I want.
This is really the first step in creating a new mindset. If you’re committed to yourself there are no longer any excuses. I found when I made the decision to do it. I was committed and it was easier to stick to it.
If you don’t make a decision, then it really doesn’t matter what else you do, you will not follow through. Boy, isn’t that the truth. Sometimes the decision is the hardest part, but when you do make the decision, you feel good about yourself and you’re motivated to go after it.
I ask you again, “Are you committed?” If you don’t make the commitment to yourself now, when will you?
