As we’re finishing up the year I’m reminded of how I started the year before lock down was in place. I created a goal of writing my newsletter every month on time with no excuses. When June rolled around, and we moved into more of the same, people kept saying “why not just drop it”. I began asking myself the same question. Sometimes it’s better to just walk away when you are in over your head or it no longer makes sense. In my case, there was something important to me, in seeing it through. Maybe it’s the fact that I always get emails or calls from people who read them, thanking me for the support and I’m humbled and encouraged if it helps just one person; Or maybe it”s because I had already declared that this was my goal. Finishing the objective you set out to do has more to do with you strengthening your own sense of self and trust in honoring what you say you’ll do, than anything else. I’m happy to say I’m almost to the finish line, with one month to go. Here’s the article I wrote way back in June called Why Goals matter, if you by chance want to check it out. I’m really happy to say I’m almost to the finish line.
What is Commitment?
Commitment is showing up and keeping your word.
It’s doing what you say you will do, even on the days you don’t want to.
It’s creating a schedule and adherhing to it, even when you want to stay in bed with the covers over your head or watch movies all day.
What happens if you fall down and blow it?
You simply get back up when you do, and begin again.
No one is perfect, so don’t beat yourself up.
Beating yourself up is the booby prize, and makes things worse, wallowing in your woe is me, So forgive yourself when you derail and get back on track.. All great leaders, authors, executives, coaches etc, know this, and you are no different.
Dust yourself off and begin again, no excuses, no spilled milk. Bring the cat in to lap it up, if you have to. Yep, it’s as easy as that!
If you only reach 80 % of your intended goal, then guess what? You are way ahead of the game and on your way to creating whatever it is you want.
Stay the course, keep your committment to you and pretty soon you will see your deepest desires, manifested.
Your WHY might have to be reviewed to keep your eye on the prize.
So make sure you have your Why somewhere where you can see it everyday!
Why do you want what you want? Why is it important to you?
Make sure you are doing it for YOU.
How will YOU feel after if you stay the course and complete your objective?
Allow it to speak to the part inside of you that wants to emerge.
Fan it, write it, breath it, make it your Mantra!
Committ to your highest purpose and stay the course.
Dreams are manifested from this place.
Keep Going, You’re almost there!
Hooray for you, you are doing it!
You are a bright Star in the Universe!
Here are the steps to help you stay the course.
