I was reading something the other day that resonated so hard with me.
It was talking about reaching your goals and staying accountable to and for yourself.
If you’re like me, maybe you’ve found yourself having a hard time sticking with your commitments to your goals and looking hard for that one thing that’s going to help you stay accountable. What she said was maybe it’s time to stop looking for what’s going to keep you accountable and start looking inward. Why haven’t you committed to yourself? Do you really need to be looking for the someone that’s going to help change you or do you need to start being accountable and show up for YOU.
“if you are not willing to keep promises to yourself, then why should anyone else? Come up with a few promises that embody the type of character you want to represent. I promise to try my best. I promise to finish what I started. I promise to take care of myself. When you read these promises, they should make you feel like you are giving yourself a big, warm hug. Be your own biggest supporter!”
If you have goals but you’re struggling to achieve them, ask yourself: Have I truly committed to myself?
