Commit to You
While we talked about vision in last month's edition; something just as important, if not more important, is a conviction. Vision is an amazing thing to have, but what is it if there is no commitment to the idea? What's the most relatable thing we can think of where the commitment doesn't match the vision? THE GYM! Most of us are trying to get the perfect body. We keep telling ourselves that we will start at the gym tomorrow, next week, next month and so on until summer comes back around and we wonder why our body isn't matching the idea of how we think it should be. This is of course because our commitment did not match our vision.
In the second month of the year where your conviction is being tested, I want you to challenge yourself to commit to something for 30 days regardless of how you feel each day. Don't stop because you feel tired, don't stop because you feel sick, don't stop because you want to. Just keep going until you have reached 30 days. Why 30 days? 30 days is around the time when we start seeing the fruits of our labor. Whether that be working out or building your business.
Most of all, commit to you. Commitment isn't easy, but it is worth it. Discipline yourself! Commitment to your physical, mental, and spiritual self is of the utmost importance. Without you, you can't accomplish anything you want to accomplish, right? So put yourself first and see how far you can go.
Be good to yourself and to those around you. Commit to you, commit to happiness, and commit to others. After all, you deserve it and so do all other people!
