Commit to Yourself

Another Christmas has passed and many are starting to look forward to the New Year and think about New Years resolutions. What are you committing to? It seems like just a short time ago that many were concerned about Y2K and now another 10 years has passed. As you reflect on the past 10 years, and particularly 2009, is everything working out like you planned? Are you living your dreams as you envisioned them? Are you living the life you pictured for yourself? Did you picture yourself being healthier, more spiritual, having stronger relationships, or more financially secure?

The past two or three years has been particularly tough for most. Many have not experienced the joy and peace of mind they thought they would. The great news is that you can turn that around. 2010 can be a turning point but it won’t happen unless you become committed to change. It also won’t happen unless you are very disciplined. We’ll talk about discipline on another day. It’s been said that insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. The only way you can expect something different is to do something different. The only way you can expect something better is to become better.

All of us can accomplish so much more than we’ve accomplished so far. I believe that just about anything is possible if you will truly set your heart and mind on achieving it. The only limitations you have are the limitations others try to put on you, or more importantly, the limitations you put on yourself. You are so much more capable and magnificent than you give yourself credit for.

What is your vision for the future? What are your dreams? What do you want to accomplish? Are you willing to commit to living out your vision? What commitments are you going to make to yourself for 2010?

It is always a good idea to share your commitments to yourself with others as a way to hold yourself accountable. I would enjoy hearing what commitments you’ve made to yourself by leaving your comments on this blog.

Thanks for your input and have an awesome day.
