The most important thing about a promise is to keep it. It does not matter how big or how small the promise is. If we are not sure we can keep our promise, then the best thing is to say; I will try, I will do my best. Promise only if we know we can keep it. In business we say, under promise and over deliver. That is a very wise business strategy that will get you lots of loyal clients and referrals.
But there is one person that we have to respect the most and that is ourselves. We should only promise ourselves something when we know that we can keep that promise. You see everything starts with us. How can we keep promises to others when we can’t keep them to ourselves? We promise ourselves that we will go to the gym 5 times a week and then…the promise goes out the window. Instead make a promise that we will go 3 times a week. It is so much easier to fit that in our busy schedule and it will make us feel great when we keep it.
That does not mean that we down size every promise. We can make huge promises as long as we keep them. When we promise something we need to make sure that we keep it. How awesome it is when someone says about us that when we promise, you can count on it!
The most important thing is that we feel good all the time. When we feel good we create in our lives what it is that we desire. So, promise yourself what you think you can do, keep that promise, feel awesome about it…and…pat yourself on the back for accomplishing it. Then…have fun going on to bigger achievements.
Have an absolutely magical week full of LOVE, GRATITUDE and FUN!!!
