“Always keep your promises, but be damn careful what you promise!”
Pretty good advice. And definitely better than making a bunch of promises to people that you fail to honor.
The challenge arises though, when we make promises to ourselves that we don’t keep. There’s no one but US to know that we didn’t honor our promise. Ultimately though it’s the commitments we make to ourselves that we KEEP that propel us forward towards our dreams.
Keep Your Promises To Yourself
(AND be careful to make INTELLIGENT, fulfillable Promises).
BTW Maybe you prefer to call them “resolutions”. But it’s not the new year yet. And no one keeps “New Year’s Resolutions” anyway. This is just for today. So no pressure. This can be easy. Simple. Kaizen baby!
Here’s the video:
Your assignment today (should you choose to accept it) is to make a small and VERY KEEPABLE promise to yourself. And then keep that promise. Fulfill that promise.
I like that phrase: Fulfill your promise. Perhaps you can start asking yourself a Why question…
“Why do I keep my promises to myself?”
