Love, Honor & Self-respect

Love, Honor and Self-respect

Have you ever made a promise to yourself but you didn’t follow through? Have you ever started a new hobby and gave up because you lost interest? It’s easy to let go of things that you’re not committed to.

Commitment means you put forth dedication and hard work without giving up. Sure, you may get discouraged along the way but you stay on course and persevere through the bad times. The question is…are you ready to commit to you?

Making a commitment to yourself is not always easy. Here are a few tips to follow the next time you are ready to make a promise to yourself.

1. Be Honest: ask yourself if this is something you are willing to see through from beginning to end even if obstacles get in your way. If the answer is no, consider taking on the task when you are ready and focused.

2. Be Realistic: Set realistic goals that you can achieve. Start slow and increase your goals as you achieve them. If you set the bar too high in the beginning, you may give up before you reach the end.

3. Write it Down: You become more committed when you write down your dreams, visions or goals.

4. Be Accountable: Sometimes it’s hard to hold yourself accountable. If you know this may be a problem, find someone who will hold you accountable for your actions.

5. Re-evaluate: Do a midpoint checkup to see if you are on track. If you are at a plateau revise your plan.

6. Make a Pledge: Commit to yourself by writing out an actual pledge to make it happen. Be sure to sign it and date it. Look at the pledge daily as a reminder of your commitment. This will help you stay on track.

7. Celebrate Your Wins: No matter how big or small of a win…celebrate. The celebration gives you something to look forward to when you make an accomplishment.

Making a commitment to yourself is easy. Staying on track and following through is the hard part. When you follow through with your commitment, you love, honor and respect who you are. Take the pledge to embrace your beauty today! Have a wonderful week! MUAH
