“Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you said it in has left.” Unknown
Here we are again, guys! Halfway through the week! How are you all doing? I am blessed and thriving. Literally! I can’t believe it is already the middle of the week. Tomorrow, one of my best friends get into town and we are heading to New Orleans for our company’s yearly convention. I am very excited because of all the places I have traveled, New Orleans is a new one for me. Next week I will be sure to tell you how it is and I will throw in some fun pictures.
Unknown to us, the very same weekend is a popular jazz festival and all the hotel rates were jacked up, so we decided to get an Airbnb. I have never stayed in one so I am looking forward to the new experience and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
Today, I want to talk to you guys about what it really means to follow through and commit. It is such an obvious concept but, it is so easy to struggle with the execution.
“Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you said it in has left.”
I think we can all relate to this quote. It’s one of my favorites and that’s why I put it in here twice today. Think about it. You agree to watch your little brother when you’re out to lunch with mom but, now it sounds much better to go shopping with your friends. Or you volunteer to bring the snacks to a party but, now you want to go on a date. They’ll get by without the snacks, right?
This kind of thinking will always keep you in the same mindset and continue to hinder you. So why do we continue to do it? Because we need to start prioritizing and following through with our actions!
Words are meaningless without intent and follow through.
This year is dedicated to loving ourselves and bettering ourselves. So, we have to start being accountable and remain accountable. If I am not doing what I said I would I know the people around me will call me out, as they should. It is so important to follow through with what we say because it helps us live a positive life and become a better character. I hope this is something we can all work on! The more you can practice this the better you will begin to feel.
Thankful for all you guys and the support. It has been extremely rewarding starting this. Talk about commitment and consistency . We are 3 month’s in with our blog and it has taught me A LOT! I knew I had to find a way to reach more people and share my story. I just didn’t know how it would go beginning a blog, knowing nothing about it. Ha . 🙂
I’m going to tell you something , when you find your Passion and your “Why” nothing will get in the way ! I will continue to follow through for all of you and Commit to changing as many lives as possible
Have a great night guys- and talk to you soon !
