Promises, Commitments & Discipline

by Barbara

Bee at work

Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible,

and suddenly you are doing the impossible. 

~ St. Francis of Assisi

 

How many times have you started a new diet and exercise program, only to fizzle out and lose the incentive to continue? You promised yourself this year would be different. Emergencies arise out of nowhere. Priorities get shuffled around. Illness strikes like a ball from left field and interferes with your new routine. You fall back and give up. It’s easy to rationalize and say to ourselves we will try again. And then we don’t. 

You can change the outcome or end result of your work by making a plan and sticking to it. You can also call it a formula or recipe for your success. It starts with writing down your goal. You can call it a dream too. Then write a soul contract that keeps you committed to the promise you make. In the contract you write everything you will do to make the components of the contract come into reality. Everyday complete your action steps.Watch how the universe provides more help along the way. The help can be as subtle as an email message, or billboard sign on the road. 

For example, if your goal is to stop wearing prescription eyeglasses, then you will be doing a step by step program of exercises. Your commitment is to honor and love yourself to follow through and perform the daily exercises. The discipline comes into play as you will be tempted, diverted, interrupted, and challenged to keep up the scheduled exercises. Documentation of your completed exercises and notation of your progress in a journal ensure success. The “rewards” and confirmation of your commitment will be seen in moments of perfect vision. This is the universe, you, giving yourself a thumbs-up to keep going and stay on track. 

It also helps to have the mindset to be tenacious in your program. Even to say, “I’ll do what ever it takes, for how ever long it takes”, drives your incentive to stay focused on your goal/dream. Daily affirmations and mantras reinforce your drive. 

Just like the bee who gathers pollen every day during its life, you will reach your goal through your commitment and discipline to perform the small steps consistently. Once you attain your goal and dreams, make new ones to keep you growing, healthy and creating.

Blessings and love,
