It’s so great to be alive – it is sunny and beautiful here in San Diego. In today’s video I want to talk to you about something that used to scare the crap out of me. That at one point in time I couldn’t even really fully do. And that’s a word some people wouldn’t like to hear, it’s called commitment. For my entire life I avoided commitments, to where I only committed 99% of myself to the thing that I really didn’t want to do.
But recently, in the last year or so, I found that this wasn’t serving me, or I always come up a little bit short of my goal, really where I wanted to be.
So, I decided to embrace 100% commitment. I know I always used to think I was committed, I really thought I would be 99% committed, but in the back of my mind I had this little voice saying: “If it doesn’t work out it’s OK. You will find something else. Don’t worry about it.”
Now, I silence that voice and say I am a hundred percent committed and no matter what this is going to be the outcome because I will not stop until that is done. And this can look in so many different forms. Let’s say you want to wake up and go running in the morning – you wake up and there is this little voice inside your head and it is like “Man, go back to sleep it’s nice and cosy in here, you worked out yesterday, you deserve a day off.” But 100% commitment says: “Screw that, I am committed to be my best self every day and that means showing up and fulfilling the commitments that I have promised myself.”
So, when you can show up every single day, and make good on these commitments and maybe even exceed them – that’s when you now you are in 100% commitment, that’s when you know you are going to achieve all the goals and dreams you really, really want deep inside your heart.
So, today I ask you to be 100% committed to whatever it is that you want to try. And know what we talked in the last video – baby steps and taking daily consistent action. Be a 100% committed to daily consistent action. If you do, I promise you, you will see results unlike you’ve ever had before. So in the comments below, let me know how it is working out for you, let me know what you are 100% committed to and I can’t wait to hear from you. Have a great day! Cheers!
