Can we just talk about promises for a moment?!
What do promises mean to you? .
Personally in my house we don’t use the word “promise.” Promise is just a word and can be easily broken. Growing up with a pretty rough childhood, it’s something I swore I would never say to my kids because I never wanted to break a “promise” to my babies. .
So do you constantly promise yourself or someone to just break that promise... chances are probably so! .
That’s OK! .
I was the same way with MYSELF! I would make myself a thousand promises just to break that promise to myself. I never really stuck with anything, I haven’t achieved half of what I’ve set out to do ALL because of broken promises. .
I made a promise to myself months ago to be consistent, to do things to make my health better. .
I started off small. I made a promise to myself that for a week I would get out of bed, get dressed, do my hair, and cook supper. 7 days passed and I kept that promise to myself. So I made another promise to start working out everyday with one rest day, even when I DIDNT want to. .
GUESS WHAT?! .
Three months later I have kept that promise to myself and the results are out of this world. .
Not only are my results PROOF that what I’m doing is working, BUT my blood work is the best it’s been in THREE years! My anti inflammatory markers have always been 22 or higher! Way out of this world! Today they were 2.8! 🙌🏻😳 .
Point is keeping a promise to yourself is HUGE! It has changed the way I look, the way I feel, the person I am on the daily! .
So my challenge for you is to make yourself a small promise and keep that promise to yourself for 7 days, it can be not drinking your Diet Coke for 7 days or reading your kids a bedtime story for 7 days, LITERALLY can be WHATEVER, then make that promise a little bigger for a little longer, eventually you won’t break a promise! .
After you quit breaking promises to yourself, do you know what you will be able to achieve in this life that is YOURS to make of it what YOU want! .
