How to keep commitments to yourself. So keeping commitments to others can be simple enough. But when it comes to keeping commitments to myself, that can be a different story. And I keep asking myself why is it so hard?
To be really clear, when I say committing to yourself. I mean commit to something you said you were going to do. So like going for that walk, taking 10 minutes to meditate or working on that business you are so passionate to start. Because these are commitments that only you can keep.

Why do we break promises to ourselves?
How to keep commitments to yourself. So why is it easier to keep a commitment to others than it is to ourselves? And why do we keep letting ourselves down and make everything else a priority?
Well I can honestly say It’s because we are taught that it’s selfish to put ourselves first. Because I don’t believe for a minute that it is selfish to put ourselves first. And I BELIEVE it’s not selfish to put our own needs first. But I still have trouble with this sometimes.
So after thinking more deeply about it, I realized that maybe it’s limiting beliefs. Because it’s a lot easier to think we’re not worthy of achieving what we want. We talk ourselves out of things so very quickly and avoid things even quicker.

Get in the right mindset.
