For 2014, I’m describing the things I’m putting into place for my next level of growth as Commitments – not resolutions, not goals and not intentions. This is not a slam against those other labels but for me, I’m using the word Commitment because it speaks more powerfully & practically to me for now.
Thoughts Become Things
What You Think About You Bring About
These are all different ways to describe an area for me that needs focused & committed growth. Last year, it became more clear to me that my work and efforts in a number of life areas was hindered by my mindset. I ran across people and had conversations that kept coming back to mindset. The theme kept showing up, so I finally “got” the lesson that I needed to really make an effort to create one for myself that is more aligned with where I plan to go, not what I was still dragging around out of habit.
I have a number of both daily and weekly practices now that directly address this. Is this “work” very glamorous or exciting to talk about?
Nope. It’s very internal, private, annoying & painful sometimes. But I have no doubt it’s some of the most important work I can do for myself and others right now, so it’s now a priority.
