Half way commitments

Half way commitments

It’s June. 

Half way through the year. 

6 months in. 

Basically, the year is over!!! Its 2016! 

Yes, I am dealing with it beautifully…

 

Its always a good time to reflect (in between the bouts of denial) and have a think and feel on what the rest of the year is going to hold for us. 

Often we think about what we are going to “do”, what we want to “have” and where we are going to “go”.  

 

How about we start with – for the rest of the year – what are you committed to?

 

Think about what you are doing right now, what commitment does that reveal to you? What commitments are you living now in your life? 

 

“Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.”

 

So, ask yourself – what am I committed to?
And, why do I care about this commitment? 

Feel it in your bones, know why you care, make it linked to your core desired feelings so that you are licking your lips and doing cartwheels when you think about it (or quietly meditating in a peaceful way). 

 

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now”

William Hutchison Murray 

 

And whilst you are it, how about you take some time to reflect on how you are showing up. 

I talk about this a lot in a leadership capacity – how are you showing up as a leader? 

How are you showing up? 

How are you showing up as a lover? How are you showing up as a friend? As a colleague? As a daughter? As a boss? 

And could you be kinder? Could you care more? Could you give a little more of you?

Be rude not to…
