I have been questioning my commitment to things and people a little more than usual, which got me to thinking about my commitment levels.
Overall, I would say that I am very committed to whatever it is I said I would do or set out to do. But this past week things changed. I am really questioning myself.
Have you ever questioned your commitment?
I am days away from the 2016 South Carolina Grand Prix. And depending on when you ask me how I am doing you might get varying answers. At this moment, I am feeling more confident about my posting and what my body is looking like. Two months ago when my coach suggested that we, meaning I, do this show in addition to the one a few weeks ago I wasn’t so sure. Could I make it through the additional weeks of training? Could I keep myself from going off the deep end? Could I find the inner strength to push forward?
Last week I still wasn’t so sure. I had a few times where my commitment and belief in myself were tested.
And then this past weekend, I wondered how I would muster the strength to get out on the pavement and do what needed to be done. I reached out to a few folks and none took me up on my offer to run. I’m not sure about you, but sometimes it gets a little lonely on the drive forward.
However, here I am 5 days away zeroing in on the day at hand.
Actions speak louder than words
I came across this Ralph Waldo Emerson quote that seems perfect: “What you do speaks so loudly, that I can not hear what you say.”
People are constantly saying that they wish they could achieve X, eat better or make a commitment to exercising regularly. I believe we all can.
I challenge you to ask yourself this question; “Am I all talk and no action?”
People who are consistently putting actions into their goals aren’t only committed to them, they have a vision. This vision includes where they are going and why. I’ve been thinking about this and if you’re struggling with being interested in something, how do you turn it into being fully 100% committed?
Create your own personal vision.
Sit down and write a list of all the reasons why you want to achieve your goal and what it’s going to give you personally.
You can work towards your goals and visions once you see it.
What are you goals and visions you are committed to achieving?
