COMMITMENTS present themselves in delineations of black and white; you either honor your commitments, or you don’t.
Success is the result of making and keeping commitments to yourself and others, while all failed or unfinished goals, projects, and relationships are the direct result of broken obligations.
It’s that simple, that profound, and that important!
Your ability to honor your promises directly impacts your credibility, reputation, trustworthiness, earning ability, and overall peace of mind.
The greatest and most unfortunate betrayal is that of oneself.
Being able to adhere to our commitments begins with self-respect. When we say one thing and do another—when we start projects but don’t finish them; when we go on a diet but quit soon after beginning—then the only thing at which we become successful at is sabotaging our reputation with ourselves.
And when we dishonor our own commitments and lie to ourselves, how on earth can we be expected to honor the commitments we make to others?
So your daily challenge is to adopt the Integrity Pledge which will ensure that your commitments will always be honored:
If you make a commitment, honor it.
If you make a promise, keep it.
If you set a goal, achieve it.
Commitment inspires you to perform at the best of your abilities and that’s what this 100 Day Challenge is all about!
