Committing Yourself to Positive Actions
If you think about the word commitment, what comes up for you? Does it sound like a chore or a burden, or perhaps something that you have to do instead of want to do? Well committing to positive actions is different and not like that at all.
When you commit yourself to positive actions, guess what? You gain all the benefits and reap all the rewards. Committing yourself to positive action means committing to your authentic self.
Although commitment may sound like a bad word, when it comes to committing yourself to positive actions, there are a few steps you can take to make it easier.
If you are like most individuals, you may have set grand goals and desires only to fall flat and feel as though you have failed. More often than not setting goals that are too big is one surefire way to flop.
When you have a desire, a dream, or a vision, it is important to set smaller goals, ones that are more manageable. When your goals are more manageable, they are quite simply easier to achieve.
Once you have achieved one small goal, the feeling of confidence in you will soar and you will be able to achieve the next bigger goal.
Have an Accountability Partner
Once you have chosen and set smaller goals, find yourself a buddy, co-worker, or family member who will sign up to be your accountability partner. So, when you set those goals, you will now have someone to answer to so to speak.
In other words, make a promise and have someone check in on you to see if you are keeping that promise. It might be to sign up for a class or it might be to make a phone call. Whatever it is, have someone to answer to and you will see how this has a positive impact on your end goal.
Whenever you reach a goal no matter how big or small, reward yourself. Whatever the goal was whether it was to find one new client or to lose five pounds, when you reach your goal reward yourself.
As you embrace the feelings of joy and happiness, you will see that more joy and happiness will enter your life. Creating visualization makes this happen by using your emotions as triggers.
Learn the Art of Being Grateful
Being grateful means truly understanding how much we already do have without asking for any more. When you are in a state of gratitude, so many more things to be grateful for come our way.
Take a look around you, there is so much to be grateful for, but you need to stand up and take notice. When you start to understand the simple blessing such as butterflies or flowers that envelope your life, you will feel more joy. Once you feel more joy, you will manifest more positive and joyful events in your life.
Write Your Own Thoughts
If you really want to get the most out of committing yourself to positive actions, then you must consciously control your own thoughts on a daily basis. Sometimes you must control your thoughts on a moment-by-moment basis too.
If you find yourself going into negative or self-sabotaging thoughts, you need to take responsibility in the following several ways:
* Think positively
* Concentrate on all that you are grateful for
* Give yourself positive affirmations
By committing yourself to positive thoughts, the positive actions will follow as well.
