Do You Honor Your Commitments?
Are you reliable? Do you keep your word? Do you show up when you say you will? Do you make promises that you end up breaking? Do you flake out at the last minute? Making excuses as to why you can't show up? Do you follow through with commitments you make?
If you are like most people, you read these questions and thought about your interactions with others — your spouse or best friend maybe? What about you?
Do you promise yourself to start that diet tommorrow. Or look for a new job next week? Or maybe you make a commitment to wake up earlier in the morning so that you can get to work on time without feeling like a train wreck — only to hit the snooze button six times in a row. You'll start running tomorrow, you'll write that book soon, you'll finally tell that person how you feel. But you don't. You make excuses, engage in distractions, and flake out — time and time again.
Every time you fail to show up for yourself, every time you bail with the grandest excuses, you are telling the universe, "I am not responsible. Don't bring great things my way, because I can't handle them." And guess what? The universe will oblige. Universal energy doesn't interpret things, it will reveal exactly what we ask for. So when we hit that snooze button, we are telling the universe, "Oh, no thanks — I'm too busy for such amazing things to come my way." And, the universe will oblige.
Your life is absolutly all about you, and it's time to start acting like it. It is time to be committed to yourself. It is time to keep the promises you make to yourself. It is time to make yourself a priority. When you do, when you show up for yourself, the universe will oblige.
