There is a chapter in one of the coolest books I’ve read. It’s entitled “The Almighty Decision.” The chapter begins with this:
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
W.H. Murray; explorer, mountain climber, committer
(page 191, YOU are a BADASS by Jen Sincero)
You must commit yourself fully to a healthier life. Higher quality food, more supportive friends, greater physical activity, more creativeness, less garbage and more reflection. You must commit yourself to these things because you DESERVE to feel better. You deserve it. You’re worthy.
If you commit part-time, you get part-time happiness. If you wonder why you’re not feeling excellent consistently, when you make a couple half-hearted changes to your life, here is why. You’re not all in.
COMMITMENT. VOW. ENGAGEMENT. PLEDGE. PROMISE. UNDERTAKING. ATTENTION.
DEDICATION. CONCENTRATION. EFFORT. GRIT.
MORE EFFORT. PROOF.
First, when you read those words, how did they make you feel?
Second, when you read those words, what did you think of? Perhaps changes you can make?
If you’ve been a regular reader, you’ll know I am a BIG fan of Danielle LaPorte and her work with the concept of desire. Desire is important. Get in touch with it. It will drive your life toward all that feels good. It will drive you to add and subtract things in life that get you closer to feeling good on a daily basis.
I’ll leave you with 55 quotes on desire & making it happen, from Danielle’s website.
