As promised I have attached a free downloadable Promise worksheet.
A few weeks before relaunching the blog I did a bit of research on promises and why, more often than not, we tend to break them. I had felt this overwhelming need to make a promise to myself but fear of my self-sabotage ways started to seep in.
Do you have trouble keeping promises with yourself? Do you make excuses rather than sticking to your goals?
What I learned was that the benefits could be more rewarding than the actual promise it self as they can improve our lives and help support your aspirations and aims. It can be a test of integrity which can help you recommit to your word and encourages confidence.
- Knowing we can rely on ourselves makes us feel better.
- If something were to come up that could prevent you from keeping your word, your integrity can help you recommit to your promise if you do find yourself off course.
- Gain all the approval you’ll ever need… your own!
- Break your goal or promise in to bite size pieces so that achieving your goal is easier to accomplish.
- Reward yourself!
For more details check out the article in the reference section that goes into further detail and print out the attached pdf and spend some time determining what it is it you want to quit or start doing. Figure out how and what it takes to achieve said goal and whether or not your serious about doing what it takes to achieve it. Fill out the worksheet and hang it on your bathroom mirror or in your cubicle or on the fridge or on the door of the cookie pantry.
We all pretty much have an idea of what it is we want to achieve but having a piece of paper sorta keeps you visually accountable. It’s no longer floating around in the back of our minds. Your promise is special no matter the size of it and it’s yours to cherish. Nurture it and let it grow and prosper and help you seize your aspirations.
