Promises – The key to how we feel about ourselves

The most important promises we make are the promises we make to ourselves. 

And yet...How many times have we told ourselves, 

"I’m going to the gym every day for the next month," 


"I’m going to lose 20 lbs. in 2 weeks." 

Many of us are great at making lists, but at the end of the day, we see only one or two items checked off. 

We minimize how important those promises are because we think nobody will ever know since we made the promise privately. 

We should be honoring ourselves as the most important person.  

We must strike a balance in our lives. 

Too much of anything isn’t good. 

Having a big bowl of ice cream…good, 

Five big bowls …not good. 

Striving to be better every day is what it’s all about. We’re all a work in progress and it’s important to be kind to ourselves. Only compare ourselves to ourselves, and no one else.  

Confidence, self-assurance, and happiness can only come from within. When we focus our energy on being the best we can be, all the other relationships in our lives will improve. Make those realistic promises and keep them because at the end of the day we have to be true to ourselves.

What promise will you make to yourself today? Commit to it!
