INSPIRED COACHING FOR EQUESTRIAN WOMEN WHO WANT MORE
Ya In or Ya Out?
April 29, 2014
Spring has sprung and we're all flying high on our new commitments, new way of being, new goal, new love, new detox program and new life plan! Right?
Are you with me on this? Are you smirking because you're on day three of "the new deal" and you've already cheated?? Or fallen off? Or found fault? Or? Or? Or????
The sun came out, the temps rose, the trees are budding and all of a sudden we are inspired to clean up, sit up, shape up, cuddle up and get our "A" game on. This is fantastic and I am all for change, growth and fresh starts...of course I am....
But maybeeeeee....(Anyone who loves Louis CK is chuckling right now...)
How many of us will achieve our goal? Reach the weight? Make it work? Stick to the program? Get it done??? See it through?
There is a HUGE difference between wanting something and actually GETTING it.
What's the secret?
99% is a bitch. 100% is a breeze.
A powerful step in changing something or creating something is our DECISION to do so. Clarity on what we want and where we are going is vital...without that, we are asleep at the wheel and at the mercy of what comes our way. We all know many people like this. Hey, not a judgement, just a fact.
For those of us who want something more...want to create something better, deeper, fuller, healthier...well, it comes down to an important element- COMMITMENT.
Being 99% committed seems like a good idea, doesn't it? I mean, 99%, that's a lot! That's right up there! So close. There's just the little issue of that 1 wiggly percent. And you know what that wiggly percent represents???
NOT HITTING OUR MARK. Excuses. Failure. Going back to old, dysfunctional habits. Cheating. When the door's not shut there's a chance it could be thrown open. That's the 1%.
So what does this all mean? It means that if you want something, and I mean really, really, REALLY want something- you must commit to it 100%. End of story. No wiggle room. No excuses. No maybe's, someday's or later's….Burn that damn bridge, there will be no retreating!!! If that makes you cringe, then hey, maybe you're just "interested" and that's ok, but know where you really stand.
If you're committed, then make it real.
Today. Now. Yes. Commit. All in.
It's a simple concept, yet you'd be surprised how many of us wake up every day and struggle with whether or not to keep our commitments, stick to our plan, or carry out our action plan. Successful people have a "no exceptions rule" when it comes to their commitments. They've burned the bridge and there's no going back. All energy and focus is moving forward and dedicated to their "cause."
It's a decision. It's a choice. It's up to each of us what we want to be 100% committed to and what we're merely "interested" in.
What are you committed to? Your partner? Your career path? Your life's mission? Your health? Your friends? Your spiritual path? Your personal growth? Throw your heart in and watch the miracles unfold.
