5/2/11 - Commitment Issues?

What does commitment mean to you?
Wikipedia’s Definition of commitment is:

commitment, interaction dominated by obligations. These obligations may be mutual, or self-imposed, or explicitly stated, or may not. Distinction is often made between commitment as a member of an organization (such as a sporting team, a religion, or as an employee), and a personal commitment, which is often a pledge or promise to ones’ self for personal growth.

So what does that mean to you? How committed are you to the relationships, habits, and activities in your life that make you better?

Another squat in paradise?

I was watching my friends this weekend train for the CrossFit Games which take place in July. Every week for the next 6 weeks we will have to perform a certain workout, and how well we do for our team helps our team to qualify for these games.

It was really apparent on these people’s faces even their body language, who was committed and who was not!

The most committed came in early warmed up, did the proper stretching and prepared mentally for the task at hand, the others didn’t and it showed in their workouts.

It is the same in your relationships! My friends always say how I have the best husband in the world (and I do), but we work very hard on our relationship and we are very committed to being the best spouse to each other that we can be!

Look at successful business entrepeneurs, if they were not completely committed to their product they would not be as successful as they could be, because if you are not fully committed then how do you expect others to be?

Your challenge this week, Fit ones, is to stay TRUELY committed to yourself and your task at hand! If it is working out, do it and commit to it and see the incredible results you will obtain.

If it is your relationships, when it gets hard, you argue, or things are just not going your way, remember your commitment to each other and see how strong your relationship will become…

For yourself, be committed to being the best that you can be each day, and see what a powerful, motivated, inspiring individual you will be not only to yourself but to others around you!

I find when I put my commitments on paper I am more accountable to them, and will follow thru with them a lot more diligently.

What are some commitments you want to make?
