As I was wondering about Chris’s site I stumbled upon his “Getting Started on Your Transformation” section. I have watched the show many time, but I never thought to head over to his website. Well the first part of the transformation is “Choosing a Promise.” I have to admit that I have made a lot of promises both weight loss wise and not in my 29 years of life that I failed to keep. The advice that he give is to make it so small that it is basically impossible to break or fail to complete.
I sit here at my desk with Monsters Inc. playing in the back ground wondering what promise I can make myself that I wouldn’t break even when my life gets hard or busy. I also wonder why I break so many promises to myself and don’t feel bad about it, but when I break a promise to someone else I feel such a sense of guilt and self loathing. Shouldn’t the promises I make to myself be just as important.
Promises are for the long run. I know important my physical health is and losing weight is my goal, but I have decide not to start off with a fitness promise, but to make my promise one for the mind and spirit as those are just as important along this journey as getting my body healthy. I promise myself that I will read Christian Larson’s Promises Piece – modified for The Secret daily.
There is something about this piece that often helps me overcome hard times. I hope that by reading this piece daily that I will be able to overcome any obstacle even when going against the odds, and that I will be able to live my live by these words and open myself up to all of the greatness out in the universe that is just waiting for me to open myself up to it.
Though the video is from I think the end of 2012 Mayi Carles has a great video on The Snowball Effect which hits on the point that Chris Powell makes about making promises so small that you can’t fail it. If you haven’t made little promises to yourself to build a great foundation made up of little promises kept to your self then join in on choosing a promise.
Updated on August 03, 2014: I have failed to keep the above promise, so I will be trying to read that piece as much and I can and I will have to do another post when I discover the promise that I can make to myself that I won’t break. I thought that this one was pretty simple, but clearly it isn’t.
The Universe is in my thoughts there by so are you. Be blessed.
