Most Important Lesson I Have Learned
If someone had told me I was not reaping all that I longed for because I was not keeping my word, I would have been insulted and very defensive. I was challenged recently to keep my word and every promise I made. Seems simple right? Wrong.
What I found when I looked very deeply, I told people all the time that I would call them later and would get to busy and think no big deal. IT IS A BIG DEAL. I would say I’ll be there at 5 and get there at 5:05 not realizing that it mattered, I mean it’s only 5 minutes right? Wrong. IT MATTERS. I would tell myself I would write 5 articles this week and only did 4 because I was tired one night. 4 is almost 5. Its good enough right? Wrong. Almost is not good enough.
What I discovered is that when I started paying attention to what I was telling myself what I was going to do and telling others what I would do, I was in essence giving my word and when I did not follow through I was breaking my word. Since I started keeping every promise I made, no matter how small, things started happing.
I have a good life, the law of attraction has worked miracles, positive thinking and gratitude have done amazing things for my life. NOTHING, however has been as astounding to me as what has happened since I started paying very close attention to my word. Just to give you an example. My business income has doubled since I took on this challenge, my relationships with my friends and family have become better than I have ever known them, I have more free time, and I have manifested meetings with some very prominent people.
What I learned in this challenge. The subconscious mind works wonders and it listens to the words you speak. This is why affirmations are such a powerful tool. What most people do not realize is that your subconscious sees the way you honor your word and if you can not keep the simplest of promises like returning a phone call then it assumes you may not keep the promises that you make to yourself as well so it takes a lot longer for the affirmations to work because you are fighting against what your subconscious knows to be true and that is that you DO NOT MEAN everything you say, because if you did you would keep even the smallest of promises.
My challenge to you this month is to honor your word. Notice the little things you are not following through on that you promised you would. Keep your promises to yourself and to others.
