In this article, I’m going to share 3 basic tips around commitment and it’s power in helping us gain confidence.
The Reality Of Commitment In Our World:
People in our modern society say lots of things, but do far less than they say they’ll do. When someone has excuses, they are always excused, when someone say’s “oh I’m so sorry, I double-booked myself.” It’s generally uncomfortable to hold them accountable by asking them to take a look at how they are setting up their life, and recognizing the impact their poor planning has on the people they love. It’s often scary to speak up when someone is acting out of alignment with themselves and being dismissive and careless about other people.
Here’s the thing, it’s good to respect someone else’s time, by holding to a commitment. Holding to that commitment also builds healthy human interaction and confidence.
If you want to gain confidence. There are 3 core points of gaining confidence and maintaining it in your life.
1. Hold Your Word To The Highest Honor:
Your word means something, and it has an impact on your life. Don’t forget to give it that credit.
The spoken word is impactful. If you want to gain more confidence, make sure that each word that comes out of your mouth is something you want and can commit to.
All words we speak have intention, and those intentions have an impact on your life. Unfortunately, our society doesn’t openly promote the power of words. It’s common and trending to make plans & then follow up with being busy. What’s acceptable on the level of society and how people are being on a large scale is the wrecker of confidence & self-trust.
“Do what you say and say only what you’ll do.”
If you do what you say and say only what you’ll do, something will shift for you and you’ll feel more powerful in your stance and your life. Hold integrity as one of your highest core values and give each one of your words power. If you want to gain confidence. There are 3 core points of gaining confidence and maintaining it in your life.
2. Commit and Hold That Commitment.
Commitments are a powerful confidence booster only when you do what you say you’ll do. Committing is fully giving yourself intentionally to something.
This is powerful because commitments build self-trust. The more you trust yourself, the more you’ll believe that risks are possible. You’ll make and take more risks.
The ability to take risks is one of the main components of success and confidence. A part of commitment is KEEPING all of your commitments. Doing as you say you’ll do.
To start, make small commitments & make sure to keep them.
Make it a DO-OR-DIE…
This means “I will show up for my commitment & the only reason why I couldn’t make it is if I’m dead. “DO OR DIE” It’s powerful when you commit to something FULL IN.
100% responsible for your word & your commitment. 100% showing up, regardless of what happens in life. Follow this concept and you will gain confidence.
3. Reschedule All Commitments That You Cannot Make
If you can’t make it, to keep your commitment in integrity makes sure to reschedule the commitment. Rescheduling your commitments, will help you gain confidence and build self-trust.
This means you say something specific, and along the lines of “I’m so sorry, my husband is in the hospital for a personal emergency. I cannot make the meeting. Can we reschedule for Sunday at 12:45 pm?”
If your not sick puking, bleeding out, in the hospital, or dealing with a family emergency, you are just making excuses.
I promise you that, commitment followed by excuses for why you can’t compete on your commitment, is a perfect recipe for NO CONFIDENCE, NO SELF-TRUST, & LOTS OF self-doubts.
Keep up with each and every one of your commitments.
If you want to gain confidence, clean up every one of your commitments.
