When it comes to sticking to your commitments to yourself, are you any good at it?
Tonight I sat down to record the video below and share a few important things we are learning in the Off the Backburner Challenge.
I knew it was risky to try and record the video while my whole family was home and my kids might be loud, but it was on my calendar and I was committed to it.
I covered so many important things including:
- the obstacles to achieving your goals and creating habits
- why waiting to be moved by "authentic" thoughts is a losing game
- the thoughts you believe that are not helping you
- how working on your goals is a trust building exercise with yourself
meanwhile my kids were both. melting. down.
If you watch, you will see a few moments where I pause and think
"Is everything okay out there?"
"Should I stop the recording/ run out to see what is happening/ scratch this whole project?"
Part of me wanted to.
But in that moment, I knew my amazing husband had everything under control (or else he would be calling for me to help him) and I was committed this time I had given myself to work.
I also knew that even though the video wouldn't be a high enough quality that I could use it for one of my classes, the content would be helpful to those of you ready to rethink habits and goal-setting, not to mention amusing to those of you who know what it's like to have your kids meltdown while you are working from home.
I don't always do this perfectly, but today I took my own advice even during an epic two child meltdown and it was caught on tape. :)
Enjoy and share your questions and your thoughts in the comments below.
