We’re all taught as children to keep our word to others, right? To mean what we say – and to follow up when we tell someone we’re going to do something for them.
This also applies to keeping the promises we make to ourselves. And they’re just as crucial to living a successful life and feeling content.
Breaking promises to ourselves is one of the main reasons people fail to reach goals and feel bad about themselves.
• You swear you won’t eat and drink that much again – but Friday Happy Hour rolls around and you do.
• You tell yourself that you’ll find a routine that is better for your body– but then you go back to what you know.
• You promise yourself that you’re going to put a certain amount of money into a savings account out of each paycheck – but you keep forgetting.
The result is the same in each case: You feel terrible about yourself AND you don’t make progress toward your goal.
Here are some tips to break the cycle.
