#1359 - Commitment
Commitment is a statement of what is. From our perspective, you can know your commitments by your results, not by what you say your commitments are. We are all committed. We are all producing results. Conscious leaders own their commitments by owning their results. — from The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership: A New Paradigm for Sustainable Success by Jim Dethmer, Diana Chapman, and Kaley Klemp
I woke up this morning with these words in mind.
So, in my morning meditation, I wondered what my commitments are.
What am I committed to?
For real, not just with words.
Because there are the things I want to do, the things I say I want to do, the ones I promise to do, and the ones I really do.
But commitment is a statement of what is.
So, the latter are the ones revealing my real commitments.
If I look at myself honestly, there are misalignments between what my results say and the commitments I declare to myself and others.
Indeed, I still have work to do.
But hey, that's the journey.
And I grow and learn by looking into those misalignments with honesty and compassion.
Sometimes, I can't do it alone. It's so easy to deceive myself.
That's why I have mentors, coaches and friends keeping me honest with myself.
And that's why one of my commitments is to be a mentor, coach and friend to others.
If you need one, I'm here.
