Stop breaking promises to yourself – act on your goals today.

How many times have you made a commitment to yourself but not followed through on it? Perhaps you’ve promised to go for a jog after work, only to abandon the idea when a colleague invited you for a happy-hour cocktail. Or maybe you’ve got all excited about learning French, but after a few classes, your books are gathering dust on a shelf.

Far too often, we break the promises that we make to ourselves. To see how damaging this is, let’s take a look from a different perspective.

Consider a hypothetical friend. We can call her Pam. Every time you make a plan with Pam to do something important together, she cancels on you at the last moment. And to make it worse, she usually has a completely pathetic excuse like, “I’d love to play tennis with you like we agreed, but this Netflix show I’m watching is so good. I need to watch another episode.” Pam is always claiming to be starting a diet. But a couple of days later, you find her washing down a pepperoni pizza with a large coke.

Most likely, you’d pretty quickly get irritated and unimpressed with Pam, right?

But this is exactly how you are treating yourself when you break your promises. Blowing off an evening run, a French class or a calorie-controlled diet might not seem like a big deal at the time. But it is, because when you keep making and then breaking promises to yourself, you are letting yourself down every time.

So try to form a habit of keeping your promises. You can make it easier by keeping them realistic. If you want to run your first half marathon, don’t just promise yourself that you’ll sign up and run. Start by promising yourself that you’ll run one mile a day, four times a week. That’s a commitment you can probably keep. And once you’ve proved to yourself that you can do it, then promising yourself that you’ll run two miles, four times a week won’t seem so tough.

Keep at it, and you’ll train your mind to keep your promises. You’ll build a new, higher expectation for yourself, that will make it easier to keep future promises. That’s got to be better than being like Pam.
