Let’s face it: Losing weight can be tough. If it were easy, we’d all be at our goal weight!
But let’s not confuse tough with “impossible.” Weight loss is DEFINITELY possible. Achieving your goals is possible.
It takes some hard work both in the kitchen and in the gym–or wherever it is you decide to get your sweat on!
But it actually even goes beyond that. (We’ll talk about that in just a second!)
First, really quick: Do a Google search, and you’ll see hundreds and hundreds of diets, programs, and weight loss plans.
And guess what? A lot of them do work.
So, why do so many people still fail?
That’s because the secret path to transformation all goes back to one fundamental thing: building integrity through keeping Personal Promises.
Building Integrity with Yourself Through the Power Promise
How often do you make promises to others, whether it’s to show up to an activity, help your friend move, meet someone for dinner, take out the trash… you get the point?
Most likely, you do everything within your power to uphold the promises you make to others.
But what about the promises you make to yourself?
How often do you say you’re going to do something for yourself, and then you fall short?
Take a second to think about that.
When was the last time you said, “I’m going to [insert an activity] later today,” and then you didn’t follow through?
Successful, lifelong transformation comes down to personal integrity. It all comes down to keeping your PERSONAL PROMISE.
What Is The PERSONAL Promise?
The Personal Promise is a promise you make to yourself that you do everything within your power to keep.
It’s a commitment you make and uphold, whatever it takes.
These Power Promises are just that–powerful.
They are the foundation for a successful transformation.
As you keep your Power Promise, you build your personal integrity.
You do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to.
You strengthen your integrity and build trust with the person that matters most: YOU.
When life tries to knock you down (and it will try over and over, and it will succeed sometimes!), you hold to your Power Promise and weather the storm, no matter what your Power Promise is.
Keeping this Power Promise forges an unbreakable bond between your words and actions, and it creates an incredibly positive forward momentum.
HOW TO MAKE A PERSONAL PROMISE:
- Your Personal Promise should be a simple, attainable commitment you know you will be able to keep every single time.
“Starting off, your Power Promise activates your transformation. It is the most basic form of action toward your goal. As long as you are keeping your Power Promise, you’re in the game. The moment you quit is the moment you stop keeping your Power Promise,”
hen making a Power Promise to yourself, start off by making just ONE. This will help you stay focused.
Here are some examples of Power Promises. You’ll see that they are SMALL (but important) and not majorly drastic changes:
- I promise to get moving for five minutes a day, five days this week.
- I promise to drink at least 2L of water each day this week.
- I promise to go on a walk with my dog for 4 days this week.
- I promise to replace my afternoon soda with a healthier drink, like flavored water every day this week.
- I promise to eat breakfast every day this week.
As you can see, Power Promises are everything. Without personal integrity, lasting transformation becomes impossible.
