Goals Vs Commitments


TGIF everyone,

Only four days into the new year, and I can feel around me all the vibes and energies everyone is putting toward making 2019 an epic year. It really feels refreshing to see how mindsets are been shifted, and people are claiming more of what they believe they deserve. You have to believe it to achieve it, guys. Let’s keep this momentum and, together, we will thrive.


New Year’s Resolution.

By the way, how are you doing with your new year ‘s resolutions so far? The word on the street is that people are not really obsessed with new year’s resolutions as they used to be back in the days. In fact, I have written about this just a couple years ago and I have also shared with you what I have been doing instead. Who remembers anything from a couple months ago, let alone a couple years ago…? đŸ˜€ Don’t sweat it, refresh your memory HERE !


The Word Of The Year

However, if you’re still fond of new year’s resolutions and it’s been working great for you, stick with it, darling. We do what works best for us, right!? đŸ˜‰ Anyway, for the sake of trying something new, go on and read about choosing a Word Of The Year.


Something to consider

Choosing a word of the year has been working well for me, but I have read about something that has sparked my interest and gives another perspective on goals and, I wanted to share that with you. – By the way, I shared this with my newsletter friends and I received some great feedback. They love the idea and appreciated me sharing it with them. If you are not on my e-mail list, I suggest you sign up now. I promise that I will never spam you. In fact I must say, once you’re on that list, you may regret not being on it sooner! đŸ™‚ –


Anyways, back to the new perspective on having goals. It’s good to have goals, but we fail to realize that what truly lies between your goal and actually achieving it, is commitment!

Goals Vs Commitments

The difference between goals and commitments is that a goal is something you want to achieve (your desire), such as running a marathon for instance. On the other hand, a commitment is a rhythm of life that puts you in a place to get there. In this case, running four miles five days a week to prepare for the marathon.


Do you see what’s going on here? We all want to achieve our goals, but not everyone is consciously committed to put the work in!
In my book, goals are widely overrated and commitments are majorly underrated!


Whether you chose to stick with new year’s resolutions or choosing a word of the year or having a bucket list, or just having rules of life, there’s no right or wrong to this. Just remember that you need to commit yourself to taking daily, weekly, or monthly actions that will lead to achieving your yearly or life goals.


Goals are the desired end result, but only commitment to a working process gets you there


Thank you for reading.

Love & Light,

    Ugh, the new year is starting off a little bad for me, I have a stomach bug! Wah! Hope to recover soon from this yuck!! I got the Cultivate What Matters planner this year to work towards some goals. I am not going to stress myself out over it, though… and, actually, last year I took off from doing any kind of goals/resolutions and it was nice! I just love those white/black joggers with that red jacket! đŸ™‚

    You are so right. I just finished my vision board. It helped to clarify what I really want. But that was just a first step. This one was fun one. Next steps will be harder. o)))
