It's easy to make promises to yourself when you're inspired. It's easy to ride that wave of positive feelings and say "yes! I'm going to do this. I'm going to workout every day and eat right!" And as long as that positive emotion remains, it is easy to keep those promises. But the real test comes when that feeling fades. What do you do when you're feeling tired, frustrated, or sad? Making a real commitment to yourself means following through even when things get tough or you'd just rather not. Making a real commitment to yourself means staying loyal and true to your word, no matter what! Making a real commitment to yourself means knowing that you are worth this effort because, well, you are!
