are you committed to becoming better? do you have goals that you are committed to?
how committed are you? are you achieving your goals? are you becoming better?
commitment is the decision and dedication to a goal, to a task, to being or to doing.
when you are committed, you continually make decisions to be or to do what you are committed to. the commitment gives you power to be who you want to be, to do what you want to do.
your commitment creates the energy for you to move forward, to becoming better to attaining your goal.
do you have goals that you have not reached? are you being your best and doing your best?
if you are not, what are you committed to? it is something other than your goal. you are committed to the pleasure of being or doing something else.
there is a tipping point to commitment, a point at which you be and do what is needed to be better, to reach your goal. everyone’s tipping point is different, if you are not at your tipping point you are not fully committed. you are not feeling enough pain to fully commit to your goal, to being better.
why do you want to be better? why do you want to attain that goal? your why needs to be bigger than the pleasures that can distract you from your goals.
are you committed to being better? are you committed to your goals?
i love reading, studying, learning. i love novels, personal growth, biographies, wellbeing, nature, and so many more.
i can get lost in a book, captivated and curious. what’s going to happen next? what new information am i going to read and learn that will help me to become a better me? what am i going to read in the next page, the next chapter, the next book that’s going to help me to grow and expand?
books have given me so much, i am who i am today because of the books that i have read. i have many books – some books i’ve read multiple times, i have a stack of books yet to read. i have books that i have read just a bit and set aside, i have books that i read a little from every day.
many books have been very significant in my life for my growth and expansion, being the best me, and in transforming me and my life.

tell me, what has been a meaningful book to you? what are you reading now?
What do you want? Are choosing what it is that you most want?
Or, are you living a life that you are comfortable living?
It is easy to get comfortable, to think that we are living the life that we want to live, which we most the time are. But… are you growing? expanding? creating? Are you becoming more? Are you doing more?
I get comfortable in my life. And I am so happy and grateful when I become aware that I have become comfortable in an area of my life; that I am not being all that I want to be, that I am not doing all that I want to do, that I am not experiencing all that I want to experience.
What do I want? What is most important to me? Am I doing all that I can? Am I creating the life that I want to live, or am I living in ‘comfort’?
It is time for me to ‘rock the boat’ in some areas of my life. I feel it, I am aware of it, and now it is time to create the life that I want to live and experience in those areas of my life!
What do you want? Are you creating the life that you want to live, or are you living in ‘comfort’? Is it time for you to rock the boat?
Growth and transformation are ever spiraling upwards. The goals that we create for ourselves, the visions we build and imagine for ourselves guide us to take action in becoming who we want to become, in doing what we want to do and in experiencing what we want to experience.
Our vision that we continue to make clear from our dreams and desires determines the goals that we have in our lives. Our goals and visions for our present moment, for the life that we want to live. As we do and be what our goals determine us to do and be we create the life that we want to live. As we live the life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows. An expanding vision creates new and expanded goals. As we do and be what our new and expanded goals guide us to do and be, we create the new life that we want to live. As we live the new life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows again, we create more new and expanding goals. We grow continually, ever spiraling upwards.
