“Do what you say. If you’re not going to do it, don’t say you are. Have your word be the most important asset you have. Treat it like gold. If you treat it like gold it will bring you gold, you will be able to create what you want in the world. Each time you do what you say you’re going to do, you’re training yourself and the universe that you can be counted on. Then when you start to work on larger goals, when you say I am going to make more money, fall in love, write a book, or open a clinic, you will be able to do it.
When we constantly lie to ourselves it’s difficult for us to believe in ourselves. The New Year’s resolutions you never follow through on are just wishes. Your word, if not taken seriously, is nothing but noise. Communication is a great gift but your words have a much greater gift to give you. They can assist you in designing your life. They can give you power and freedom. When you make a commitment to do something for yourself or someone else, and you know you can follow through, you have power. When you want to change something in your life or achieve a goal and you know you’re capable of doing it, you have freedom.”
Debbie Ford, in “The Dark Side of the Light Chasers”
