Prominent Satisfaction

If I look back, I observe that I have broken lot of promises I have done to myself; may it be the promise of simply witnessing the sunrise or may it be writing down 500 words daily or may it be submitting technical articles before deadlines. I know the guilt of dishonoring my words (commitments) may it be small or big! 

I hated this feeling of embarrassment which comes within whenever I failed to keep a promise to myself. 

So, in order to work upon this, I changed the way I promised myself. I stopped promising many things to myself. And I shifted to promising ONE small thing for a day. For eg.

  • today, write one blog post 
  • today, hit the gym
  • today, sit in silence for 10 mins

By keeping one small promise in a day, I experienced the biggest self-satisfaction. 

I learned that the greatest contentment comes from keeping a promise to your own self. It feels no less than a reward, to honor your words and execute it into an action, no matter how small it may be. 

What you promised today?
