Keeping our word to ourselves is crucial for achieving success in 2024


The journey of self-improvement is ongoing, and the start of a new year is a great time to recommit to our goals. Stay persistent, stay positive, and embrace becoming the best version of yourself. Matthew 6:33 "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."  Prioritize our relationship with God, seek His will, and align our lives with His teachings. The promise in the verse suggests that by seeking God first, everything else necessary for life will be provided.

 Seeking the kingdom of God involves prayer, practicing love and compassion towards others, and living a life guided by moral and ethical principles. By doing so, individuals may experience a sense of purpose, peace, and divine provision in their lives.

Keeping our word to ourselves is crucial for achieving success. When we commit to ourselves and follow through with them, several positive outcomes can result. Success often relies on the development of positive habits. We are more likely to establish habits that contribute to our well-being and success when consistently following through on our promises.

Success breeds success. Achieving the goals we set for ourselves, even small ones, can motivate us to pursue larger aspirations. When we commit to taking action and consistently follow through, it reduces the likelihood of procrastination. Procrastination often arises when we break promises to ourselves.

When we consistently break promises to ourselves, we erode our self-trust. We begin to doubt our ability to follow through on commitments, leading to a lack of confidence in our capabilities. Procrastination often serves as a way to avoid facing the discomfort associated with unmet commitments. We temporarily delay tasks to escape the negative feelings tied to our perceived shortcomings. Procrastination can become a form of self-sabotage. We might only prioritize tasks crucial for personal or professional development, hindering our overall success.

Begin with small, manageable tasks. Completing these tasks can rebuild confidence and set a positive tone for more significant commitments. Make small promises to yourself and consistently follow through. As you successfully meet these commitments, you'll gradually rebuild trust in your ability to keep your word.

Set a realistic timeline for achieving each objective. This could be weekly, monthly, or based on your personal preferences. Regularly assess your progress. Adjust your plan if necessary, and celebrate milestones along the way. Identify friends, family, or support groups to encourage and assist during challenging times.

Our plan should be flexible and adaptable. Adjustments are okay as we learn more about what works best for us. Regularly revisit and revise your plan to remain relevant to your current circumstances. Setbacks are a natural part of any journey. If you struggle, reassess your goals, seek support, and adjust your plan. Ultimately, the consistency of keeping your word to yourself will contribute significantly to your personal growth and success.
