Consistency & Commitment

Jul 24, 2014

How are you doing with your consistency commitment?

The last blog was about doing something you were passionate about for at least 10 minutes a day. How is it going? Have you been able to make yourself a priority everyday? Did you take the time and ask yourself the question, “What is my passion?”

Congrats to those of you who have put yourself first, as you continue with consistency in your chosen passion. Keep it up, for the more you can do it, the more easily it will become second nature. And that is a promise!

Now, for those of you who may have started, and quit. Or, thought about it, but didn’t do anything with it: without berating or judging yourself with your ego of self-criticism, begin again. You may feel frustrated, angry, or saying to yourself, “There I go again, not following through with what I say.” Whatever your feelings are about not following through with your passion, just be with it, not figuring it out, but actually just BEING with it. Allow yourself to be the observer, and then LET IT GO and begin again.

*”An average human breathes 17,000 to 21,000 times a day. This rate can change from one person to another and is dependent on factors such as the health of the individual and the mood a person may be in.”

How cool is that? In other words, you have more than 17,000 chances to begin again. As the famous Nike tagline states, “Just Do It.” Don’t try, just do it.

Reread the last blog post, Touching Your Practice Everyday, for reminder details….  post your comments below and let me know how you are doing. Be brave and post your commitment.

  2. I think I need to amend my passion statement from practicing calligraphy daily to engaging in one of my chosen art forms daily.

    • D’Arcy I invite you to ask yourself, “What would be best for me now?” If it is practicing one of your chosen art forms, then for sure change. But, please make sure you listen and choose from your heart (passion), not out of obligation. As you know, calligraphy is one of the five excellences.
