Too many times we say we are going to try to lose a few pounds, or try to pay off bills.
The subliminal message of try is,"it's okay not to succeed because we are only trying."
The subliminal message of committing,"I have to do this, there is no alternative."
Which do you think will yield the best results? Then make a commitment to something important and press forward. Make it public if you need an additional motivator.
Once you make the commitment the change becomes easier, not necessarily easy, but easier.
