I'm talking about your commitment.
In life, we have multiple commitments. A lot of the time we have no idea they are there sculpting the decisions we make. It sits in the background of every discussion and experience you have.
When it comes to work, it may be that you have a commitment to maintain your job. This sitting in the background may have you listening to exactly what your boss is saying. You know that he/she makes the final call on you being employed with that company. If you fulfill on what they ask you to do, you maintain your employment and ultimately your commitment.
It also can go another way too. You may have a commitment to being single. You dont know it, but you do! Having this in the background of your conversations and experiences may show up as you avoiding interactions with potential mates. You long for a mate, but never can get yourself to let go and take a leap. You don't like it but its safer there.
It takes a certain amount of dissecting of yourself to see where there is a commitment in an area of your life. If you want to see real magic, you have to see it and decide if its working or not working for you!
I have a commitment to launch my own cable channel in my career. My interactions daily are colored with the glasses of "how will I make this dream a reality?" I see lessons and potential leads to making this happen pop up all over my life.
Sit back and reflect. Where and what are your commitments in life?
They're as familiar as your shadow...
