I’m not the kind of person who waits till New Year’s Eve to start thinking about how I’m going to change my life. This year the desire to do something different came in early December and it had nothing to do with flossing twice a day, getting to the gym more often or eating healthier. I decided I was going to go big or go home. I decided, instead, to make an outrageous commitment.
Here’s how I define an “outrageous commitment:”
- It’s not time-bound. It doesn’t have to happen in the next 12 months starting on January 1. It doesn’t even have to happen in the next decade. It’s just something you want to do at some point before you die. If you want a time goal, you can define the period.
- It comes from deep within. It’s not rational, it’s not logical, it may not make any sense to the mental mind. It’s just a desire that burns within and is dying to be acknowledged and expressed.
- It’s surprising, even to those who know you best. It’s best if it surprises the people who think they know you best because that means it’s truly something that’s from deep within. It’s even better if it surprises you!
- It’s a commitment you make for you and only you. It’s not something you are doing to prove to anyone else (or even yourself). It’s just a commitment that you want to make.
Okay, so here’s my outrageous commitment: I am going to do yoga teacher training. I’m aiming to do it in the next two years but if that fails, before I’m 40 is fine. Now, you tell me, what’s your outrageous commitment?
