What started a few weeks ago is building in momentum and more and more people are following.  

Today I would like to talk about promises. Promises are a really important subject.  People ask me, “Why is it so hard to trust people” and I ask them, “why is it so hard to keep a promise?”

You will hear me talk a lot about the buses, for example, the career bus.  If you’re not happy about what you are doing, try speaking up, respectfully of course.  If your boss continues to make promises but doesn’t deliver on them, then it might be time to get off the bus. Just understand that nothing will change if you don’t speak up.

Then there is the financial bus.  You promise yourself “I’m not going to buy that” or “I’m going to live within a budget.” or maybe its “ I promise I’m not going to spend money.” “I promise I’m not going to gamble.”

It is okay to make promises to yourself and to others, but be careful about making promises you cannot keep.

Then there’s the health bus.” I’m going to get healthy.” “I’m going to eat healthy today.” “I’m going to run on the beach.”  “I’m going to go for a bike ride.” If you want to get healthier, you’ve got to make time for exercising and eating better, you have to put in the work.  

Do it for you.  Do it when no one is watching.

And don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep.  Nobody wins!

Remember, “Underpromise and over deliver.”  It is a phrase that I learned from days of working in the stock market. .  Don’t just talk… act. Don’t say….show. Don’t promise…prove. Talk is cheap.  If you say you’re going to do something, do it!

If you say you’re going to have a goal, write it down.  What is a goal without a plan? It’s a dream. You cannot live this life in dreams.

Every day two things are going to happen.  The sun will rise and the sun will set. What are your sunrise and sunset?
