A Promise of Personal Branding

I don’t do resolutions. I don’t do goals. I do personal promises. A resolution is something I find very easy to pass off, to neglect if you will. A goal is great- if you get there. If not, you wallow in your own self pity thinking about how you failed. Granted, failure is something we all need in life. A good failure only helps us get back at “it”, only to eventually succeed beyond your initial expectations. But a promise, that is personal. I don’t know about you, but when I make a promise to someone, I do it. This promise is a connection you have within yourself. From your mind to your heart. A “Promise”can also mean a capacity for good, similar to a value that is to be realized in the near future. So, 2014, I promise you & I the following:

I promise to run 299 miles in 2014- which is 1 more mile than my total for 2013 (well 297.49 miles in 2013) I rounded up!

I promise to devote 3 hours to myself and only myself each week.

I promise to continue my writing, regardless if not a single soul reads it.

I promise to believe more in the good of mankind rather than the bad.

I promise to express my love & gratitude to my friends & family more often.

You just read my promise for personal branding in 2014, So what promise will you make yourself this year?

  1. Very nicely said. I made a promise to fit myself into my days… and this is very challenging sometimes, with a husband, 4 kids, 4 in-law kids, 10 ~ very soon-to-be 11 ~ grandkids, my Mom’s Caregiving and Blogging.

    I began my promise yesterday when I left all the cooking and baking for my big family’s traditional New Year’s Day Feast at our home for 45 minutes ~ and headed, with my husband, to Bristol Town Beach for the Winter Wish Swim ~ a Polar Plunge. We had a blast… albeit a 25 degrees blast with frozen bodies. Dinner was moved back an hour and all of our kids, grandkids and my Mom were SO SO SO excited and happy that we did such a thing.

    It’s working so far! Thanks for the wisdom…
