The Power of CommitmentMay 04, 2022
13 years ago I began to discover the power of COMMITMENT.
Here in this photo I am 27 years old and just signed my divorce papers, looking into the future with hope and relief.
Relief, because behind me were the months of emotional turmoil with my then-husband who had a really hard time coming to terms with the fact that we both were deeply wounded adolescents who had to take the self-discovery journey on our own to heal those wounds.
Hope, that I could begin to live with a renewed sense of authenticity, even if it meant leaving everything behind and starting my life from scratch.
Here in this photo, I am standing on the threshold of the new chapter. I just discovered the healing power of physical MOVEMENT. I was not ready to talk about my feelings at that time because I didn’t know how to access them safely without being crushed by the tsunami of them, but I made a discovery:
When I moved, I felt better.
A couple of months later, I met my very first coach.
He was a fitness guru.
Well known in his early days, now in his seventies, still willing to share his wisdom and build a legacy.
I’ve never made a stronger promise to anyone as I did to him. I told him I’d train every day.
And I did.
On the days when my commitment was fresh, it was easy to ride that commitment “high”.
On the days when I didn’t feel like training, and the dullness was setting in, I’d imagine my elderly coach's face and his eyes locked into me and I dared not to fail on my word.
My commitment gave me FUEL.
I’ll tell the full story in my book soon but I tapped into that energy of commitment to transfer it into an area that I am currently choosing to GROW.
And true GROWTH does not depend on our moods.
True growth is built on our WILL.
Our passion is based on our deepest WHY. On the audacity to really surprise yourself with the fullness of your true potential.
I used to fear commitment as I thought I’d lose my freedom.
Life has taught me that I can find my true freedom when I discover the power of Commitment.
It was not easy to really “get” this topic on the level of embodiment. And only now do I see the enormous FREEDOM that lies in it.
