Today’s Meme Quote About Commitment

“You always have two choices: your commitment versus your fear.” – Sammy Davis Jr.

Do you have a goal? Are you working hard, but it feels unreachable or unobtainable at times? If it does, use this inspirational meme to give you the courage to move forward. Go on, take the next step! If you need support, reach out to your friends and family to help you stay positive and focused on staying committed to your goal. Don’t let fear stop you.

If you are struggling to stay committed, then surprisingly, you may not be as fully committed as you need to be. I found a very interesting article regarding being fully committed to a goal and why some people seem to commit much easier. Have you ever heard of the 100% rule? It simply means that working 99% on something is hard – 100% is easy.

Author Susie Moore writes about the 100% rule in her article, “The 100 per cent rule: The simple advice that changed my life.” She identifies three components of the rule.

  1. Identify what specifically needs 100% of your attention – Not all parts of your life needs 100% commitment, but if you look deep within you, your heart knows what does – That little voice will tell you!
  2. Put in the effort – Doing something 99% is exhausting. Why? Because it weighs on your mind. It allows you to waver and skip out “once in a while.” This leads to a never-ending cycle of non-commitment. 100% means no wavering, no excuses!
  3. Repeat (Repeatedly) – “True happiness is the joy we experience when we move toward our potential.” The guilt is gone, which leaves more room to commit to your goal.

Give the 100% rule a chance and see if your commitment grows and your guilt and fear declines. I would love to hear your stories of committing to a goal or overcoming fear below!

Thanks for reading – be sure to share this meme quote about commitment with someone you care about!

Inspirational Meme About Being Different

Inspirational Meme: Always Be Different - janet & clarence
Inspirational Meme About Being Different - janet & clarence
Inspirational Meme – Always Be Different

This inspirational meme about being different is an image I created to show that we should try to embrace the traits that make us unique. If we try too hard to fit in, there is less that makes us memorable. If we focus on those aspects of life that make us healthy, happy and “special,” it will help us be irreplaceable!

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel

Do you need help in determining your unique traits? I found and article written by Olakunbi Korostensky,” Discovering And Embracing Your Uniqueness.” She suggested these three questions if you are still in doubt about what is special about you:

  1. Am I aware of how people react to me when I am with them?
  2. When in a crowd, am I more interested in voicing my opinion or do I listen intently to others?
  3. When decisions are made, do I simply go along with the opinions of the majority, or is upholding my values more important to me?

You Can’t Even Imagine This Love Yourself Meme

Remember to Love Yourself - janet & clarence
Love Yourself Meme
Love Yourself Meme

“Don’t forget to love yourself.” – Soren Kierkegaard

The uplifting words of this love yourself meme are meant to help you or someone you care about take some time each day to practice self acceptance. Look closely within to see what is important to you and make an effort to spend quality time doing those things you love.

What are the three components of loving yourself?

  1.  Take Care of Your Mind: Rid yourself of self-doubt, refuse negative self-talk  and reaffirm your gratitude for the good parts about you and your life.
  2. Take Care of Your Body: Practice healthy habits such as eating more natural, healthy foods, rejuvenate yourself with regular exercise, make sure you are getting enough rest and separation from stressors (such as work or devices). Do not rely on fad diets, quick-fix approaches or stimulants to keep your body in motion as the stress will reduce your ability for inner peace.
  3. Take Care of Your Spirit: This statement can mean different things to different people. Some may focus on faith, others may find a connection with nature, or even just focus on inner peace. Find the “things” in life that are meaningful to you. Remove the “things” in life that hold you back. Seek support from others to help you remove the negative things in from your life if it seems too difficult to do on your own.

Mind, Body, Spirit. These three things are discussed in more detail in the post by Z. Hereford, “Love Yourself or the Art of Self- Acceptance.” I recommend you read further if you would like more detail on loving yourself.

Lastly, if you struggle to find the time to practice inner love, take a moment to read my post on being less busy. I hope it can help you find more time to do things you enjoy.

Please share your thoughts about this Love Yourself Meme below. Thanks for visiting!
