2.3 Love Others
2.3 destiny- what you are committed to defines you.
What you are committed to defines you and determines your destiny.
Your commitments will define you. So, whatever you are committed to drives your behavior.
We become whatever we are committed to. Every choice has consequences that will travel past our years of existence. So it becomes important to let go of old routines, develop new habits and intentionally change the way that you think. It takes effort and choice. To change your life, you must first change the way that you think. To change the way that you think, change the way that you feel, to change the way that you feel, change your behavior.
Being committed to something greater than yourself redefines you and changes your destiny. So be careful how you think, your life is shaped by your thoughts. Our receptiveness determines whether or not ideals that are bigger than you will actually become a basis for your choices or not.
Un-receptiveness is the result of a closed mind, a superficial mind, or a distracted mind. A receptive mind will become a doer of ideals which are greater than yourself. This is the path to an enriched world around you and your future.
- Don’t change what you do, but change your attitude toward what you do.
Instead of doing things from yourself, start doing what you do because of reasons bigger than yourself. Connect the common tasks of life to ideals that are bigger than yourself. Learn to stay in touch with ideas that are bigger than you.
- When choices are made based on what is bigger than ourselves, rather than our simple feelings at that moment, we become
part of something greater than ourselves.
- Give priority to causes greater than yourself, or self-centeredness will collapse around you in the form of chaos.
