The Greatest Roadblock to High Performance

" Start honoring the commitments you make to yourself with the same level of urgency and priority you give to others." -James McPartland

Who's the person we most often BREAK OUR WORD to?


Usually, it's ourselves.


Whether a colleague or friend, we promise to meet deadlines, show up for appointments, or help out with a task. But when it comes to the promises we make to ourselves, it's excuse after excuse-- without apology.


And it’s the most damaging thing we can do!


Breaking promises we make to ourselves takes a huge toll on our mental health and chips away at our self-esteem. It's not just an inconvenience to be dismissed, it's a silent betrayal to be loudly called out.


It destroys our confidence.

It shatters trust.

And then... it renders us ineffective.


Most of us want the same thing-- meaningful relationships, success in our careers, and to make a positive impact. Here's what I've learned...


The ONLY way you have a chance at having those desires fulfilled is to start honoring the commitments you make to yourself with the same level of urgency and priority you give to others.


If you want to rebuild confidence, restore trust, and reclaim your effectiveness -- start prioritizing YOU.


Because if you don’t possess those attributes in yourself, how in the world are you going to give them away to anyone else?
