2 Questions to Inspire You to Keep Your Commitments

Earlier this year things were moving and shaking in my Etsy shop. I had my best first quarter ever this year and few good shows.

As summer progressed I realized that things in my Etsy shop had really slacked off. Sales for the last couple of months have been  a lot slower than usual.

I decided that this month I was going to have to make a commitment to my Etsy shop again, and let this month be the start to a successful holiday selling season.


Making a commitment to yourself is easy, it's the follow through that is the challenge. When we make a commitment to other we tend to keep those commitments so not to let anyone down.

To achieve that commitment you make to yourself requires a little more work, and you really need to look inside yourself to find the courage you need to move forward and achieve your goals.

Here are a couple of questions to get you thinking about how you are going to keep those commitments to yourself and your business.

What would you have to believe about yourself to set commitments and consistently realize them?
and
What thoughts would empower you to always fulfill your commitments?

Once you realize the answer to these questions you will have the unlimited power to achieve all the commitments you create for yourself.

Do you find it challenging to keep commitments to yourself?

This commitment has inspired me to research new ideas to generate some buzz around my Etsy shop, and I am excited to share some of them with you during the week of September 23 - 27 for Your Etsy Shop Reinspired for the Holidays.

If this post inspired you share with your social networks. Thanks!

  1. I find it very challenging to keep commitments to myself, even though I set goals and write daily To Do Lists. I tend to put the needs / demands of others first.

    1. I do as well LeAnn, but I find that if I plan on one main project a week I tend to accomplish more then if I just add a bunch of items to my to-do list. Don't forget to take time for yourself.

    1. JoJo I am sure that if you put your mind to something you can accomplish it! Try committing to one thing and see how it goes, you may be surprised at what you can accomplish.

  6. Commitments to oneself are much like New Year's resolutions - all too easily broken. They become inconvenient, something that one can do "tomorrow" - or the day after that, or maybe next week - or the week after ...

    Having an Etsy shop is like having a newborn baby, it needs constant tending 24/7. If you slack of just the tiniest, down go the views and your shop becomes lost beneath a sea of resellers.

    I too look forward to hear how and by what means you revitalize your etsy shop. Wishing you the very best of success in your new commandment. :)

  7. Anna, commitments are like New Year's resolutions, but I think you can accomplish anything if you put your mind to it.
