The most important contract you will ever make is the one you make yourself. Your word is good. Your word stands for something. When you say something and follow through, you build respect for your word. This gives you the strength that when you commit, you make things happen. It teaches you respect for your word, it teaches that you can’t say things without follow through. The power of your word gives you an incredible strength. Not just with yourself. But with others. You have respect for yourself. And that commitment effect makes you feel good about yourself.
