Is your attachment sabotaging what you’re committed to?

o you take action to ensure you are filling up your life with things you love? Are you being patient and loving with yourself during the process? Are you aligned with your principles and values to keep yourself committed to the process? Do you give yourself the space for trial and error, to find what works best for you? When you find what works best, do you grant yourself the time it takes to pick up momentum and begin to see results? Do you continue to increase the challenges in your life as you begin to surpass what were once challenges? 

All of us want to live the life of our dreams and some of us do. No matter what that looks like. Most end up settling for a lesser version of what is really wanted just because we aren’t actively committed to that best version. Most people are aware that they are living like this. Whether they’d like to admit it or not, they are. They chose every day to live in that lesser version and just accept that this is the way it has to be. They think that this was what was meant to happen, so they just take it for what it is. Then, there are some that want to live a powerful life we love but don’t realized we’re more attached to the thought of it, than we are actively committed to making it a reality. We know what’s possible, we may know there are things that need to be done to get us there (whether they are being done or not), we know we can have it, we know what it would be like, but it isn’t in existence, it isn’t happening in real time nor are the actions being taken for it to fall into place. 

Now ask yourself; Are you attached to the thought of living a life you love? Or, are you actively committed to living a life you love? What side of the scale are you on? What is it going to take to get to actively committed to living a life you love now that you are aware you were always just attached to the thought of living a life you love? Let me ask you this really important question next… Why do you want to be actively committed to living a life you love? What would that look like for you? You’ve got to get yourself committed to why you choose to live in that specific way of being. That why, that is where the passion lies, that is where you will find the inspiration and whatever else it takes to actually actively commit to living a life you love. You have to be so in love with your why it makes you crazy in the best way possible. 

Imagine how you would carry yourself to those you interact with when you are actively committed to living a life you love verses when you are attached to the thought of living a life you love! When you are actively committed people see the actions being taken, they see the commitment to get whatever is desired, they see the drive to fill your life with the things you love the most. They get that you are passionate about whatever it is and that brings them a sense of peace, hope and love. You stop looking at the end result and start living in the present and being with the reasons why… 

Remind yourself daily why you choose to powerfully live a life you love every day and plan out how you are going to actively commit to making that happen. The actions you start to take will reflect that you are actively committed. Having that reason will make the world of a difference. Ensure that reason makes the world of a difference with everything you do. 

I would love to know how you are actively committing to living a life you love! My passion in my why lands in your lap. Everything I do, what I am actively committed to, is positively impacting every human I interact with. That is what I live for, I choose powerfully to make sure that everything I do in my days will positively impact the world around me. I was once someone who didn’t know who to reach out to. I didn’t love myself. I didn’t love my body. I didn’t even see a purpose in my existence. And now I have discovered that I exist to impact this world is such a positive way. And I am actively committed to fulfilling on that every day. YOU are my WHY!! 

I’d love to connect with you on Instagram, you can find me at @ambersabourin

I also want to acknowledge Landmark Worldwide and all their teachings which introduced many conversations and became the clearing I needed to discover the distinction between how I’ve been attached in all areas of life versus being committed to transforming all areas of my life. 

Much love to you all,
