Why do we consistently break the rules that we set for ourselves? Always relying on an authority figure, app or even a symbolic object to keep us accountable, lend us some strength or guilt-trip us?
Our track record of breaking our self-promises, overstepping our decisions and choosing the path of least resistance is awful. Though we may be a free country, still the smallest entity: The Individual is relinquishing its freedom every day and in every way because of poor self-governance.
Today is a good day to raise your standards and begin the fight to be self-reliant. A worthwhile place to begin is to keep your word. Especially with yourself.
