You promised you would answer every lodge Summons sent to you, and you did! Being true to your word is a foundation whereon to build consistent daily improvement to become a better man.
Answering a simple dinner RSVP may not seem like a big deal, but studies have shown that your brain processes every interaction with others to help it identify what you believe to be your own character as a man. If you gave this no thought whatsoever and it was no trouble to answer this request that you said you would answer, then your brain has already classified you as a man of your word and this action simply reconfirmed it for yourself.
However, if this was a pain in the neck for you to do, it bothered you to have to answer, and created any level of stress, that means that the person your brain believes you to be was not yet in alignment with your actions. That misalignment between who you believe yourself to be and the actions you are taking is a primary source of all stress in life.
Your choice is to continue doing things at the level you are now, or to begin developing the habits you know will help you to become the man you want to be. After repeating and confirming these new high-character habits over and over, your brain will adjust to your new standard.
Following through, even on the small things in life reaffirms that you are in fact a good man, with unlimited potential to improve. Thank you taking part in this character building exercise. I look forward to seeing you confirm this character trait for yourself again next month.
