Think about a goal you've set for yourself. Now, are you interested in it, or are you committed to it?
Here's the difference. "When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses – only results." - Ken Blanchard.
John Assaraf, the entrepreneur behind five multi-million dollar companies, shares that his first mentor asked him if he was interested in or committed to reaching his goals before he got started.
When you're interested in a goal, you like the idea of it, but you're not entirely dedicated to reaching it. Therefore, any excuse or obstacle that comes in your way succeeds.
Let's say, for example, that a person is interested in losing weight and becoming fitter. They may start their journey, may workout for a few weeks, but eventually stop for some reason—unhealhty food, laziness, a birthday party, etc.
On the other hand, consider that this person is now committed to losing weight. This commitment will act as a driving force and help them keep going when motivation fails.
So, reflect on the things you haven't yet achieved in your life. It might be a career goal, a health goal, anything. Now, if you really want to—commit to making it happen.
Go all in, and nothing can stand in your way.
