  5. Are You Interested or Committed?

Are You Interested or Committed?


Are you staying focused on finishing strong this year? I had some great feedback last week. It seemed like this one touched a chord with many, but are you really committed or just interested? Do you really want to achieve those goals you set and finish the year a winner?

There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either in or out. There’s no such thing as a life in-between.
Pat Riley

There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when its convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.
Kenneth Blanchard

Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.


Losers make promises they often break. Winners make commitments they always keep.
Denis Waitley

When you are committed, you stay really focused. You show up all the time. When times are tough, you find another way; you set clear goals and know that little failures are just stepping stones to success. You never give in. And you know you will achieve success.

Wishing you quintessential success
