The Difference Between Interest and Committment

If you’re interested, you’ll do what’s convenient. If you’re committed, you’ll do whatever it takes. – John Assaraf

Many people are “interested” in succeeding, they’re interested in achieving certain goals.

Truth be told, I am (merely) interested in some (of my) goals.

The difference between what I’m interested in and what I am willing to work hard for is commitment.

When one is committed they will do whatever it takes to move forward:

They will try new things.

They will risk failure (i.e. things not going as exactly imagined… )

They will ask for help and support.

They will put aside, or eliminate, certain tasks or requests.

They will help others in important and authentic ways, knowing, but not expecting, that service comes back – often many-fold/multiplied

They will say “No.” to things that will detract from either 1) the doing of the hard work necessary or 2) the rest and recovery necessary to carry out their commitment.

They will do whatever it takes.
