“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. 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
With the 2014 Winter Olympics only weeks away, Ken Blanchard quote really speaks to what drives Olympians. They don’t make excuses they drive for results. They put all of their energy toward one goal. It might be to represent their country at the Olympics, to win a medal or to bring home gold. They set a goal and they put everything they’ve got into achieving it. They work toward their goals even when it isn’t convenient, when their bodies want to stop; they keep going.
Do you have something that you’ve been trying to achieve but you aren’t taking the steps to get there. Is is more of an interest versus an commitment? What will it take to move to make that commitment?
