LOCK IN YOUR SUCCESS 🤑| The difference between INTEREST and COMMITMENT
It’s not your fault that you haven’t accomplished what you set out to before, but after reading this it will be your fault.
Have you ever wondered why you put every ounce of energy into some of your goals while others never get your attention? It’s all about your commitment level. The difference between interest and commitment is the determining factor of success in anything.
Before you read any further, I want you to take a second to reflect on what you have done throughout your life. Really dive into both the good and bad, your goals, the triumphs, the what if moments, the milestones, the opportunities you have missed out on, the biggest goals you have accomplished, whether it has to do with family, friends, business, sports, I want you to reflect on it all.
Now I guarantee you can think of at least one moment in your life where you could have tried a little harder, you could have put in those extra hours, that one experience could possibly have turned into your biggest regret. I guarantee you were not 100% COMMITTED to that goal, but SIMPLY INTERESTED. There’s a big difference between being interested in achieving a goal and being committed to that goal – and what I’ve seen is that being interested just isn’t enough.
“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
Unfortunately, that’s what 97% of the population are just interested in having a better life and achieving more. They have an interest in getting fit, an interest in blogging more consistently, an interest in starting something, an interest in learning a new skill;
REALIZE BEING INTERESTED WILL NEVER GET YOU TO ACHIEVE GREAT SUCCESS.
Commitment requires being FULLY INVESTED and ALL IN. If you are committed to your goal, you make it the priority and allocate time for action on that goal. Commitment requires you to do whatever it takes and a simple “interest” means you’ll do just enough but not more. I truly see that in every leader who associates with Team Jet Set, we are all entrepreneurs and mission-driven individuals who are committed to making an impact by accepting no excuses, and only results. I see it first hand that anything we do we do it with all of our efforts, the difference between us and a lot of people is we commit to being “all in” even if we don’t know how to achieve the goal, we understand the process. Diving into anything my biggest mentors would always tell me “Lana, if you don’t know how to do something, and you saw a real opportunity, do it anyway and learn how to do it right along the way”
I guarantee any ‘failure’ that you have had in your life, you were not committed to the outcome SO you allowed your emotions to drive your actions, which meant you reverted into doing what felt comfortable and safe. YOU MUST be willing to get uncomfortable and take action, even though it might be scary, to achieve your goal.
MAKE THE DECISION TO REFUSE TO LET ANY EXCUSE WEIGH MORE THAN YOUR COMMITMENT.
When you are committed, you will be relentless in pursuing your goal. Obstacles should never take you out of the game; They simply become a learning opportunity so that you get better at your game.
How do you know the difference? Why does it matter? Here are seven of the key differences between being interested and being committed.
1.) If you are interested, you show up sometimes. If you are committed, you show up all the time.
2.) If you are interested, when things get tough, you give up and move onto your next “interest”. If you are committed, no matter how tough things get, you find a way over, under, around or through obstacles.
3.) If you are interested, you dabble in a bunch of interests. If you are committed, you concentrate your energy on achieving a much shorter list of objectives. In short, you focus.
4.) If you are interested, you are easily distracted and often fall victim to shiny object syndrome. If you are committed, you are so focused that you often don’t even notice the irrelevant shiny objects around you.
5.) If you are interested, you don’t set goals; rather, you just let it happen. If you are committed, you set goals in a way that maximizes the probability you will achieve them, and you regularly monitor your progress. You use the S.M.A.R.T. approach to goal-setting.
6.) If you are interested, you let the fear of failure and other fears keep you from achieving your objectives. If you are committed, you realize that every “failure” is just another step in the direction of achieving your goals.
7.) If you are interested, you allow perfectionism to inhibit your progress, working hand-in-hand with fear of failure to limit your success. If you are committed, you understand that perfectionism is the enemy and you continue to make forward progress, even if each step is not perfect.
You can’t afford to dabble or just be interested in the people and activities that are truly important in your life anymore. Interest will usually get you nowhere close to great success and I promise it’s the root cause of failure. Ask yourself. “Am I committed, or am I just interested”? If you answer back, “I’m not sure,” or “I’m just interested,” then, you probably need to reconsider where you are focusing your energy.
It’s EASY TO WORK HARD AND GRIND WHEN YOUR FIRST STARTING AND HAVE A SICKENING BURNING DESIRE FOR SUCCESS. DO WHAT YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO DO AFTER THE FEELING OF BURNING DESIRE HAS PASSED.
IM CHALLENGING YOU NOW TO MAKE THE CONSCIENCE DECISIONM TO:
COMMIT TO YOUR PLAN.
COMMIT TO ELIMINAING FEAR.
COMMIT TO PAYING THE PRICE.
COMMIT TO STAYING FOCUSED.
COMMIT TO DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES.
COMMIT TO LIVING A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE.
