Are You Interested Or Committed?

Are you interested or are you committed? This question is where the rubber meets the road. This is where I might lose you.

Some people will say, “Oh yeah, I’m interested in having my own business!” They’ll read what I have to say, or listen to a podcast, they’ll nod their heads and say, “That sounds like a good idea.”

But they won’t actually go out and do it.

They won’t do what it takes.

They won’t buy the educational materials, the books that are recommended, or attend the training events. They won’t read Think and Grow Rich.

They won’t invest in themselves and get the continuing education they need, or find a mentor.

There's a lesson to be learned about commitment from breakfast. “When it comes to breakfast, the chicken is interested, but the pig is committed.”

It’s one thing to lay an egg and contribute that to breakfast; it’s another thing entirely to give yourself up to be the bacon.

How about you? Are you interested or are you committed?
