The Brutal Reality ...
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
I joined SP back on May 1, 2012. I "started" forward on a healthy lifestyle ... I joined a couple teams, lost a little weight, then some life issues got in the way and I lost focus. I deleted the teams I was on, including the "SP Class of ..." that everyone is defaulted on when they join SP.
I never "left" SP ... for some reason (must be an inner gambling addiction
) I really liked to spin the spark wheel. So pretty much daily I would log in and spin the wheel.
Luckily I had made some
's that didn't give up on me and always let me know they were there and they sent me motivating posts and quotes or just "liked" my status outcome of the spark wheel.
Since the first of the year I have "re-sparked" my commitment to me and I went back to look at some of the teams I was on. I found my original "Spark Class" and here is where I found the reality ... over 12,700 people joined SP that same week as me. Out of that huge number I had a hard time finding 10 people that were still active (recent status or blog post update). I am truly shocked
by what I found.
's know that you are "the few, the proud, and in the minority" that you are still here and reading this. I am amazed at how many people dropped out. I am sure that someone has calculated the percentage.
for not letting me give up. I feel a strong need to pay this forward and reach out to other sparker's who may be just hanging around out there like I was and let them know we are all in this together.
