Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - 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.

SparkPeople's Comments

Are you interested in your goals, or are you fully committed? One of the most common complaints among goal setters nowadays is that there’s just not enough time to get to the ones that “really matter.” The real culprit is that most people don’t raise their goals beyond the level of general interest. They’re waiting for a vague time in the future when other things won’t get in the way or when they wrap things up. In other words, when it’s more convenient. And of course, that time never comes, does it? If your goals are truly that important to you, don’t let anything stand in your way. You have the power to say ‘no’ and to set your priorities. Make that commitment and you automatically create an obligation that you’re bound to fulfill.

Short but sweet. I was just remarking to myself this morning that I generally lack commitment- less so than lacking motivation. I have been successful these last 2 months in attaining better health and the I have to say the biggest reason has been that I am COMMITTED to getting it done no matter what.

This quote speaks volumes. I have many many interests but I am not committed always. I need to apply this to my life. I need to get serious about being committed to myself to happiness and health.

WOW!!! This might explain a lot of things. I do have an intrest and I realize that I need to get committed.

This is true, I start my healthy lifestyle plan and then stop and start again. This hit me hard and now Iam doing this healthy lifestyle for plan me and now Iam back on track.

I love this quote! I used to have it as part of my signature on my work email until we had to remove all non-company-related statements.
