Are You Committed or Interested in Achieving Your Goals?
When you look at this bacon & egg breakfast, one animal was committed while the other was just interested in giving us a delicious breakfast. The pig was committed and the chicken was just interested. Which one are you?
Achievement Is Tied To Commitment
Looking back on being an entrepreneur for almost 16 years now, I realize there is a huge difference between being interested and being committed. When I was totally committed to my goal, I always achieved it, however, when I said I decided on my new goals and I was not 100% committed to it, I always fell short. It’s like the pig and the chicken. One gave his life and was totally committed while the other basically participated.
How Do We Achieve Our Goals?
When we are committed we are thinking about our goals all the time and therefore we see, experience and get what we are looking for. Our brain is designed to look for things which match our vision, therefore, our outer world will always match our inner world. There are billions of bits of data all around us, and our brains can only take in 2,000 bits of data at once. We are ignoring 99.9% of the bits of data around us all the time! We see and recognize in our outer world, the things we are looking for which matches our picture in our inner mind already! Wow!
