There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.
Everything that you do in this life has it's perks... Rather some be good or some bad they are there to help you with success. I consider business and work to be like a marriage with a strong commitment. When you commit to something there is no doubt in your mind that it's what you want to do. I told myself at a very young age that, "I will commit and succeed in everything I do" Never giving up on life or my goals. I could have taken the "Easy" but "Hard" road like many that would have led me to an early death or without freedom but I chose success. When you set your goals high enough for you to reach them but low enough for you to grab your setting yourself up for Greatness. Everything is a work in progress and there are NO shortcuts in life nor are there any elevators to success. Besides, if there were elevators I would take the stairs anyways. Because, anything worth having in this world is worth fighting for. There's no testimony without a test and every journey has a struggle.
