Are you Involved or Committed?
Wednesday, March 07, 2012
I've been trying to find a friend that has gone into hiding.
When I looked at a spark team for a particular week, I find
it has 14,000 plus members. A lot of the weekly teams have
that many members. A majority of those new members have set
their pages to private. No big deal, that's their privilege.
The question is: What made them join? Did they want help
and support in their journey? Was it a feel good thing, I joined
and now I'll lose weight?
The active members are really committed to their "lifestyle" change.
They get the support and motivation they are looking for. I am
motivated by their inspiring stories, the recipes they post, the great
meals they have taken pics of and posted.
Just like joining a gym, you commit, you pay, you go, you workout, you
get results. My husband joined a gym about 6 years ago. He committed,
he paid his $30 a month. Did he go? NO, he never set aside the time. He
wasn't as committed as he thought he would be. Finally, after about 5 years,
he finally quit the gym, he finally quit paying the monthly fee. The only
result was he lost weight in his bank account. What good and healthy food
could he have bought that money he "wasted"?
He is committed now, to a healthy lifestyle. He works in his garden, at least
he's moving. The Gazelle is in the Dining Room and the Total Gym is in
the Living Room. He does spend time on them.
I am committed also. I admit I haven't been "on track" as much as I was in
the beginning, but I am committed.
? In a bacon-and-egg breakfast, what's the difference between the Chicken and the Pig?
Ans: The Chicken is involved, but the Pig is committed!
Are you involved or committed!!
