(Before It's News)

There is a difference between interest and commitment.  When you are interested in something, you only do it when it’s convenient.  When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results”.
-Ken Blanchard 
Confidence on the outside begins by living with integrity on the inside”.
-Brian Tracy
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change”.
-Charles Darwin
There’s a lot to digest from these quotes.  Unless you are committed to something, you are likely to give it little more than lip service and minimal effort. 
You see it in the office every day.  Some people come in ready to conquer the world.  Others barely make it here and are not really present while they are here. 
Most of us are a little bit of both depending on the day.  With life in general I find that I usually can find the time for people and things that are important to me. 
If someone is unresponsive to you, especially on a personal level, you are probably not important to that person.  Who hasn’t experienced this at some point in their lives when they thought they were in love? 
On a different level, music is a big deal to me.  I will generally spend whatever I need to spend and do what I need to do to buy music or go see a favorite musician. 
Admittedly, age has slowed me down a little.  In terms of survival, I have lived a lot longer than many people so far.  I have also survived every crisis in my life up till this moment. 
Sooner or later something may overcome me but it hasn’t happened yet. 
I have lasted through 31+ years of corporate America when people far smarter and more ambitious fell by the wayside. 
What I have is tenacity, stubbornness, and an ability to change even when I don’t really want to. 
I’m not a superstar but I try to live with enough integrity to have the confidence to do what needs to be done to keep on keeping on!
