It’s The Journey That Counts!

When most of us set a goal or try to improve our lives in some way, we focus only on the end result we want to achieve. We see it shimmering in the distance like the Promised Land, our own personal utopia.

We fantasize about how much better our lives will be when we reach our goal, and we can’t WAIT to get there!

As great as the end result can be, don’t forget to enjoy the journey along the way. The biggest benefit of any goal we achieve is not what we “get” because of it, but WHO WE BECOME through the achievement of it.

Think about that for a minute.

If you put all your expectations into some distant end result, you miss out on the best part. Instead, focus on who you are now and who you are becoming in every new moment. Let this awareness dictate your actions so you can more easily move forward, not by force but by passion and joy.

Enjoy the journey and let each moment be its own reward. That’s TRUE success.

“Forever is composed of nows.” – Emily Dickinson
