The journey toward any result- whether that result is being amazingly good at what you do for a living or great in the way you conduct your life- is just as important than the end. I guess what I am inviting you to consider is that climb offers you far more value and as many rewards as getting to your mountain top.
Because the climb to your ideas shapes your character, offers you opportunity to realize your potential and test you to see how much you really want to win. It is the climb that teaches you, transforms you and evokes the genius that inhabits you. you get to develope the Qualities of Greatness, such as perseverance, courage, resilience, compassion and understanding.
Sure, getting to the dream feels deliciously wonderful. I will be the first to agree with you on that. But it does not bring you the same sustained gifts that the journey does. We learn more from the time that tests us than we do from times of success.
So, the next time you feel impatient or frustrated or hopeless enroute to the professional and personal life that you want, remember that precisely where you are might be the best place you could possibly be.
And maybe the journey is better than the destination!!
