If we work really hard to achieve our goals but don’t enjoy the journey, we’re delaying the essence of life. Committing to our goals doesn’t mean we slave away at work we dislike, celebrating only the destination.
A real abiding commitment means that we love what we do each day. We are at least as passionate about the path as we are about the results. If we love the path we’re on, our passion motivates us to keep taking the next step.
Life isn’t a destination, but rather a journey. Enjoying our journey means to enjoy what we do in life…every step of the way. Now, everyday is not going to be perfect, nor will everything go our way. But we have a responsibility to ourselves to bask in the moments of our life; all of them…and continue moving forward.
In this world, we will never arrive at a place where everything is perfect and we have no more challenges. As admirable as setting goals and reaching them maybe, we can’t get so focused on accomplishing our goals that we make the mistake of not enjoying where we are right now.
If we are fixated on reaching the destination, we may forget that we are presently on the journey. In fact, we are often on the journey for much longer than the time spent at the destination.
So why not make enjoying the journey an objective? It might just be that when we put more joy back into our daily work, that achieving our goals also become much easier.
Summing-up: It’s not the destination. It’s the journey. Life is about our way to reach the destination not the destination enjoy our journey to the destination.
