The Journey; Not the Destination

 

“It’s so cheesy to say this but it’s the journey, not the end goal, that’s important.”  – Emma Watson

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity, but in doing it.” – Greg Anderson

“Success is not a destination: It is a journey.” – Zig Ziglar

Let the end destination lead you, but live along the way.

Back when you were cast in the school play, it probably consisted of daily rehearsals, learning blocking, memorizing lines, and the list goes on. And when you finally got to showtime and how ever many times you preformed it live for an audience, there was almost a sadness that it was over. This thing you had been working on for weeks/months, the relationships that grew, the characters you got to play, the story you were privileged to tell–all came to an end only to be lived in your memories.

The takeaway and the things you remember most were found along the way–not just the thrill of performing at the end and though amazing as it is, there was much fun and joy to be had before the curtain rose.  When you look back, isn’t it true that many of the memories were from the rehearsals and weeks leading up to the performance?

The journey is what’s important. And when you enjoy the journey, you’ve already won no matter the performance at the end.

Enjoy the journey and you’ve already won. 

The connections you make with others. The fun you experience in rehearsals. The struggle you went through and came out the other side stronger and better than before–those are the things that stay with you and make the end goal so meaningful. So make sure you’re enjoying the journey on the way to your success. You do not have to be miserable in order to deserve success. Remember that.
